Fresh on the heels of the launch of its new national site last fall, real estate blog network Curbed has launched a blog covering the Washington, D.C. market.

Manhattan-based Curbed, which initially covered the New York City market when it launched in 2004, also offers blogs dedicated to the Hamptons, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles markets.

With the launch of the national site in September, Curbed NY moved over from to Other sites in the Curbed network include travel blog Gridskipper, restaurant blog Eater, and fashion blog Racked.

In officially announcing the launch of the new blog Thursday, Curbed DC’s Amy Rose Dobson promised "neighborhood news, real estate porn, architectural renderings, or bulletins that start with the letters ANC" will all be on the site’s radar.

(Washington D.C.’s Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, or ANCs, help determine the district’s policies on zoning, traffic, parking and other issues).

There’s already a month’s worth of content on Curbed DC, starting with a Feb. 1 post about a $1 million price reduction on the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s house, which has been on the market for more than a year.

"It seems great location and political history are no match for a recession," the post noted in typical Curb style. At nearly $7 million, the asking price "is a little over a million per bedroom," the blog’s debut post noted, also venturing that maybe "one of the many local aspiring politicians will feel called to service and come up with the cash."

Curbed founder Lockhart Steele was formerly a managing editor at gossip site Gawker, which is a Curbed investor. Inman News Publisher Brad Inman has also invested in Curbed.
