Neighbohood Helper - Landlord

After the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., Columbia Heights saw intense riots, driving people and businesses out and leaving many shops and homes vacant. In 1999, the neighborhood announced a Revitalization Initiative, which began the most rapid gentrification possibly ever in the country. Now there are many businesses and housing from low income to pricey high rises, keeping the economy stable. Unlike many areas classified as gentrified, Columbia Heights is not, nor was it aimed at being, an area of uniform criteria. 46% of the population was reported in 2011 to be African American, 23% Caucasian, 28% Hispanic of any race, and 3% Asian. This neighborhood remains the most ethnically and economically diverse in Washington, D.C.
