Woodley Park, Former Playground For Presidents

The Woodley Park area of the city is now home to a few luxury hotels, yoga studios, and a Chipotle. But my how far it has come. The developers behind the Woodley-Wardman project on Connecticut Ave have put together a video explaining some of the history of the neighborhood, with a long list of the presidents who used to have homes there. After the first four minutes of history they start to give more information about the development along with some specifics about the architectural design. The project is merging several historic townhouses and adding a new seven-story building to bring thirty-nine condos to the area. Hence their tagline, History Made Modern.
