FROM ITS ART DECO ARCHITECTURE to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to local anchors such as Dance Place, Brookland is a haven for arts and culture.
Furthermore, with tree-lined streets, single- family residences, a new town center and Metrorail access, the neighborhood offers tremendous retail and restaurant opportunities close to the heart of the nation’s capital.
