The featured unit is located in the Randolph Towers Condominium, which had been a rental building since the early 1930’s, that began selling as condo ownership in 2009. The sales website remains active so you can still see the floor plans, etc. The condo association includes the addresses 3900 and 3902 14th St NW, and the large building is situated between Randolph and Shepherd Streets NW.

The price point for these updated homes is attractive to buyers and there has been a good amount of sales activity so far in 2015. This is the 6th sale in Randolph Towers since the beginning of 2015 and there are currently 3 units under contract. There are no current actives listed.

With the exception of a 475 square foot studio that sold at $169,900., all of the one and two bedroom units sold this year priced in the $300,000’s. As recently as 2013, prices were trending in the low $200,000’s, and increased into the high $200,000’s in 2014.

The listing agent for this sale was Daniel McDade with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. Mark Rutstein with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer in this transaction.

  • That’s surprisingly reasonable. What am I missing? Is there something wrong with this building?

  • Scruffy looking stretch of 14th Street. Probably ok, but if you have friends with delicate sesibilities they may be putoff.

  • I live in this building and it’s actually pretty great. There are a lot of friendly people and the building management is working on a lot of upgrades from new grass and fencing to better interior decor. Plus three new restaurants have opened within two blocks and two more are on the way. The building was once a failed co-op, so the transition to condo helped keep the prices reasonable, especially given the size and the sunlight. Can’t wait to meet the new neighbors!
