The Bloomingdale neighborhood is located at the east edge of the NW quadrant of DC. Boundaries are defined by Florida Ave NW to the South, North Capitol Street to the East, Channing Street to the North (across from the McMillan Sand Filtration Development Site), and 2nd Street NW to the West.
In recent years, Bloomingdale has enthusiastically welcomed locally-owned restaurants and bars, including Red Hen, El Camino, Boundary Stone, Showtime, and several others. Besides the small pockets of commercial activity on Rhode Island Ave NW and North Capitol Street, Bloomingdale is comprised of primarily residential property and is known for its iconic Victorian row house architecture.
As an illustration of the change in density in the neighborhood, it is interesting to note that prior to 2002, there was one condo ownership building in Bloomingdale. The sales of 70 Rhode Island Ave NW, the first post-2000 condo conversion, began in December 2002. Less than fifteen years later, there are numerous condos, which range from large Victorian houses that have been divided into two or more units (like the subject property), to new construction or converted multi units. While the units in larger buildings tend to be flats, condos in converted houses are often bi-level duplexes with more than 1000 square feet of living space.
At the moment, there are five condos actively listed in Bloomingdale, ranging from $229,000. to $699,990. Sales of duplex condo units in the neighborhood over the past six months have ranged from $430,000. to $800,000.
The listing agents for this sale were Alex Venditti and Jill Patel with Compass. Seth Turner, also with Compass, represented the Buyer.
