Truxton Circle, nestled between booming Bloomingdale and Shaw in Northwest Washington, has been slower to change than its neighbors.
The modest rowhouses, smaller than Bloomingdale’s Victorians, change hands quietly, with an occasional gut renovation. The 13 social service agencies packed into the small neighborhood attract a sizable population of homeless and needy citizens to the sidewalks during the day.
According to Trulia, the median sale price year-to-date for Truxton Circle is $645,000, marking a 14 percent increase since 2014.
Now, one development firm may significantly boost the upper level of the neighborhood’s price range with $1 million condos.
