Why the Colonel?

Named after the American Civil War Colonel, Robert Gould Shaw, who commanded the first African American regiment in the US Army in 1863 and is the namesake of the Shaw neighborhood, The Colonel is meant to honor the significance of the unit’s contributions to our nation. The original structure dates back to the turn of the century, though the renovations are forward thinking, like the building’s namesake. Residents will appreciate the style and surroundings, the attention to detail, and the way in which the building commands a presence in this unique DC neighborhood.
