I am currently in Park Place at the moment and have found RIW a good potential alternative. The renewal lease terms have rent going up significantly in Petworth and have prompted me to look for alternatives. When I spoke with the leasing agent there, she mentioned how there have been numerous people moving into RIW from Park Place. It could’ve been a marketing line but it seems plausible because RIW provides many, if not more, benefits than Park Place. However, my only concern is being farther away from areas like Columbia Heights and U Street that have lots of restaurants, shops and bars. The pro is definitely the apt and the metro but the con is being further away from more developed areas. I plan to take a tour tommorrow. Hoping it is a good match!
