    Lovely staging does not make up for the fact that it backs up to the train tracks.

    Good size for the price, great condo fee. I lived next to the train tracks in NoMa and I hated it. You can never leave your windows open. I’m sure someone won’t mind.

    When are people going to understand you can’t just say literally to emphasize any point you feel like making. This headline indicates that Brookland has a 2 block radius from this place.

      Never, if Joe Biden has anything to do with it.

      The definition of “literally” has *literally* been changed so that it now also means “figuratively.”

        This is still a hotly debated point.

        This ruins the credibility of Merriam-Webster

    I live down the street from these…a few things I’ve noticed:
    (a) they are built directly next to the train (both CSX and metro) tracks
    (b) went up really fast and extremely cheaply
    (c) are connected to a building that is vacant and also hideous. Will it be apartments, offices, what? And that building was there before these were built.
    (d) are kitty corner to that weird fenced in lot across the street from the metro.

    Went past these coming back from Right Proper last week. I don’t know that I’d call it a bad deal, but yeah…the trains are pretty heavy duty right there. Metro is one thing, but some of those CSX trains just thunder through. Then again, at 1600 square feet for $600k, you could probably consider that priced in. The new condos at 12th and Jackson have sold for $430-$500/sq ft depending on the unit, whereas this one’s only $370/sq ft.

      Dog’s assessment is spot on. While I would not be excited for these, they are a fair price compared to what other new construction is going for in the neighborhood.

    I’ve been inside these condos. They feel like cheap prefab construction, and the bedrooms are pretty small. But – close to the brewery!

    We bought one of these units in April and we are SO happy with it! The builders didn’t do a perfect job (some units have had issues with leaks or appliances not being properly installed), but the developer has, so far, attended to anything and everything at the drop of a hat. We’re very happy we were able to get a 3 BR home in the District that we can afford and is close to the metro… so, Good Deal in my opinion!

    RE the train tracks, I will say that is something the developer 100% did NOT skimp on: sound proofing! Yes, you need to accept there’s some noise if the windows are open or you’re outside, but if the windows are shut we can’t even hear the trains going past. They did a great job, there! Having lived in several other neighborhoods (AdMo, Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, Woodley and Edgewood), I would rank our overall quality of life here as being the best yet.

    Hope it helps :)
