When it comes to living in a city, proximity is everything. Being close to family and friends, your favorite activities, and planning your commute to work are all equally important factors to consider when choosing a neighborhood. It can be challenging to find a location that balances not only your wants and needs, but the vibrancy of downtown with a quieter, close-knit community you can escape to at the end of the day.

The Fort Totten neighborhood in Northeast Washington DC has found that balance, with easy access to all the destinations and amenities of DC while still offering local and unique experiences. Riggs Park Place, coming soon to the Fort Totten neighborhood, is just a 10-minute walk to the Fort Totten Metro, with coffee shops, dining options, breweries, and art installations just around the block.
