A number of people have written me about this condo project located at 3318 Georgia Avenue. I was finally able to check it out this weekend. My first impression is that I’m super psyched it was built on this section of Georgia. I really think this a good sign towards the revitalization of Georgia Ave. The building itself is quite nice. It is brand new construction and seemed to be very solid not just a quick rehab. It’s a rather small building with only 12 units. There is a pretty sweet roof deck that was a bit spartan but could be a great spot to bbq and read a book in the future. The units are split between one bedrooms and two bedrooms. The first one bedroom I saw was a bit disappointing. It was rather on the small side. Fortunately the two bedroom I saw was phenomenal. It had a huge row of windows that I imagine would flood the room with light. The kitchens are nice and open and the ceiling are really high. There are some other nice details as well like wrought iron handrails in the main staircase. It’s the little touches like that which, I really thought were cool.
I’m not quite sure how I feel about the location. It’s right near Lamont Street which means it is a bit of a walk to the Petworth or Columbia Heights metros. I do, however, think that this section of Georgia will continue to get better and better. It seems like a perfect spot for some good restaurants etc. Time will tell I suppose.
The one bedrooms I saw range from $234,900 to $289,900 with $208 condo fees. The two bedrooms were $459,900 or $469,000 with condo fees of $300 (and they come with one parking space). You can find more information at their Web site Sidney on the avenue.
I really like the look of the building and the condos themselves were among the nicer I’ve seen. I think the success of this building is going to depend a lot upon the improvements along Georgia Ave. But it seems like the city has made a significant investment in Georgia Ave. so it’s hard to imagine how vibrant it will be in a few years. What do you think about this location?
