  • Man what are they smoking and are they sharing?

  • Came to be awestruck by the dramatic apartment. Leaving disappointed.

  • At that location today, if it really was a very dramatic unit, with a den usable as a bedroom, and garage parking, it would absolutely be worth that rent. But the okay kitchen and okay bathroom photos don’t show a dramatic unit. Maybe there are some gorgeous views or something that doesn’t show in the pictures.

  • It’s lookin’ kinda a dark and basement-y to me.

  • I really don’t understand the under 50 pound rule for dogs. Typically, the larger the dog, the more gentle, quiet, and well-behaved it is. Why not just require references for pets and allow all sizes and breeds? I understand when it comes to certain breeds it might be an insurance thing (not that this is fair) but why a weight limit?

    • Force = Mass * Acceleration

      • Obviously, a large hyper dog would be bad but it’s wrong to assume that all dogs over 50 pounds would cause issues which is why I think references would be better than a weight limit.

        • Agree with @GreatDaneOwner. Yet one sees this sort of restriction over and over again. My only guess is it is a round-about way to ban pitbulls or other breeds people consider vicious (rotties, german shepherds, etc). In terms of neighbor-friendly and/or potential damage to a unit, however, I’d be way more worried about certain high-strung small breeds that are more prone to separation anxiety and non-stop yapping.

        • A weight limit is “hard and fast,” though… presumably no arguing, grey areas, etc.

          Although a weight limit isn’t especially fair to large but docile breeds, like Great Danes, it gets around the issue of people faking/fudging references, and then having someone read and evaluate the references.

    • It’s an apartment building. If a 10-pound dog were running across the floor, it would make noise for the people below. If a 100-pound dog were running across the floor, it would make an unbearable amount of noise for the people below. References on something like this seem way too easy to fake. A weight limit may not get it right every time, but I think it is not inappropriate.

      • Yeah, but a small dog is generally more likely to be running around and barking (I say this as a small dog owner!). I do think the weight restriction is unfair. Puppies and elderly dogs cause a lot of damages (peeing mostly) but you never see age restrictions.

  • Absolutely insane. They will not get one single bite at 3700/month.

  • Are people who can afford that interested in living in Adams Morgan?

  • absolutely ridiculous asking that much rent for that Admo backside neighborhood…parallel damn it
