Welcome to Logan Circle, DC

A charming, historical community with an urban feel

 

Logan Circle is a quaint neighborhood in Washington, DC. It’s named after a traffic circle located within it, and while that may not be impressive, this community is. It has a strong urban vibe and an eclectic appeal. While it lies in a busy city, it aims to have its own character and charm separate from traditional Washington DC.

The community has numerous historic landmarks and two residential neighborhoods that are historic districts. Much of this region is sophisticated and upscale. The market matches that charm. Much of the Logan Circle real estate market is made up of historic homes – restored Victorians and colonials with impressive red brick and architecture. Yet, it’s also home to various apartments and some new construction in loft condos, especially in the 14th Street and P Street corridors.
