  • A 2-bed with those amenities, a block from the metro, at that price? Deal.

    • I used to live accross the street and still live in the area. I think it’s a good location, PLUS it’s a little less than 1/2 mile to the Capitol South metro. It was so much easier to walk to CS and catch the train I needed than transfer. Can’t say much about the building other than it is, not attractive.
      The included parking is a MUST if you have a car, there are two buildings beings completed and maybe 4 more under way basically on the same block.

    looks nice and reasonable price. What a shame though, that building already looks ‘dated’ IMO. That being said its probably way nicer than what was there before it (if anything).

    • It was dated-looking the day it was built. It looks a lot like a building built in my hometown in the ’80s, and that building wasn’t considered anything special or avant-garde when it opened.

    • As opposed to the instantly dated look alike buildings going up now?

      I agree this one just looks particularly bad. Like the set back on the one side, it just looks silly. Its a shame we can’t figure out a way to create spaces instead of these monstrosities that are found down near the ball park, NoMA and parts of Dupont.

  • Friends had a 1BR unit in that building a few years ago. It was SUPER tiny. This one looks tiny too.

  • Trust me as someone who almost bought a co-op in this unit when it was brand new in 2006, it is a rather cheaply-built building. In order to be the first completed high-rise near the then in-planning Nationals Park, the developers cut a lot of corners (such as cheap fixtures and thin drywall) to get it done early. Capitol Hill Tower is not a buy…also I agree with the prior poster who says the bedrooms are tiny—good luck fitting a queen size mattress with any other furniture in those bedrooms.

  • Listing says 900Sq ft, which is not bad for a newer 2BR in DC. So the building looks blah – would there were more blah buildings that non-rich people could afford.
