    There was just a studio in Mt Vernon Sq featured under this price, so this is ambitious.

    decent sized unit
    my boy lives in one exactly like this in the same building where sliding doors were installed to section the bedroom portion off and it works out pretty well
    much prefer the faux 1br over a studio layout

  • DM

    I think the price is driven by the fact that this is one of those ludicrous buildings in Southwest that have an ~$800 co-op fee, rather than the price for a market rental. You can get a far more desirable neighborhood for that price than L’Enfant Plaza/Waterfront by the freeway.

      The condo fee for a recently sold 1BR in this exact building was $344/month, which means that the fee for this studio is probably less. There are other buildings in SW with high fees, but this is not one of them.

      I live in this building, for a studio, the condo fee is $325. And that includes all utilities, gym access, pool, etc. Owner is factoring that in. I will say, the condo across from me is about 100 square feet bigger and went for $1600 as a rental. So I’d say this is overpriced by about $150. But someone will take it.

  • Leeran

    Yeah, this is over market. I signed a lease in 2015 for a similar unit a few blocks away for $300 less a month.

    Those decorative screens over parts of the balconies are a nice-looking feature from the outside, but I feel like they’d drive me crazy if I lived in an apartment with one. It would make the place feel a little claustrophobic, like I was living in a cage.

    • anonymous

      My thoughts exactly on that concrete screen.

  • anonymous

    This looks nicely redone for these buildings, with some exceptions. Can’t do anything about the concrete screen or heating unit (except maybe build a box to hide that unit, which would help a lot) – but really, if you are going to put this much into redoing a place, how hard is it to add wood floor boards, rather than this ugly, filth-catching carpeting? Doesn’t matter, I wouldn’t live in a place with the concrete screen outside anyway – too bunker-like.

    • domrep

      The carpet holds up pretty well.

      • anonymous

        hold dust, dirt, animal dander and worse from pets, dust mites, other insects and their leavings, and mold quite well, you mean.

  • TX2DC

    I think one should expect a W/D in the unit when paying $1700 for a studio in a so-so location. Not a good deal, IMHO.

  • Kate

    You can get a nice one bedroom in that neighborhood for $1,600, or a larger studio in a more desirable neighborhood (Navy Yard, Mt. Vernon Triangle). Overpriced by $200.
