  • i like the fireplace and gas range, but it looks a bit dark, and the kitchen is incredibly narrow. how many sq ft is this place?

  • The kitchen looks like it needs more lighting in some pictures but not others. Is it in a rowhouse or building…it’s hard to tell. The video intercom system is unique.

  • well the pics leave alot to be desired but assuming the bedrooms are reasonably sized i think it is a pretty sweet deal. 1.5 blocks from the howard theatre and just 1200 to leave their per person. plus it is new construction. plus that building has a flatiron like shape to it. which could be good or bad. and there is a funeral home across the street, though it is under renovation

  • Looks like a good deal. Pictures are a bit fuzzy. Would be interested to what the sq footage is but close enough to the metro.

  • You people are crazy. This is a terrible deal for this neighborhood!

    • I agree! I pay this for my 2 bdrm in Logan Circle. The kitchen looks small and there is no light here either.

      • I agree! This is way overpriced! Take off a few hundred bucks and it makes sense. It’s been posted for a few weeks so it seems like they’re reaching.

  • Bizarre set of pictures. they really like that fireplace and one of the bedrooms! The kitchen looks awfully clautrophobic and pretty flawed for new construction–you might accept this in an older place, but not a new one. perhaps, this was a condo that didn’t sell–2/1s are a tougher sell than 2/2s unless you’re in a Best Address-type building.

    • I agree – the pictures are awful. The fact that they could only manage to photograph the corners of some rooms probably means they’re very small and/or oddly shaped. I was at an open house for sale up the street on the same block and even on a Sunday afternoon there was a fair amount of noise and traffic. That might be tolerable if you’re renting and can pick up and leave, but it wasn’t a great inducement to buy on that block.

  • In another neighborhood, maybe, but not here. Maybe $2100. For two people, you’re paying $1200 to share a bathroom?

  • this place was labeled as the Best Potential Contributor to Gentrification in 2008: http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/articles/35402

  • I lived about three houses up from this building (on 4th) for 3 years. I would not pay this much money to live on that corner, extremely loud, lots of traffic, and TONS of ambulances heading to the Washington Hospital Center and Howard Hospital. I currently pay that much rent for a 2 bed + den, 2 ba, 1700 sq ft place in Bloomingdale with 2-car parking, so I don’t think this is a good deal for the neighborhood.

  • $2400 terrible deal it should be closer to $1700 and I think that is steep. I lived at 403 Florida Ave which is directly next door and the noise was terrible. I paid a whopping $1070 for my place we we moved because of the noise. Parking is fun in that area also.

  • $2,400 certainly isn’t a good deal, but I’d say that’s the market rate for a 2 bedroom in the neighborhood. D.C is changing fast. Don’t be surprised that rentals are going for 20% more then they were 3 years ago. 18,000 new residents in the district in 2011. There is no way that supply can keep up with the population growth in the city with the height restrictions on apartment buildings. If the population continues at a 3% growth rate, there are going to be major rent increases in all neighborhoods.
