    I looked at this place a few years ago. The apartment was nice, but the laundry facilities were not adequate for a building of it’s size/prce. They also charged an enormous amount for pet rent/pet deposit.

    There’s nothing festive about that block of 18th. It’s about as un-festive as you can get.

    Seems about $100 overpriced unless the Dupont neighborhood is more desirable than 14th ST/U st corridor nowadays. I know Dupont used to be very desirable but seems like 14th ST, U St area is where more young professionals (who probably will live in the studio) want to be.

      I think 14/u still wins the popularity contest. Shaw likely more so.

    Prospective tenants, watch out: this building, and all of Equity Residential’s buildings, skirt rent control regulations with their abuse of concessions. After a year, they’ll send you a renewal offer much higher than the increase allowed by DCRA, and if you want to go month-to-month, they’ll threaten to charge you the pre-concession price, which is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of $3000 for this unit.

      Yes, that was my experience too.

      Spot on. They pulled this on me, too. Fine building with nice staff, but holy cow, Equity is an incredibly scummy company. They’ve basically single-handedly created a loophole and are abusing the rent control system.
