Kalorama Triangle Kalorama Triangle and Sheridan-Kalorama are two very affluent residential neighborhoods in Northwest Washington, DC. Kalorama Triangle is bordered by Connecticut Avenue, Columbia Road and Calvert Street/Rock Creek Park. Sheridan-Kalorama is immediately west, located between Connecticut Avenue, Rock Creek Park, Massachusetts Avenue and Florida Avenue. Both are accessible from the Dupont Circle and Woodley Park Metro stations.
The chief distinction between the two lies in the more urban character of Kalorama Triangle, and the more suburban feel to Sheridan-Kalorama. The latter is notably the most affluent neighbourhood in Washington, while the Triangle is comparable with Dupont Circle and Woodley Park, in being populated by Washington’s large upper-middle class. Both the Kalorama Triangle and Kalorama-Sheridan are noted for their park-like settings, large single-family homes, spacious and elegant pre-war condominiums and coops, and prestige as desirable addresses within Washington, D.C.

The Kalorama Triangle is a residential enclave in Northwest Washington bounded by three major thoroughfares: Connecticut Avenue, Calvert Street and Columbia Road. Bordering on Rock Creek Park this area enjoys a reputation for its natural attributes—its hilly terrain, cool breezes and fine views over the city of Washington, as well as the close-knit village-within-a-city character of the community. Developed largely between 1897–1931, the neighborhood is filled with architecturally significant free-standing and attached houses, commercial buildings, and a variety of modest and grand apartment buildings sited along curvilinear tree-lined streets. Kalorama Park is located in the Kalorama Triangle.
Sheridan-Kalorama is bounded to the north and west by Rock Creek Park; to the southwest by Massachusetts Avenue N.W.; to the south by P Street N.W.; and to the east by 22nd Street, Florida Avenue, and Connecticut Avenue N.W. It is accessible by Metrorail by the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle stops on the Red Line. Kalorama is assigned to Washington’s Sheridan-Kalorama Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC 2D) and is designated as Single Member District 2D01.
