    LOL. I do wish my studio had a layout like this, but 1850 plus utilities is insane for something ~ 530 sq ft at that location.

    • AJ

      For some reason the ad doesn’t say it, but all utilities but electric and cable/internet are included. I’ve found my electric to be super cheap (generally ~$35 in a larger apartment in the building) and they’re wired for RCN.

      Still a tough pill to swallow, I agree – similar units on lower floors are more affordable.

      • Hill Denizen

        But electric and cable/internet are usually the biggest expenses. My electric for a small basement studio runs $50 in the summer to $120 in the winter, but I have electric heat. Cable and internet easily runs at least $100, but usually more.

        • AJ

          Sorry if it wasn’t clear – I currently live in this building. Heat is gas-based and I didn’t once have to turn it on this winter (hot water pipes running behind the walls have kept the apartment plenty warm even on our few truly cold days/nights), so electric covers the single window AC unit, food storage, lights, and laundry. Pay $40-50/month for Internet and cover your TV needs with Netflix, etc., and you can keep your total utilities cost under $100/month.

      • Leeran

        That would save you a bit… thanks!

  • anon

    This seems overpriced by maybe $100. That price edges into one bedroom territory, so I’d expect a studio to at least have a separate sleeping alcove. Also it’s a long-ish walk from there to the metro or the (mediocre, IMO) shops and restaurants of Woodley park (although they are getting better, yay Nando’s).

    • JohnH

      “best studio in the building” is like “best job in the White House” (and yes, I’ve lived the studio life before)

    • Michael Pierce

      It’s a 5–10 minute walk to the Metro, FYI.

    • Reality

      I pay less for a 1-bedroom in the neighborhood. Closer to metro, too. The price is very steep.

  • k8

    It’s definitely a bit steep in terms of rent, but I’m actually rather impressed by the amenities. Washer/drier and dishwasher in-unit aren’t easy to find in D.C., unless it’s one of those super new “luxury” buildings.

    • JohnH

      They’re all luxury buildings! ha yes, it’s not common to find a combo washer/dryer, let alone an actual full size-ish washer/dryer in a studio.

      • k8

        Ugh, I know. Just once, I’d like to see a new apartment complex advertised as “sensible and livable, even if you’re not a millionaire or a trust-fund kid.” Instead it’s all “Coming soon: luxury condos.” How many luxury buildings do we need?

  • skaballet

    That seems a bit high. My place is a Jr 1 bed about the same sq footage and is $1600. Granted, it doesn’t have washer/dryer in unit, roof deck or gym. But it does have separate sleeping space and is south of the bridge on Conn which IMO is better location.

  • Tony

    HAHAHAHA This is the most absurd rental price I have ever seen.

  • Reality

    That price is outrageous
