  • I was really worried there for a minute that there would only be 3 Juliette balconies, but was instantly relieved when they mentioned 4.

  • Needs more street parking.

  • Damn. When I looked at a 2BR unit in this building years ago, it was about $1,000 less per month. I can’t imagine living there now, unless I suddenly got the urge to hang out with tourists and large groups of rambunctious teenagers.

    • This is one of the few locations that is an easy walk to the hill and K street. Ideal for dedicated pedestrians. It is also one of the few areas with a healthy mix of tourists, office workers, local residents, hockey fans, basketball fans, moviegoers and other steady nightlife. A little too urban for the Popville dream of rowhouse living, but easily some of the highest $/sq ft in the area.

      • It has a lot of amenities but it isn’t very residential and therefore doesn’t have much of a community or neighborhood feel. You can be both urban and residential.

  • Besides the amenities (pool, grills, rooftop deck, courtyard, gym, media room) it is surrounded by great restaurants, the mall is a couple blocks away, theaters (both E Street and Gallery Place), Verizon Center, Building Museum, Portrait Gallery, and access to two Metro stops seems to be a pretty good location. I think if you avoid Gallery Place/China Town on Friday and Saturday nights, Penn Quarter doesn’t seem to be a problem.
