  • When I was house-hunting, I looked at several places on Florida Ave in that part of town. The houses are so close to the street that it sounds like you’re living in the middle of a highway. It wasn’t for me, but if someone doesn’t mind the traffic noise this sounds like a great deal.

  • I wonder if this is that cool purple building right on that corner. They’ve had the hardest time getting someone to buy that place. Looks good on the inside–I think its a great rental deal, as long as it comes with earplugs!

    • i think that’s at the intersection of 5th and FL, but on the 400 side of the block.

      my impression is that the top two units sold, but they were having difficulty with the basement. which is understandable, considering how the basement was priced almost identically to the other units.

  • huge factor would be if it’s on florida or 5th, but I think I like it!

  • i think its a good deal. seems like alot of space and you get your own bathroom for just over 1k a month. that is a bargain. if utilities were included it would be the deal of the month.

    I live on Florida between 6th and 7th and the noise from ambulances going in and out of Howard Hospital is pretty bad. We’ve gotten used to it, but it takes a while. That said, the pricing isn’t too bad and it’s a good location in terms of public transportation. We pay $150 more a month for the ground and top floors of a two unit rowhouse (the other tenant has the basement), but we also have 2.5 bath.
