    Ive always liked this building when Ive passed, but my GOODNESS GRACIOUS that’s a lot of money for a condo.

    Was going to say it was overpriced by $500 at least, but then I got to that photo of the private roof deck.

    Floor to ceiling windows make no sense at all. Unless you buy (very expensive) bottom-up shades, you either have your entire life on view to the world, or you pull the shades/curtains and have no view at all.

      Bottom-up shades are not expensive at all. I got mine for less than $100 for a double window that is almost 8 feet high. I could have even had it motorized for another $50. Blinds to go has come a long way, baby!

      People who can afford 4K in rent won’t have any trouble paying for fancy blinds.

      Depends on the location and orientation of the windows. That said, I’d rather have light and openness that I can control, vs. less light and less openness that I can’t control. Bottom-up shades aren’t expensive, neither are sheers and all manner of other window treatments, tension-rods, etc. A person living here should be able to afford decent window treatments. After living in so many DC houses that are long and deep like a trailer with windows on the short end, natural light is something that is a must for me. But to each his/her own.

        Depending on which direction they face, big windows can also make it super hot in the morning/afternoon. I’ve been enticed by them in the past and ended up having the shades drawn all day to avoid roasting. (Also, who buys custom shades for a rental?) I also lived in a “warehouse conversion” unit once where not only did I roast in the spring/summer, but ice formed on the INSIDES of the windows in winter. Obviously a shoddy renovation (it was a condo that I was renting) but still cost a pretty penny to rent!
