    I could’ve sworn that there had been a PoPville posting about this very same space a couple of years ago… but my Google-fu is failing to find it.

    • There’s definitely been a rental posted from this building in the past.

    It’s actually not as bad as I thought it would be.

    This OWNER or AGENT is way too TEPID. He or she NEEDS to show some ENTHUSIASM about this STEAL! Use UPPERCASE LETTERS, multiple gushy ADJECTIVES (like “HOT!”), and RANDOM CAPITALIZATION (“bath & Beautiful Hardwood floors”). Gotta HUSTLE to be a DC landlord!

    It looks lovely, but having once lived in a building above a restaurant (and I was a few floors up, not right above it), never again. Vermin travel.

    “HOT HOT HOT”, makes me skeptical of the listing

    chef’s kitchen? puh-lease

    I actually looked at this unit (or one in the same building) in 2010 when it was renting for $1400. Its nice to see that the rent hasn’t sky rocketed like everywhere else.

    Decided not to live there because of the busy intersection and retail below. If I’m remembering correctly, the retail below also recently closed, so who knows what will be there in the future.

      I walked by last week and they were doing construction work in the space downstairs, so something new may be coming.
