  • Looks tiny even for an efficiency (the fridge outside the kitchen, for example). Absent the pool and what appear to be fairly good exercise facilities, the price would seem a little high. One plus of being a coop is that itthat the building probably isn’t filled with GW undergrads.

    • Definitely would not count on that. The apartment buildings in that area rent studios from $1400-2800/month depending on how nice of a building you’re talking. The Avenue (where studios start around $2800/month, according to their site) is FULL of GW undergrads. Don’t ever underestimate mommy and daddy’s money in that area haha!

      • Some parents buy townhouses/condos for their kids to live in for a few years during college, also. (source: I went to GWU and knew people who did this)

  • That sink and fridge are hilarious. It’s hard to tell if the fridge is tiny, or the rest of the apartment is oversized. How is it that so many of these units have a dozen photos and I still don’t know what the unit looks like?

  • I’ve lived in this building for 2 years and I’ve had a great experience. The units (esp kitchens) are small, but the location is phenomenal and I’ve enjoyed the perks (gym, pool. 24 hour doorman, courtyard with grills). The building does have some GW undergrads but mostly med or law students, young professionals, etc. I’m moving now to a bigger apartment and the extra space will be nice, but I will miss walking to work and sunbathing in the summer.

  • How is it that property managers are the worst photographers in the world?

  • Well, I dealt with mice and multiple bedbug scares (which included bagging all of my clothes and removing everything off the walls) while living in the building, so buyer beware.

  • I used to pay $650/mo for a similar unit in this building back in 1995.

  • Honestly it’s a great price for the area. I paid more than that for a studio unit in that neighborhood 6 years ago, and definitely did not have a pool or anything like that!

    • I think you were overpaying if you paid more than that 6 years ago, but that’s just my opinion :/

    • Yeah, but it was my first apartment here and I had to find it without actually being here. Plus I was an undergrad and had a week to find a place once I found out I wasn’t getting housing from GWU haha. $1650 for a studio was the standard rate in the building I rented in – being 20 and living in DC for the first time, by myself, not knowing a single person in the city, I took the first thing I found that looked like it was close to/on campus from Google Maps lol.
      Also I just checked, and that building now shows that studios start at $1745.
