Penn Quarter encompasses much of the downtown/Chinatown area north of Pennsylvania between 5th St. NW and 9th St. NW.
Due to its central location within the District, the neighborhood is often referred to as the heart of DC. The area was the hub of activity in the city up through the mid-twentieth century. Theaters, department stores, streetcars, restaurants, and offices made this a lively, bustling part of the city. Sadly, during the 1950s and 1960s the area suffered greatly due to a large base of the city’s population leaving the city for the suburbs. Theaters could no longer sell tickets, transportation options took a nosedive with the removal of streetcar lines, and department stores were forced to close their doors.
President Kennedy, during his inaugural speech, commented on the sad state of affairs of this area of DC. As a response, during his administration, a number of redevelopment projects were planned and developed. Although many of these projects would not come to fruition during his (sadly) shortened time, in 1972, the Pennsylvania Avenue Development Corporation was founded to oversee much of this important work. Some projects that may sound familiar to you today were completed successfully as a result, such as the Federal Triangle area and the Canadian Embassy.
On December 2, 1997 the city got an early holiday gift in the form of a much needed sports and entertainment center – known then as the MCI Center (today, the newly coined “Cap Center”). With this exciting new center for activity came many new businesses looking to benefit from the economic spur this venue would surely bring.
Retail and restaurant re-development followed, creating what today is one of the most vibrant and energetic neighborhoods in the city. From talented street musicians, to culture and art via world renowned museums and art galleries, to performances by the world’s top recording artists in the modern 20,000 capacity Cap Center, Penn Quarter offers walkability and access to some of the most glorious aspects Washington, DC has to offer.
