  • That’s probably about the going rate for Foggy Bottom, though you probably would need a high tolerance for college students and all that their presence entails. I mean, this building is basically on GW’s campus (one block from Thurston Hall, GW’s massive freshman dorm).

    I would guess there are a lot of GW students living in that building, as well.

    • $1400 for 420 sq ft is the going rate in Foggy Bottom? Yikes. This is a convenient but fairly dull location, unless your parents are fronting for it while you go to GW – or it’s a pied-à-terre for a World Bank/IMF employee.

      • I’m sure you’d pay more if you go with GW housing, so it might be a good alternative for students.

  • Well it isn’t just near GW, this is about as on-campus as GW gets.

    Take into consideration that there are A LOT of GW undergrad students living in this building. I understand that the university has built a lot more housing for students recently, but when I attended GW it seemed like all of the non-university apartment buildings on campus consisted of at least 50% student residents.

    With that being said, I don’t think this is an unreasonable price. There is a lot of demand to live on-campus in non-university housing. It could be a good option for a grad/law student.

  • I wouldnt pay a dime over $1403.90

  • I used to live right around the corner from this building. It is a decent price. There is now a very big dorm between 21st and 22nd on F street, but, as I recall, the student presence is not overwhelming. I was just out of college at the time I lived in Foggy Bottom, so I did not mind a lot of students. By age 24 it gets a little tiring, though, so I moved.
