  • Kudos to the sellers for having two kids in a two bedroom condo!

    • It looks staged.

    • I think the real kudos should go to the neighbors who can hear every single scream. 😉

      • I’ve actually lived in the building for a few years and never heard the baby next door. The walls are pretty solid.

      • The real issue is that the kids room is directly off of the (small) living/dining combo. Prepare to eat your dinner, do your dishes, watch your movies…in silence.

  • that building will always look horribly out of place, but that does seem like a very good deal for 2 bedrooms in that location

  • Given that my husband and I recently sold our condo there, I’m certainly biased, but I think the units in this building, including the one above, are a steal for the market around U street. The amenities are great, and the condo dues are relatively low (relative to DC condo dues/amenities that is). The location is incredible, and compared to the prices of some of the fancier surrounding buildings, this is certainly much more “affordable.” Based on the sale prices of comparable units that I’m aware of, this seems to be towards the lower end of the price range, particularly given the square footage. So, good deal!

    • Just curious, but why did you guys move out?

      • It definitely wasn’t an easy decision because we loved the place so much, but it came down to wanting more square footage and our own private outdoor space (a majority of the Lincoln Condos have balconies, but ours did not). So we moved to Bloomingdale, where we could afford both, but we still really miss A LOT about the Lincoln. I agree with the commenter below that the place is kind of “vanilla,” but that didn’t bother us since we had the option of making the changes we wanted to our unit. While the finishes aren’t exciting, I wouldn’t say they’re actually any cheaper quality than any other new construction that’s even remotely close to the same price range, just not as shiny and new. Having looked at a lot of condo buildings, I do think you get a good deal of amenities for the dues you pay. And, of course, the location!

  • I have friends who live in this building and bought when it first opened. They’ve made a KILLING. I’m talking hundreds of thousands in equity, even on the 1BRs. That said, this building and it’s apartments are as vanilla as it gets. Cheap finishes, meh amenities, fees are fairly high, snoozefest interiors. BUT its location is unparalleled.
    It pains me that someone will spend over a half million to live here.

    • Its either spend a half-mil here or 3/4 plus mil on a new building with less sqft and higher fees.

    • Many of the units in the building have been redone or refinished–at this point, there can’t be many left that have the original finishes. My husband and I live here and we redid a lot of our unit. We love the building; that unit is a great deal!

  • These places are really out of place in the neighborhood but they are the best deal in DC. Can’t beat the price for that location.

  • This is an amazing steal. Most of the other recent sales in the building have gone for closer to $600 a square foot.

  • I looked at a 2/2 in this building and it was the most claustrophoic one I saw. the Living room was nearly non existent and the bigger of the bedrooms was the only room of remotely useful size, while the bathrooms seemed cheaply done. This looks much better (no square footage listed0) and the price seems right

  • My wife and I just bought a 2 bed/2 bath in this building a few months ago. Compared to the other places in the neighborhood (the Lofts across the street or even the Rhapsody a few blocks down…two places we looked before buying in the Lincoln) you definitely get more bang for your buck here.

    The location is awesome.

  • it may have the location but that is about all you are appearing to get in the building. Talk about builder grade materials and total lack of imagination when it comes to design.
