  • I live around here and while the inside’s bland, I do appreciate the builder taking the time to try to make the pop-up fit in, unlike the new condo building across the street that only did the front facade in brick.

  • The price of 2 bedrooms in DC seems so crazy to me, as a single girl in my 20s who lives with a roommate. $1575 apiece is steep, man. I couldn’t afford it.

  • This seems about $500 overpriced for the area

    • Agreed, at a half mile from the metro, distance from downtown, single green line trains during rush hour, and safe, but not fancy, neighborhood $2600 seems high even for turn key. I’d expect that on the other side of 14th closer to Mt P

  • Not bad. Sad how numb I’ve become to the prices. One thing I find odd is that they tout the distance to the CH metro while GA Ave/Petworth is half the walk!

    • That’s because the area near the Columbia Heights Metro commands higher rents than the area near the Georgia Ave.-Petworth Metro. They’re closer to the latter, but are trying to act like they’re in the former.

  • Not much upper cabinet space in that kitchen. I have a kitchen with the same problem, and it’s a pain.

  • It PAINS me to say this is probably worth it, given the price per bedroom. The interior is ‘bland,’ (but it’s a rental and at least it doesn’t have 30 layers of paint on anything) but the kitchen and amenities are gorgeous. A little steep for the area, but it is a higher-end apartment.

    • It’s higher end-ish, but parking is extra, the only outdoor space appears to be a tiny little balcony, and the neighborhood is not great (more Petworth than Columbia Heights) and not very close to the metro. Surely one can still do better for 3.15k!

  • I have a used car to sell the person who described this apartment as “stunning luxury.”

  • Man, that’s high, but probably about right because this city has gone insane.

  • Wonder why they didn’t convert to condos?

  • Bad deal. Should be $2600. This is more than my current huge 2BR loft one block from the U Street metro.
