  • Having lived there, think its a very good deal given the amenities and proximity to the redline and giant.

  • A parking space for $70/month sounds very reasonable.

    Reads as a great deal to me. Much nicer pool than the one my building has.

  • Mmmmmm, that pool looks very good right about now!

  • I looked at buying a place in this building and they are ripping you off on parking since each owner is given two parking spots.

    • Now that’s a lie. There is inside parking and outside. No one gets two spots. Most people don’t have one.

  • That’s a good deal. For that price you get an efficiency with no parking in the building next door.

  • Something isn’t right. Given today’s rental market that owner is short at least $500/month.

    • why do you say that? Some property owners want to be able to just pay their costs to avoid the income generated from being a landlord impacting their taxes. If they simply want to pay down principle, it’s realistic rent.

    • I used to live in that building in a basically identical unit and paid $1500 about 3 years ago. So, I think $1750 is about market rate now, maybe a little under. Also, The building is old and this unit does not look updated, which drops the price some. The pool amenity is great. I also like that you can rent the party room in the basement and have 100+ people over, no problem. The gym is terrible but Gold’s Gym is a block. Since all utilities are included, I was amazed at how much discretionary income I had when living here and splitting the cost with my girlfriend.

        I was (and still am) amazed at how many buildings in DC still have electric included. Not having an electric bill adds up to some serious extra money in your pocket.
