    The building name (“Varsity on K”) and the fact that it’s fully furnished makes me wonder if it’s trying to market itself as an alternative to dorms.
    But $3,460 a month for a one-bedroom?!?

  • Mittens

    Perfect for GWU students spending daddy’s money!

    • Leeran

      Hmm. I went to GW on scholarship and even the wealthiest kids I knew weren’t dropping $3500/month on a one bedroom. Maybe they can find enough of them though…

  • PetworthGuy

    Properties like these target a multitude of buyers. Usually wealthy locals, wealthy students from abroad, and pied-à-terre’s for foreign professionals who travel here frequently. A colleague of mine just sold a penthouse unit in a luxury condo property for $4M to a man from Qatar to let his two sons stay in while they attend Georgetown for 4 years. A 1 br unit was sold within the same building for $1M to an investor from China to stay in while he’s here once every two months. As unbelievable/frustrating as these situations might seem, they are not un-commmon for the luxury real estate market in DC.

      This is a rental, however — not a condo building, as far as I can tell.

  • Ross

    That game room looks like the set of a 90’s rap video.

  • Hill Denizen

    I thought the game room was the apartment, which would have kind of a unique vibe to it. It made me think of Logan’s Yale apartment in Gilmore Girls. But then I saw the actual apartment pictures and they look pretty generic.

  • Contessa of Cleveland Park

    That’s a heck of a price for an apartment that’s one square foot, according to the listing.

  • 10thSt

    Wait…this used to be a GWU dorm called “City Hall”. Marketed as all suites juniors and seniors. Prior to 2001 it was a hotel, maybe the Embassy Suites.

    • GWer

      Prior to 2001 it was the St James Hotel. When it was a dorm (City Hall) there were still interesting hotel paraphernalia, like guest phones in the lobby, those bronze carts you use for luggage, and all the rooms still had their hotel issue sofa, dinette, and TV table. Pretty interesting living in a dorm with a marble bathroom.

      • AMDCer

        Prior to that it was a Catholic girls school – I remember when that got torn down.
