  • Another building that is too dam short!

  • Are one bedrooms still starting at $1,900 per month?

  • Do I really have a dirty mind or is this just the best ever euphemism for hookers on call? “Unexpected amenities engineered to bring harmony to everyday life, complimented by social features to keep you engaged”

  • Too much wood in this building. The balconies are completely made of wood and are end-joined to the outer structure. I wouldn’t want to venture out on them.

    What’s funny is that all the non-stock photographs of amenities on their website are in fact at the Constitution Square building (Flats 130/Signature Flats), including the Tynan, the chairs on the terrace outside the Watershed restaurant, and the Capital BikeShare station. If that’s what you’re moving to NoMa for, you might as well live at Flats 130, or at least across the street at the Archstone 1st and M.

  • I walk by this construction everyday, it’s looking great, they’re doing a nice job on it. Re. the balconies, it looks like they are encapsulating the wood frames with metal, so don’t think it will deteriorate. this corner lot has sat empty for years so i’d say it’s a nice addition in a great location.

  • Building is looking great!! I was in the neighborhood the other day and was very impressed with the progress. Excited to see it when it’s completed.

  • I’ve heard that the insane dude with the collies from the Loree Grand is moving there when they open. I’m glad he’ll be gone from the LG and it would make me think twice about moving there.

    • No ground-floor retail, it’s short, and it’s surrounded by a lawn?! (wont’t activate the street)

      It belongs in Falls Church, not in an urban neighbourhood striving to create community.

  • I suspect “Kevin” and “Jim” are associated in some fashion with WC Smith.

    Unsolicited positive comments directly addressing specific details in other commenters’ negative observations tend to be from people promoting their product, not from average reader. (Seriously, “encapsulating the wood frames with metal”? C’mon.)

  • I guess the building is “short” compared to other high-rises that have been built in NoMa in the past few years, but a six-story building doesn’t strike me as “short.”
