Park 7 rendering via Donatelli Development
“I’m buying in DC and have seen a lot of cute homes listed in Deanwood, near the Minnesota Avenue train. I know it’s a “dangerous” area and kind of a commercial desert, but I was wondering if anyone knew of real invesment that is happening in the area in the next 2-4 years. I am seriously considering buying there because the prices are right, but I’m concerned about the lack of amenities. I know no one can predict the future, but I guess I’m just looking for some signs. Thanks.”
Ed. Note: From DC.gov:
