SHAW-HOWARD U

 
 
 

In the heart of DC’s vibrant and culturally-rich neighborhood, Shaw is embedded with a world-class university and cultural and entertainment venues within the northwest quadrant of the District. The revival of Shaw and U Street has transformed it into a destination neighborhood for retail, restaurants, restored theaters and a thriving nightlife scene for a young and diverse population.

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.
