How the hell did private real property arise in DC?

DC - the District - a ceding of land from originally VA and MD to the Union in order to provide a location for the government. So all land in the ceded plot was from states to the federal government. I ask then how did this federal land meant to be used for governmental purposes end up in the hands of private folks? If the land had been kept federal then places for the Congress folks to stay could have been built and there would be minimal cost since the properties would always belong to the Union. What happened? How did it happen? Is it legitimate? Is it constitutional? I think not.
