Earlier in the week a reader mentioned the Pierce School lofts at 14th and Maryland Ave, NE. Rent.com says:

True New York Style Loft Apartment Now For Rent…Live In An Old School…1,115 Square Feet of Live/Work Space…. By their very definition, lofts are former commercial spaces that have been adapted for residential use and living/work environments. Pierce School Lofts are TRUE NY Style lofts just like you have seen in many popular movies. These lofts vary in size ranging from 1,115 sq. ft. to just over 2,200 total sq ft of living/work space. The 14′ ceilings and enormous windows that are each 8′ tall and 4′ wide really let the light in to create a vast, open and airy feel unlike any other traditional apartment. Many of the remnants from the school’s history still exist within each of the units including the original 110 year old hardwood floors, chalkboards, school clock, even the American flag. Evolve has added state-of-the-art kitchens within each of the units that include stainless steel appliances with a dishwasher, built-in microwave, side-by-side refrigerator, electric self-cleaning range and a front loading washer / dryer. The countertops are made of 3/4″ thick white carera marble that is reminiscent of the 1893 period in which the school was built.

The old cloakrooms of the school have now been converted into a master bathroom for each of the loft apartments. This new bathroom comes with a built-in ceramic tiled shower, claw foot soaking tub, built-in urinal and dual vanity with vessel sinks to give each bathroom an industrial / utilitarian look and feel that often makes guests stop and wonder if these bathrooms were original to the old school.

In addition to a unique living experience, Pierce School Lofts offers rich amenities that consumers in the highly competitive DC Rental market are looking for including a 38,000 gallon in-ground swimming pool, spa, and a professional gym. Pierce School Lofts have been upgraded with the latest in wireless Internet technology provided by DC Access so that residents can surf the net in their apartments or while sipping a drink by the pool.
