Check out open houses this weekend in Fort Lincoln, the city’s best value in a great location.
Today, Fort Lincoln is mostly known for its large number of newly constructed homes. However, the Fort Lincoln community provides a plethora of options especially within the condo market. These residences have stood the test of time and offers such amenities as exposed brick, wood-burning fireplaces, substatial square footage and a price point in incomparable to any community in D.C. Here are a couple of properties featured this week on Redfin:
The tower crane, a symbol most associated with developments downtown D.C. has made its way to Fort Lincoln, one of the fastest growing and most amazing communities in Northeast D.C. Once this final phase of construction is completed on Commodore Joshua Barney Drive it will bring nearly 600 new residents to the Fort Lincoln Community. The apartments are 85% market-rate and the townhomes are starting in the upper 500’s. Hopefully our friends at DDOT are making progress on our connection to the Anacostia River Trail because the apartments have a 1:1 parking ratio and the townhomes have 1-2 car garages.
The Transit Employees Federal Credit Union is opening soon at the Shops at Dakota Crossing in Fort Lincoln.

This year Fort Lincoln Day is set to be one to remember! This year we will have an expanded selection of vendors which will serve the needs and interests of all Fort Lincoln residents. In addition, it will feature some sample offerings from some of the future retailers at the Shops at Dakota Crossing, a variety of performances for all ages, community awards, more activities for the Kidos, and a few surprises that are sure to leave a memorable experience for everyone.
As always everything at the event is free (food and all) to friends and family Fort Lincoln Residents and surrounding community. Be sure to bring your lawn chairs, blankets and insect repellent and spend sometime meeting new friends and catching up with old ones. Shuttle service will be provided for Fort Lincoln Seniors for this event. This event is hosted by the Fort Lincoln Civic Association in partnership with the ANC SMD 5C03 & 5C04. I look forward to seeing everyone next Saturday.
