Both the Park Morton Public Housing and the Bruce Monroe Site, are located adjacent to the dynamic Georgia Avenue corridor in Ward 1. The community is situated amongst a diverse mosaic of neighborhoods with strong identities and rich historic fabric. Ward 1 is one of the most rapidly changing areas of the city.
As part of the District’s Great Street Initiative, the vision for the Georgia Avenue corridor is a revitalized, pedestrian-friendly corridor anchored by mixed-use development at key sites. This vision for Georgia Avenue was conceived through the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro Station Area Plan, which was completed in 2004. A number of planned and under construction private developments are leading to the revitalization of the broader neighborhood. In addition, many new public investments are being made on the Georgia Avenue corridor.
