      Swagger jacking much? ;-)

        Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

          Thought the same thing. That will forever be the Hinkley Hilton.

            Sweet URL from PoP.

    Did you mean “pheasants”? Because even peasants need their space!

    The 1br seem reasonable. The apt next door to mine is a terrace level, about 120 sq feet smaller, no amenities, and is leased for about $2,400

      Surprisingly good, especially with access to those rooftop views.

      • los

        Apparently there’s an error with the listing. The quoted price is for a 500sq ft unit, so yeah…hmm. no way I would be paying that much

        • anon

          Yeah, that seemed cheap to me for 900 sq feet for luxury one-bedrooms in DC – definitely would be well over 3K.

      $2,760 is reasonable for a 1 bedroom? I’m sorry. That is insane. You would need a minimum 6 figure salary to afford that rent… which if you make that much you could easily purchase a condo. Crazy.

      • prgkmr

        It is insane but median salary in DC is like $80k, so a six figure salary is probably pretty attainable.

  • V

    Concierge service into which no effort is put and you receive something other than requested.

  • If that square footage measurement is correct, that’s a decent deal on the 1 bedroom–I would be surprised if it’s actually that big, however.

  • Bloomy

    It’s about time – we needed some nice housing options in this city.

  • Oh my god, a new building in DC that isn’t a square. I’m speechless.

    • Anon

      To be fair, they had few other options here in terms of maximizing useable space.

      • To be fair, there are plenty of other crowded urban cities that still have cool buildings.

        • Dave

          …where you can build higher than 10-12 stories, which is the obvious difference in DC.

          • Anon

            Where you’ll still get square if that will make the developer the most money

        • Anon

          Sure – nobody is disputing that Justin. Not sure what point you’re making, but it seems very tangential to mine.

    • shepherder

      man, you must hate paris, where everything looks the same.

  • MRD

    I was confused about the address because that’s the corner where the Washington Hilton is. Then I looked at Google street view and realized that The Hepburn is actually at the corner of Florida and T.

    I guess I can understand the cachet difference between Florida and Connecticut…

    • anonymous

      It’s on the Hilton property, right in front of the hotel. They’re using the same official address, with residential entrances off of Florida/T by the garage (I’m guessing). I think “officially” being on that side of Connecticut might allow them to say it’s in Dupont or Kalorama rather than Adams Morgan, too.

  • Emily

    On their website it says a 894 square foot one-bedroom goes for $3900 (and 895 square feet for $4300). If this is some sort of move in special, I’m assuming rates would return to the hefty price the second year.


    • S

      Yes, the PoPville listing is wrong. The $2760 price listed is for the smallest 1BR units, which run just over 500 sq ft. You can get units closer to 850 sq ft for $3400 or so if I recall correctly (I looked at a few units there a couple weeks ago).

      • For the record that’s a pull from MRIS hopefully it gets fixed and it’ll fix in the real estate section automatically too – thanks!

  • Sweetness

    I was going to say something snarky, but this place at least seems to offer luxury at luxury prices, unlike most crappy basements at luxury prices.

  • P. Lecheval

    The Hepburn? Should’ve been called The Hinckley.

  • Former DC Resident

    I had such high hopes for the interior of this building. It looks rather bland and unexciting. It definitely could have capitalized much more off of the views and all that glass. It looks like a hotel, to me…not luxury apartments.

    • anon

      It’s supposed to look like a hotel. I think they are hoping for short-term foreign renters.

  • wpk_dc

    I love it! And I’d move here in a minute if I were in the market for such a huge rental. Wondering how big the market is for 3 BR 3 BA apartments in DC? Realtors?

    • Le Realtor

      Big with diplomats. Not out of reach of many since there are no income taxes (or any taxes to pay)

  • anon

    I love that the Hepburn website’s page of places in the neighborhood includes Buca di Beppo, which is pretty much on the 9th circle of restaurant hell. It’s constantly filled with busloads of clueless tourists.
