Shaw–Howard University is a Washington Metro station in Washington, D.C., on the Green Line. It is also served by the Yellow Line during off-peak times. The station primarily serves the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, which also contains Howard University.LocationShaw–Howard University station is located within the neighborhood of the same name in the Northwest quadrant of the city, specifically on 7th Street between R and S Streets. It lies just outside the defined boundaries of the Shaw Historic District, which encompasses much the area to the southwest.Transit-oriented developmentWhile other stations along the stretch of the Green and Yellow Lines between Gallery Place and Fort Totten have been successful in revitalizing formerly run-down neighborhoods and accelerating the pace of gentrification, Shaw has been stagnant in comparison to other stations such as U Street or Columbia Heights.Two main projects are expected to catalyze development in the area, mainly Progression Place and CityMarket at O. The former, which will occupy the vacant land on the same block as the northern entrance, is expected to contain 115000sqft of office space (with the UNCF being the anchor tenant), 205 apartments labelled as "7th Flats," and 19000sqft of retail.
