14th and W St, NW
From a press release:
“Homebuyers in the Nation’s capital will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to “Own Fourteenth Street” as Urban Pace begins sales at Lumen, the first new condominium development on 14th Street in five years. Lumen’s 18 elegantly appointed residences, delivering in early 2016, will provide direct access to one of the city’s most vibrant entertainment and commercial hubs. One fortunate buyer will enjoy a full-floor penthouse with direct private elevator access, a 600 square foot private terrace, and expansive southern views. Prices will range from the $500,000s to over $1 million.

Located at 2200 14th Street, NW at the intersection of 14th and W Streets, NW, Lumen will offer six one-bedroom, 11 two-bedroom residences, and the spectacular 1,540 square foot penthouse. “It is very rare to have this level of finishes and layout in this location, and rarer still to offer a penthouse with private elevator access,” said Urban Pace President Lynn Hackney. “Lumen will allow residents to take ownership of everything that 14th Street is and has to offer.”
Designed by locally based VestaNova Architecture, Lumen will be distinguished by floor-to-ceiling southern-facing windows, Electrolux Energy Star® qualified appliances (Viking in the penthouse), Moen and Kohler fixtures, white quartz countertops, Elfa storage systems, modern white full overlay cabinetry, and white oak hardwood flooring. Most of the homes will have private outdoor terraces or balconies.
Like other Community Three developments, Lumen provides an extensive array of sustainable features such as a green roof, low-E windows and doors, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and high-efficiency lighting and HVAC systems. UIP General Contracting, Inc. is employing a variety of resource-conserving construction practices including local materials sourcing, recycling and salvaging construction waste and demolition debris, and more.
And then there’s the irreplaceable location. The dizzying array of entertainment, shopping, and dining destinations just outside Lumen’s door includes Kapnos and G by Mike Isabella, Pearl Dive, Ted’s Bulletin, Le Diplomate, Barcelona, Lupo Verde , Policy, Studio and Source Theaters, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Room & Board, and Shinola, to name a few.
Having achieved record sell-out pace for his most recent condominium project, Centrie, Grant Epstein of Community Three Development is excited to “fill the gap” that previously existed on the northwest corner of 14th and W Streets. Lumen incorporates the façade of a restored two-story commercial townhouse. The remainder of the site had been used as a parking lot for the past 50 years.”
