  • And this location is about 1000 times better than yesterday’s more expensive studio rental.

  • Is this a legitimate listing? A lack of interior photos doesn’t inspire confidence in the legitimacy of the rental.

      It’s so spacious mere pictures couldn’t contain it!

    • Genuine question: Do non legitimate listings happen often? How can you spot them?

      • I’ve only encountered one fake ad. The advertised rent was way below what you would expect to pay for the area. And the “landlord” was really pushy, demanding that I complete an application before agreeing to give me a tour. He was also asking for a lot of personal information, which you’re never asked to provide that early in the process.. His persistence and aggressiveness creeped me out, so I stopped responding. A few weeks later, I saw an identical unit advertised for double what the fake ad was asking.

        Yes. I was recently looking for a new place and saw fake ads on Craigslist DAILY – you can tell they are fake because the listing will be for a 750 sq ft 1 bedroom in Dupont for like $900/month, for example, and all the pics will look like they were pulled from a model home ad. If you actually send one of these suspicious ads an email (which I admittedly have done, back in like 2008 when I first moved to DC and didn’t know any better), they’ll give you a BS story about how they are overseas for work and will need you to send a money order/certified check/etc

  • What a random number. Why not just say $1575 or $1600 and be done with it?

    • DC has rent control laws. They could be raising it the maximum allowed amount, and this is what they’re getting.

  • I used to live in this building. The studios are actually pretty decently sized. Mine had a little dressing room that I crammed a twin bed into, and a walk-in closet that I still miss. Pretty nice building, too — the roof deck is a very nice perk.

  • I lived in this building in the late 1990s in a studio on the 8th floor as a matter of fact…the rent was $700/mo all in. Great building and great location just shocked at price.
