    This is my old apartment. It’s no where near 550 sqft (closer to 350-400) and the managing company sucked. The location is awesome, but our energy bills were $300 for 4 months and utilities cost us on average $200. Super old building and VERY loud, as there’s no external insulation. They tried to screw us on the lease (after many issues with landlord and DC Housing) but ultimately relented so they wouldn’t be inspected again. The address is also 443 10th Street NE. So… yeah.

      I was just thinking to myself: “this looks hella small for 550 sq ft”.

        When we saw it in CL, we were moving to DC in a short timeline, and agreed to this place sight unseen. Then it was advertised at 750 sqft! We sold most of our furniture, put items in storage and STILL were cramped. Fine for one person, but for two people and a dog its way too small.

          Yeah I’ve been in similar circumstances before…I know how it goes. But it says a lot about the landlord that they would advertise this at 750 sq ft! (550 is bad enough)
