Saturday, June 12, 2004D.C. Embarks on Redevelopment of Long-Neglected Corridor Housing developers searching for ever-scarcer D.C. sites are moving into a new neighborhood: The H Street corridor of Northeast, a dilapidated stretch of boarded-up buildings and riot-scarred storefronts that for decades has seen little investment. Two large parcels, slated for hundreds of residential units, are now under contract along H Street, a heavily traveled east-west thoroughfare on the northern edge of Capitol Hill. Huge office buildings are also under construction or planned nearby.
