About West End

A constantly evolving D.C. neighborhood that you should get to know is the West End.

The West End is an eclectic mix of Victorian row houses and condos. The community is situated at the western edge of Downtown on K Street NW, near George Washington University at 21st Street, and New Hampshire Avenue NW and has easy access to Rock Creek Park, Georgetown, and the famed Watergate Hotel.
