In addition to being sort of close to Nats Stadium and related development, as well as the already developed area around the SW Metro (DC Gov offices, Safeway, restaurants), there are major changes planned for this part of the city. Just like when Target in Columbia Heights was a giant fenced space for several years, people seem to wait to jump on the real estate until tangible signs of the development show up.
Although there are a number of cooperatively owned buildings in SW, this unit is condo ownership. Yes, the fee is relatively high at over $600/month, and no, because it is not a co-op, that does not include taxes. The fee includes utilities, a 24 hour front desk person, as well as pool maintenance.
There are currently 22 active listings for sale in the waterfront area of SW DC, ranging from $164,900 for a studio to $561,500. for a 3 bedroom condo townhome (there is also a house being offered as a development opportunity at $975,000.)
The listing agent was Damon Downing of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. The buyer was represented by Lee Wells of Central Properties, LLC.
