From Parking Lot to “a full-floor penthouse with direct private elevator access, a 600 square foot private terrace” coming to 14th and W St, NW

14th and W St, NW

From a press release:

“Homebuyers in the Nation’s capital will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to “Own Fourteenth Street” as Urban Pace begins sales at Lumen, the first new condominium development on 14th Street in five years. Lumen’s 18 elegantly appointed residences, delivering in early 2016, will provide direct access to one of the city’s most vibrant entertainment and commercial hubs. One fortunate buyer will enjoy a full-floor penthouse with direct private elevator access, a 600 square foot private terrace, and expansive southern views. Prices will range from the $500,000s to over $1 million.

Located at 2200 14th Street, NW at the intersection of 14th and W Streets, NW, Lumen will offer six one-bedroom, 11 two-bedroom residences, and the spectacular 1,540 square foot penthouse. “It is very rare to have this level of finishes and layout in this location, and rarer still to offer a penthouse with private elevator access,” said Urban Pace President Lynn Hackney. “Lumen will allow residents to take ownership of everything that 14th Street is and has to offer.”

Designed by locally based VestaNova Architecture, Lumen will be distinguished by floor-to-ceiling southern-facing windows, Electrolux Energy Star® qualified appliances (Viking in the penthouse), Moen and Kohler fixtures, white quartz countertops, Elfa storage systems, modern white full overlay cabinetry, and white oak hardwood flooring. Most of the homes will have private outdoor terraces or balconies.

Like other Community Three developments, Lumen provides an extensive array of sustainable features such as a green roof, low-E windows and doors, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and high-efficiency lighting and HVAC systems. UIP General Contracting, Inc. is employing a variety of resource-conserving construction practices including local materials sourcing, recycling and salvaging construction waste and demolition debris, and more.

And then there’s the irreplaceable location. The dizzying array of entertainment, shopping, and dining destinations just outside Lumen’s door includes Kapnos and G by Mike Isabella, Pearl Dive, Ted’s Bulletin, Le Diplomate, Barcelona, Lupo Verde , Policy, Studio and Source Theaters, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Room & Board, and Shinola, to name a few.

Having achieved record sell-out pace for his most recent condominium project, Centrie, Grant Epstein of Community Three Development is excited to “fill the gap” that previously existed on the northwest corner of 14th and W Streets. Lumen incorporates the façade of a restored two-story commercial townhouse. The remainder of the site had been used as a parking lot for the past 50 years.”

  • Does “dizzying array of entertainment” mean that each unit is literally inches away from Mova? Good lucking getting any sleep in this building.

  • Once in a lifetime, every five years! Fuck off.

  • Seems nice enough, but I’d want to look into what could be built on the south side of W Street before I dropped $1M on those ‘expansive southern views’.

    • Good point!

      • Thanks to DC’s overly protective regulatory structure, you really can’t sell a gas station, so that gas station should be there pretty much forever.
        That being said, that means you’ll just have gas station views.

        • sure you can. if you couldn’t, then they wouldn’t be building condos on top of what used to be an exxon station in adams morgan

  • Anonynon

    Those pent house views overlook the Valero Gas station (Fast Gormet), funny how they don’t show that part. Although the building looks very nice! Its right next to a gas station…people coming in and out making noise all night long. Not my cup o’tea

  • I would LOVE that penthouse — if I could afford it. My dream’s always been lots of french doors from my main living area opening up onto an expansive patio. I’ve never liked the idea of roof decks as it seems a chore to climb a flight of stairs to go outside. I know I wouldn’t use it such a roof deck much. But with all those windows.doors opening up from the kitchen/living room to that terrace, I’d be in heaven. (And at that urban corner there’s enough traffic, pedestrians, shoppers, restaurant/bar goers that “people coming in and out making noise all night long” from the gas station isn’t going to make any difference, as Anon 5:29 suggested.)

  • Is there garage parking? If not, total deal breaker on the penthouse.
