This rental is located at 1550 11th Street, Northwest. The listing says:

“A collection of 38 new luxury apartments are now leasing in the vibrant Logan Circle neighborhood. Located just east of the booming 14th street corridor, the residences at HOLM are perfectly situated among all that city life has to offer.”


You can see more photos here.

This 1847 sq ft 2 bed/2 bath is going for $7,500/Mo.

    If I’m paying “f$#^ you”-level money for a place, it’s not gonna be $7500 to live on that corner.

    • LittleBluePenguin

      +1000! That price is insane.

  • condoer

    That price has to be a typo, right?

    • textdoc

      Wondering the same thing.
      And those kitchen cabinets already look out of date (at least to me).

    • Planner

      I thought maybe it was the price for the entire building – all 38 units!

  • kharr89

    This is a joke, right? Right?

  • Anon

    It looks to be one of the top-floor units with an outdoor space. It also seems like they’re counting the outdoor space into the listed sqft – no chance in hell the pictured apartment is actually 1,800 sqft.

    • FridayGirl

      Agreed. The rooms look real small, and as textdoc mentioned above, the kitchen isn’t particularly nice and my apartment that was built 4 years ago has a way nicer washer/dryer. Whoever rents this at that price is insane.

  • Hill Denizen

    $7500 and they couldn’t even afford to put in a kitchen island?

  • anon36

    Is this address right?

    • anon36

      Aw, it is, typo on my part

  • anon

    If they say it’s “luxury” enough times, I’m sure someone will believe them…

    The misaligned, non-sequential wood grain on the kitchen cabinets would drive me crazy. If you’re going to have horizontal grain, you better make sure those doors are cut sequentially. That’s just poor attention to detail right there.

  • houseintherear

    Ho. Ly. Crapoly. Them’s NYC prices!

  • Smittty

    That just can’t be right. They new condos at Atlantic Plumbing are half the price and just as nice, if not nicer.

    The photos seems to be for unit 301, a two bedroom/one bath apartment. The website, holmdc.com, does not seem to give rates or dimensions, although looking at the check availability link (which doesn’t work well for me), it seems that the two-bedroom/one bath units are renting for $3200 – $3350 and are “808+ square feet.”

      I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t just an excercise in bracketing. “Hey – look, we got a 50% off deal for a similar apartment that’s just slightly smaller and without the rooftop deck. Only $3,500!

  • Mamasan

    Every Diamond Cab driver just dropped over from laughter. Holy guacamole, $7500 for this view of the skate park, dog park and laundromat.

  • samanda_bynes

    …7500…what. you can get a luxury apartment ON U street for half-ish that.

  • Kevin

    $7500 hooooommyygaawwwdd

  • SilverSpringGal

    Are they sure that’s not the rental price for a 4-bedroom??

  • Rich

    The building went up in about 5 minutes (please no lectures on the virtues of “modern” wood construction) and it’s on a busy, noisy corner that was better suited for a cab company. Even if it looks better than the pics, this is just ridiculous,

  • 10thSt

    $4500 would have been too much. What a joke. Let’s watch how long it takes to rent out…word on the street is that there is still a unit in the Middle Finger on V St up for sale (after being rented out as an AirBnB by the developer against the other owners wishes).

  • Still Bitter

    I had a contract on this place before it was cancelled and converted into apartments. I’m still bitter from that whole ordeal, but really glad I didn’t end in this building. I found another place for $45k less and saving that much more money. Good luck trying to rent do $7500.

  • James W.

    Unless the mere existence of a private roof deck is worth $4,000 a month to you, then this thing is about $4,000 overpriced.

  • JSR

    Former DC person here, living in NYC for a couple of years now. My wife and I have this exact same apartment in the East Village, on Tompkins Sq Park, with a private roof deck with views of the park and midtown. We pay $6200/mo.

  • Wow, just moved from DC to San Francisco- Hayes Valley no less, and balked at $5,000 monthly rent that we pay here.
