Wondering about Deanwood:

“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

“A new $67 million mixed use project is being developed at the intersection of Minnesota Avenue and Benning Road NE in Ward 7 next to the Minnesota Avenue Metro station. It will offer 346 affordable residential rental units available at 60% area median income, 30 market rate residential rental units, 20,000 square feet of retail space that includes a 5,000 square foot restaurant and an allocation of 4,000 square feet for local and small businesses and 255 parking spaces.

A partnership of Donatelli Development and Blue Skye Construction was awarded development rights at Minnesota-Benning. The team anticipates a construction start in the summer of 2012 with a winter 2014 expected delivery date.”
