CULTURALLY RICH NEIGHBORHOOD + UNIVERSITY ANCHOR
The Shaw-Howard University proposal is centered among one of the
most dynamic DC neighborhoods and a world-class university. Situated within the broader U Street, Shaw, and Howard University areas, the development sites are steeped in music, cultural, and educational history at the heart of the African-American community.
The Howard University sites offer substantial Georgia Avenue frontage and serene areas adjacent to a moderate density residential neighborhood. Amazon HQ2 would be at the center of the Shaw neighborhood, an authentic DC place for Amazonians to feel at home in the mix of old and new, quaint and eclectic, food and fun.
