Park Road Courts

Park Road Courts was one of the earliest apartment buildings built in Columbia Heights.

The three-story structure was completed while the neighborhood was transitioning from a wealthy suburban enclave to an area of moderately priced row houses and apartment buildings. The modestly appointed building would have appealed to middle income earners for its attractive location near the shops and restaurants at the intersection of 14th Street and Park Road, and for its accessibility to downtown Washington via the nearby streetcar line. The buff brick Classical Revival style building is the work real estate developer John L. Warren and the architecture firm Hunter & Bell.
