The West End is a neighborhood in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., bounded by K Street NW to the south, Rock Creek Park to the west and north, and New Hampshire Avenue NW and 21st Street NW to the east. The West End is so named because it was the westernmost part of the original L’Enfant Plan for the city of Washington, before the annexation of Georgetown. It is home to the embassies of Qatar and Spain as well as the Delegation of the European Union to the United States. The George Washington University and George Washington University Hospital are on the edge of the West End, at Washington Circle.
The West End is home to numerous luxury hotels, upscale condominiums, and fine dining restaurants. The neighborhood exists due in large part to a 1972 urban renewal plan prepared by the city’s Office of Planning and Management, designed “to bring life to a declining part of the city.” Titled “New Town for the West End,” the aerial photograph on the cover of the study showed the area that was planned to become a “new intown community.” The neighborhood is adjacent to Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle, and Downtown.
The West End is currently a hotbed of development, with hundreds of new luxury condominiums either under construction or in the planning phase.
