Shaw is experiencing an urban renaissance of unprecedented proportions thanks to its proximity to the downtown core, excellent transportation Screen Shot 2014-02-14 at 1.35.27 PMaccess and lively cultural and entertainment venues. Residents enjoy the ever-increasing dining and retail commercial conveniences, while local and national retailers like the rapidly increasing demographics. Once home to jazz legend Duke Ellington, the Shaw neighborhood still pulses with a rhythm felt by residents and visitors alike. The 2.3 million square foot Walter E. Washington Convention Center, a forthcoming 1,167-room Marriott Marquis convention center hotel and the new national headquarters of the United Negro College Fund have spurred the development of other complementary projects. CityMarket at O Street, a $330 million development, promises to be the neighborhood’s new epicenter in 2013-2014 and will be anchored by a 72,000-square-foot flagship Giant Food supermarket, a 182-room Cambria Suites Hotel, 626 residential units and 560 parking spaces. Cultural investment has also been made with the re-opening of the 650-seat Howard Theater, operated by Blue Note Entertainment Group, the new, award-winning, Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library, and new public art throughout the neighborhood. Shaw, with its four designated historic districts, is adjacent to nationally recognized Howard University and its 10,600 students. Numerous African American historic sites, including the Carter G. Woodson Home—a unit of the National Park Service — make the neighborhood a heritage tourism magnet. – See more at:
