*Metro bus stops in front of the building
*Laundry room in the building

Given how close you’ll be to Red Derby’s new roof deck, does $910 sound reasonable for this studio?

  • Too cheap, by far. Could prolly get 1200 for that.

  • I agree with Anonymous. I really like that the distance/time estimates are accurate in this post. For once.

    • Except they say it’s 15 minutes to CH metro and 18 to Ruby Tuesday, which is actually closer than the metro. But I see your point: generally they’re pretty accurate otherwise.

  • If they could get 1200, they would be asking 1200.

    • Not if they’re new to this biz.

      • William C. Smith aren’t new to this. They have a lot of older, no-frills buildings. Their prices reflect that.

        • I agree.

          And although I can’t speak to this particular building, I always worry about the bedbug and roach factor with any old buildings like this in the area.

  • That looks exactly my studio in the Webster House condo that I rented in 1993, except the Webster’s parquet floor was a bit darker.

  • $1200?! No way! $910 is pretty reasonable I guess.

    My favorite part of the listing is this:

    “WANT TO RENT CLOSER TO METRO? JUST A 5 MIN. WALK TO Columbia Heights Metro, Target & more!

    When 2445 15th St NW isn’t any closer to a metro stop than this place.
