Penn Branch Shopping Center
Perched above Capitol Hill, the Penn Branch Shopping Center opened in 1964, serving the residents in Hillcrest, Penn Branch, Dupont Park and Randle Highlands with local and national retailers, community organizations and small businesses.
The redevelopment of The Shops at Penn Hill represents the transformation of a long-standing community retail center into a newly-designed, vibrant mix of retail, office and residential. Situated adjacent to the affluent Hillcrest and Penn-Branch neighborhood, this exciting new project is well-located and highly visible along the heavily-traveled Pennsylvania Avenue corridor. The Hillcrest and Penn-Branch submarkets offers high incomes and direct access to more than 122,000 D.C. residents.
Leveraging a location on a major vehicular commuting artery serving Washington, D.C. suburbs, Penn Hill will bring new retail to an area that is substantially under-served for grocery, lifestyle and service uses, with underground parking conveniently located on site.
Located amongst several well-established neighborhoods, Penn Hill residences will be developed to compliment this growing community. New residences will suit active lifestyles as well as those who want to relax and enjoy the freedom of apartment living.
The existing shopping center will be transformed into a contemporary place to work, shop and play. Penn Hill will provide shoppers and employees easy access from the surrounding neighborhoods and many other communities.
