The Craigslist ad says:

“ONE BEDROOM LOFT STYLE APARTMENT AVAILABLE immediately for move in. Large windows, high ceilings, gas fireplace and balcony.

Our apartment homes feature a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, garbage disposal and electric range). Hardwood floors, granite countertops, washer/dryer combo and spacious bathroom!!! All utilities and internet included in one price for all $2,500.”

I’ve always liked this building from the outside (I think I’ve nominated it for a ‘best spot for a morning cup of coffee’ as well.) Are you surprised that a one bedroom is going for $2,500 or does that sound about right?

  • That would be a good deal, if it were 2BR.

  • this building always makes you look twice. same with the kind of chateu-whatever on 15th between euclid and fuller.

  • There’s an old wing of the building and a newer wing around back. I went to check out some of the apartments about 4 years ago, but the ones available at that time were all weirdly shaped.

  • I lived there – it was very poorly maintained inside and is a horrible value for its location. Its a decent hike to Col. Heights stop, there is a noisy Howard dorm beside it, and as nice as the exterior and interior appear at first glance, its kind of cheap garbage. Lots of repairs. Horrendous internet.

    The people who run it were always nice, but I wouldn’t rent a 1 BR there for more than $900

    • When did you live there? I never experienced the problems you did (though I will agree that the metro’s a bit far– it’s a better location for someone who primarily drives or takes the bus).

      The only downsides I saw are that the bedrooms are on the small side, and that you can obviously get an apartment in this area for less (but it won’t be as awesome).

  • $2,500 for a one-bedroom? You can’t be serious.

  • I’ve lived there for 2+ years in a 900 sq ft 2BR (with 15′ ceilings, natch) for $2700. I’d call it a bargain considering the level of luxury. The problem is, almost all the apts are 1BR and they are not bargains at all $2300 and up.

    (That said, you cannot find anything comparable anywhere in the city for anything close to $900, so whoever said that above is sure to find all of DC almost equally overpriced.)

  • I looked at this building a few years ago and loved it, but I need a one bedroom and there were only 2-bedrooms available at the time.
