  • I mean, you can walk to Harris Teeter from there. It’s like 3 miles. But okay.

    Guessing they mean Trader Joe’s?

  • Okay and okay deal with amenitities and utilities included. I kept imagining tweed streets, “Nice View of Treed Street.”

  • Plenty of 2Br places in the city going for that price, with slightly newer appliances or at least a bigger kitchen. Guess it’s all about the location…

    • Where do you see 2 bed rentals listed for $1825/month? I haven’t seen any 2 bed listed for that price for a looooooooong time.

    • You don’t. What’s with these people poisoning the well with ideas that there’s some better rental market out there that’s invisible to the rest of us; it’s just frustrating. This is a perfectly fine deal for this area. I’m moving to a much more attractive unit with better in-unit amenities for the same price, but utilities are not included and there aren’t really any building amenities; and it’s north of Columbia Heights. The price makes sense from what I’ve seen for having a pool and fitness room and being closer to “everything”.

  • this is insane. i am one block closer to the foggy bottom metro and pay $700 less

    • You’re getting an insanely good deal. I know someone that’s paying $1450/month for a roach infested studio in that area, so $1825 seems fair for this.

      • @totanon If you’re paying $1125 for a 1br/1 ba that’s 1 block from Foggy Bottom you’re getting one of the best deals in the city of Washington. I remember my ex-gf rented a studio a block from that metro station in 2005 for $1350. You’re in a bigger unit, 7 years later, for $200 cheaper?

        • Seriously, $1125 for a one-bedroom in Foggy Bottom is an insane deal. Does your landlord still think it’s 2002?

    • Not relevant unless you moved in last month.

  • it looks a little small from the photos

  • I have a friend who rents a studio for $800 two blocks from here so I would say no. Keep looking there are deals out there.

    • They aren’t rewarded to people who “look”, they go to people who luck out timing-wise in snagging a rent-controlled apartment (no one would rent an apartment in NW without rent-control) and a concern only for location rather than the quality of the unit. I currently live in a rent-controlled apartment in a fantastic location. I’m leaving, after having spent six months here, for a place that’s $600 more a month; sometimes “deals” are not worth the thrift.

      • That should say, “no one would rent out an apartment in NW for under $1000 without rent control”.

  • $200-300 overpriced.

  • The Claridge House! I roomed with a college friend for a summer there back in the day, and the rent for basically this same unit was $950. Given that when I say “back in the day” I really do mean it — 15+ years ago, to be precise (gaaaah) — and considering the location and the amenities (they have definitely spruced up the common areas since our day), this sounds like it’s probably about right. The building is a co-op, so I’m thinking the monthly fees are probably higher, which may add to the owner’s costs.
