Washington DC Multifamily Homes For SaleA commonly asked question is whether Washington DC row houses are multifamily homes. For all intents and purposes, they are "but just structually". Legally, it has to do with the zoning and special permits primarily designed by the District of Columbia to control density. An argument can be made that some row houses are individual homes that have been built without common walls and with no space between them. And, deeds of ownership can vary, with some row houses deeded as single-family homes and some as condos. The larger picture however, is that row houses are built in large solid blocks and follow a long-established European design that addressed the growing need for housing during the great industrial boom.

By some estimates, multifamily homes account for over half of all residential properties in Washington DC. That percentage may be increasing. From boutique condos to large developments, multifamily homes are playing an integral part in the district’s ongoing revitalization and business improvement plans. In areas like NoMa, the U-Street Corridor, Capitol Waterfront and Penn Quarter, developers are combining office space, retail, dining, entertainment and residences, in ways that promote and drive each other. New construction is also focusing on apartment rentals. In some regards, the city is going back to its earliest model, when the new labor force drove the need for housing.

No two Washington DC neighborhoods are exactly alike of course. While enclaves like Kent, Hillcrest and the Palisades are predominately composed of detached single-family homes, neighborhoods like Shaw, Adams Morgan and Mount Vernon Square are geared towards condos and row houses. Buyers interested in Washington DC multifamily homes have many neighborhoods to choose from, ranging from outlying suburbs to the high-density downtown area with its growing trend of mixed-use developments.
