    Not a ton of light and sort of a blah design, but this seems like a really, really good deal for someone who wants to live right downtown. This is on the cheaper end of 1 bedrooms that can be found in most parts of the city.

    I guess if you live in Penn Quarter you don’t cook at home.
    And for such massive windows, why does it seem so dark in there?

      It would appear that the windows look out on the building right smack next door, which looks like it’s so close that you could reach out your window and stroke the bricks!

        It also appears to be on the ground floor. Depressing – lack of natural light, and fluorescent lights in the kitchen – never want to have to live in such a place.

        You better stay away from my exposed brick walls with that language of yours!

    I would pay money to NOT live across from the MLK library, and incidents like this from last month:

      The MLK Library across the street will be closing in the not-too-distant future for major renovations. I would want to get more information about how this is going to affect life on that block before I signed a lease. As it is now, it’s a daily sh*tshow in front of the Library because that’s the homeless shelter drop-off point. No one yet knows where people will go when the Library closes.

    The darkness is a good critique of the photos, but I doubt it’s a good critique of the apartment. Once you buy some lamps and furniture I don’t think this place will look foreboding. People *think* they want natural light in their apartments because it looks so great at the open house but I’m always amazed by how many people live day-to-day with their blinds completely drawn… No doubt some people genuinely can’t live without their natural light, but there’s many people who mistakenly believe it’s their priority and then spend thousands and thousands of dollars a year for views that they leave blocked by curtains.

    Looks positively torture chamber-ish!

    I wonder if this was one of the affordable (highly subsidized) units that was sold to artists earning between 50% and 80% of the area median income, and whether there are limitations on renting or selling the units.
