    That’s a nice building (though not Class A), but $1595 for a studio is insane. I’m paying $1158 for mine and I’m less than a mile away.

      A mile in which direction — north?
      There’s a big difference between being 2 blocks to the Columbia Heights Metro and being a mile plus two blocks to the Columbia Heights Metro.

      • Anon Spock

        Yea, the proximity to metro premium is huge.

    I toured this building too and thought it was nice for it’s age, felt large for a studio, and had off street parking but didn’t end up signing here. Studios were priced around $1460-1495 last August. The upper floors had nice views as well. You can find more affordable studios (~$100-200less) in same neighborhood at Park Regent (Park @ 17th) 1 block away, Newton Towers (Netwon @14th) and Twin Oaks 14th @Randolph to name a few.

      Yes, this. I paid $1375 now for a corner studio at Park Regent, up from $1336 3.5 years ago when I moved in. My studio is smaller and further from the metro but the extra $200 is the difference between affordable and not.

      • Rosette

        That sounds about right. $200 savings makes all the difference. Park Regent is also rent controlled but I think most of the newer units are up to market by now. I forget what the legal max % increase per year is.

    Lord, I do not miss renting in DC. Has it gotten this expensive? I feel like you should be able to get a one bedroom for this? It makes me thankful for the more affordable rental market in Toronto.

    They should start converting to carpet-free as well if they want this amount of rent.

    • textdoc

      The rent would be even more if it weren’t carpeted.

        Probably hiding a very worn parquet floor.

    The rent at this place appears to have gone up a lot in the past couple of years. My old roommate moved to a studio on the top floor of this building when he moved out of my place in March of 2015 and his rent was something like $1325 or $1375.

    • former resident

      Yeah, I paid $150 more per month for a 1-bedroom on the top floor when I lived here (11/2014-11/2015). Was recently renovated too (no carpet). I think studios were $1350-1400/month.

      Well managed building. Also under rent control. I had no complaints. Only moved out because I bought my own place.

      • FridayGirl

        This is good to know for future reference (even if the rent is Too Damn High). Thanks!

  • AB

    We live here, in one of the few 1 bedrooms. It’s a great building, very well managed. Highly recommend.
