    Calling all DINKs! Calling all DINKs!

      Shhhh, not so loud. We can hear you just fine in the quiet of child-free awesomeness.

  • west_egg

    The only thing “stunning” about this is the price.

    What’s a “DINK?”

    • toofwis

      double income, no kids — plenty of money to overpay for an apt. like this

        I don’t think it’s overpaying. That’s the same price as the apartments across the street at 909 Capitol Yards, and it’s less than what the Parc Riverside is charging for a 2 bed/2bath. It’s really not that out of line with other neighborhoods, Navy Yard is getting popular (and not just for DINKS but I see lots of families with young kids too in my building)

  • What good are floor to ceiling windows when you have to either buy bottom-up shades (very expensive) or close them off completely to prevent everyone walking by on the street from seeing every bit of your entire life?

    • anonanon

      Bottom-up shades are not expensive at all. I got mine for under $100 for a floor-to-ceiling, double window. Love it. Because not everything out of my window is beatiful

      • JoDa

        Y’all mean top-down shades, but I hear you. I installed them in 4 normal-sized windows for $150 total (since my living room and bedroom windows look out on either my neighbor’s living room or bedroom or the alley, and I wanted the light and to see the sky, but some privacy when sleeping or sitting on my couch). Sure, they’re more expensive than generic miniblinds (I priced those out at Home Depot, and they would have been $100 for 4 windows, for the cheapest option), but not insanely expensive if you know how to measure and shop around.

    Great price for the square footage. Wouldn’t want to be that close to the street, but if you want a lot of space for not a lot of money, it’s a good deal.

    (and I say “not a lot of money” because apartments with similar square footage would be significantly more expensive elsewhere)

    • JoDa

      Yeah, 1375 ft2 is VERY big. Many rowhomes aren’t even that big, and those usually “waste” some space in stairs and passages that aren’t terribly usable. 1375 in a flat is huge.

    Again with the “gourmet kitchen” B.S. Aghhh!
