New Rentals – KENYON STREET FLATS – Now For Lease, Take a Tour Inside

715 Kenyon Street, NW

I’ve been dying to see how this new building turned out. From their website:


BRAND NEW – six unit apartment building in Columbia Heights
4 Two-bedroom/two-bath and
2 Three-bedroom/two-bath residences”

You can see what the units look like inside here.

I was able to get a couple of prices:

UNIT #3 2BR/2BA $2,550/mo
UNIT #4 3BR/2BA $3,550/mo
Parking $85/month

There is an open house Thursday 6-8pm.


  • I dig the exterior. Not my personal style, but I appreciate having something unique that looks well executed.

    My ex-bf use to live in the house that previously occupied this lot. It was a smart move to demo that place and start anew. It was *gross*.

    Seems pretty pricey, but I guess it is brand new.

    I was just noticing this building earlier today while driving on Georgia Avenue — I didn’t realize the units were just now coming available.
    I wouldn’t be so keen on the building design if it were plunked in the middle of a bunch of rowhouses, but it looks MUCH better than the garden-style apartment building on the one side or the decrepit buildings (I think an extension of Morgan’s Seafood?) on the other.

      Good Lord, what might be living at the Morgan’s building is scary. Also, how is it not condemned by now?

      One of those decrepit buildings is an apt building now (that I happen to live in). It looks pretty shitty still from the outside, but inside the units are all renovated with granite, stainless, hardwood floors, etc. and I was one of the first tenants to sign a lease so I got a pretty ridiculous deal considering the area in what is basically a new apartment. I figured I can put up with a building that looks shady from the outside for a while…plus probably less of a chance we get robbed that way.

    Are those prices legit? I really have no idea about the rental market – is that realistic for a 3 BR?

    • MaybeAPerson

      Those prices are actually pretty good for brand new units.

        I agree…I was almost going to say that they’re much lower than I expected. You’d pay $3500 for a two bedroom a few blocks west.

    Those are really nice units! They clearly spent a bit more money to put in slightly higher-quality finishes, which makes a big difference.
