Welcome to Mid City
A bustling and independent neighborhood with interesting cafes, shops, and restaurants
What began in 1965 is now one of the most unique, mixed-use residential developments in the history of DC. Developers and community investors formed Mid City into one of the most attractive neighborhoods by building new condo and apartment buildings alongside classic Victorian houses that have been around since 1900. It is a centrally located and independent neighborhood that features fabulous amenities and stunning architecture.
