GLOVER PARK: Georgetown Imperialism Creeps Further Uphill

The Georgetowner features a short article by Nancy L. Simmons of apartmentdetectives.com, about Georgetown Heights, a new U-shaped residential development at the corner of Calvert Street and Wisconsin Avenue.

From the Georgetowner's Nancy L. Simmons:
There is an exciting new property being constructed in Georgetown on the corner of Calvert and Wisconsin Avenue. On June 1, Georgetown Heights broke ground, and in 15 to 18 months these condominiums will be ready to move in to. They opened last week for sales appointments and are listed with McWilliams Ballard. These condominiums range in price from around $700,000 to over 2 million, with parking and storage included. There will be 44 total units, with square footages range from 1430 to over 3100.

One problem: Georgetown Heights is on the border of Glover Park and Cathedral Heights, 7-10 blocks north of the northern boundary of Georgetown.

Simmons seems to be perpetuating the belief that anything north of the Potomac and west of Rock Creek is Georgetown. The border between Georgetown and the next neighborhood north, Burleith, lies near Reservoir Road and R Street.

In fact, when Wanda Baucus, the wife of Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) had her run-in with the law over a bag of mulch, one report I heard said the garden center in question was in Georgetown. (Van Ness Street last time I checked qualified as Tenleytown.)
