From a press release:

“The JBG Companies and Walton Street Capital are excited to announce the commencement of sales at an iconic building in the North End of Shaw neighborhood. The mixed-use residential and retail project is located at 2030 8th Street, NW and features 62 residences offering dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the city. Building amenities include ground floor restaurants, public and private rooftop terraces, a fitness center and a resident lounge.

The building features one and two bedroom residences with over nine-foot ceilings, and interior design finishes paying homage to the structure’s commercial past – when it served as a plumbing supply warehouse. Prices range from the upper $300s to $1.9 million. Floor plans, features and renderings are now available on the 2030 8th Street website.


Interior finishes will be a study in cool, contemporary design incorporating natural finished, hardwood floors, custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Bathrooms will be appointed with floating vanities, floor to ceiling porcelain tile surrounds and full-width mirrors.
The building was designed by the New York-based firm, Morris Adjmi Architects, which has recently completed a number of prestigious projects in Tribeca, SoHo and the Gansevoort Market Historic District in New York, including the distinctive High Line Building and 837 Washington.”

  • Is it really so hard for the developer to break down the prices a little more? Obviously the low and high end are the least desirable one bedrooms and the penthouse, but if one were interested in a two bedroom, there is zero indication on the website what the range is for one of those. $500K? $600K? $700K? I mean, come on.

    Marketing fail.

    • I’m guessing the whole “if you have to ask” adage likely rings true here. Given the rapidly rising housing prices in that area, my guess is that the developers are waiting until the last possible moment to set a price so they don’t forgo potential profits.

      • Don’t be silly, anon. The “if you have to ask” adage doesn’t ring true at all. There’s going to be a lot of people who could afford $600,000 condos but not $1,000,000 condos. Of course they have to ask to find out. There will be people in the market for $800k two-bedroom condos but not $1.2 million two-bedrooms. Of course they have to ask. There are going to be people with $1.2 million who’d rather buy a townhouse for $1.2 million but would buy these places for $1 million. These aren’t going to be sold to Russian oligarchs. The price matters a lot.

      • there are people that buy condos without asking the price?

        come one.
        the richest people i know are hyper aware of costs.

    • Yeah agree with other commenter they are probably waiting on interest to set the prices but I skimmed this from the contact page FWIW:

      Jr One Bedrooms From the High $300s to Mid $400s
      One Bedrooms from the Mid $400s to the Low $500s
      Two Bedrooms from the High $700s
      PH Residences from $1MM to $1.7MM

      Also, some of those junior/mini one bedrooms seem terribly small–by my calculations, no more than 450 square feet. If they are starting in the upper $300s, that puts the price per square foot at over $800. Is that what real estate is going for in this area?!

  • The Penthouse units are pretty baller but I’m not really sure that they’re $1.9-milli-baller.

  • These are gorgeous; a very welcome addition to the neighborhood.

  • Ugh, stainless steel appliances are so played out.

  • Why don’t these new places build a bath tub anymore. Just a shower. Some of us enjoy baths!

  • In the pictures it looks like ranges are electric not gas. Thumbs down.

  • I wonder what the condo dues will be.

  • They look pretty nice, but some of the floor plans have the washer dryer right in the entrance as soon as you walk in. That seems like a really odd choice. Why not put the W/D in the bedroom closet or in the hallway leading to the bedroom?

  • Im assuming the 300k units are actually the set asides for the affordable required units. Most likely jr one bedrooms in less than ideal locations in the building. But still a gerat price. Although I don’t think you can sell them for market rate for at least 20 years.

  • Is anyone else AMAZED that this area (right by the 9:30 Club) is now being called “North Shaw”?

  • As much as I love the 9:30 Club, I sure as hell don’t want to live right next to it.
