Does $1180 sound reasonable for this 1 bedroom?

  • I looked at the building in 2007. The apartments were tiny. Although we did apply to live there… but they were $850 a month in 2007. Amazing in the three years that they’ve gone up by so much and sad really.

  • If I could afford $1180 for a one-bedroom I would probably live in an area that hasn’t had three shootings in the past two weeks.

  • Seems like a good deal for being so close to the metro- but they don’t allow pets, boo!

  • I live in this building. It’s a wonderful location and full of friendly neighbors. Plus, I had no problem talking the residential manager into letting me have a pet (for no fee.) However, maintenance is a pain in the ass and the management company that runs it is ridiculous. But seriously, if you’re worried about safety here, stay in the suburbs. This place is great.

      Does this mean it’s not safe at all or that it’s just as safe as other areas? I’m considering buying a place on this block so I’m genuinely interested in your thoughts. Been living on the southern end of Columbia Heights for 3 years now and it seems like more activity happens in my part of the hood.

      • When I moved here, I had some people tell me how dangerous it was and that I was crazy. I think the neighborhood has a bit of a bad reputation that is more than a little off. While there is some violence in the general area, the police response time is insanely fast (last time I heard gun shots, there were sirens less than a minute later.) I’ve never felt uncomfortable or unsafe here.

  • This area is pretty safe to me. Lived in the general Petworth area for over 8 years.

  • I live in one of the town homes next door. I’ve never had any problems concerns about about safety. My neighbor’s young grandkids play out on the sidewalk all of the time. There seem to be new amenities popping up in the neighborhood every day.

  • It isn’t a bad price but I pay a similar amount living in Park Place right above the Metro. The same price gives you fairly new building, very good security with fob key access, garage parking, gym and 24/7 concierge with a great maintenance staff.

    I don’t think it is a bad deal but I think there are definitely better ones out there that will give you more for the money.
