Emerald Street NE Historic District

Posted on May 26th, 2017

Residents of Emerald Street, NE (13th/14th/E/F streets)  sought a historic district to protect their street. ANC 6A sponsored the application, which CHRS supported. After much hard work by the residents, the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) approved the new historic district on May 25, 2017.  HPRB members noted that Emerald Street is “one of the most beautiful streets in the whole city” and has a “wow factor.”
