H Street NE Great Streets Initiative

Image of H Street in development, street scene

H Street, NE is a place where creative ideas for new businesses are being greeted by significant opportunity and a welcoming community. Many businesses and new developments have already found a place on this one-and-half mile commercial district just north of the US Capitol. This historic corridor, which reaches from Union Station to 17th Street, NE, is undergoing a dramatic transformation. Once a somber symbol of the 1968 riots that followed Dr. King’s assassination, it’s now a burgeoning business community – a place where the dreams Dr. King encouraged all to see and pursue are coming true.


Transform the H Street, NE Corridor into a thriving and inviting neighborhood center.
