Washington, D.C. - "A Capital City"

The real estate that comprises the capital of United States, Washington DC does not resemble most contemporary American cities. Unlike other large cities, skyscrapers do not dominate here. In 1910, Congress passed a height-restriction act to prevent federal monuments from being overshadowed by commercial construction. As a result, the eye can never wander too far from expanses of green.

As the capital, its main industry is, naturally, politics. The most famous sites are concentrated in the Washington DC real estate along the central mall, including the White House, individual memorials to four of the greatest presidents, and the superb museums of the Smithsonian Institution.

George Washington himself selected Washington DC real estate as the site of the capital, a diamond-shaped, 100-square-mile plot not far from his property at Mount Vernon. Pierre-Charles L'Enfant, a French engineer who fought in the Revolution, created the classic Washington DC real estate plan.
