The Whitman came to life in 2006, during a wave of development in Mount Vernon around the (then new) Convention Center. Large multi-unit high amenity residential buildings popped up in the area seemingly overnight and transformed the downtown Mass Avenue corridor.
Unit 712 is one of two large units with roof decks and two parking spaces to sell in the building in the past few weeks. Unit 714 sold for $1,299,000. These are the highest sales in the building ever. The next highest sale was for a unit on the 10th floor with over 1700 square feet, in 2009, at $990,000.
Seven figure condos are definitely becoming more of a thing in DC. For the same time period in 2013, there were 37 condo sales $1.2 Million and above, with incremental increases yearly in the numbers of luxury condo sales. Thus far in 2017, there have been 77 condos settled over $1.2 Million and above.
Who buys these units? It’s not always the case, but often, Buyers looking for condos (as opposed to houses) in this price point are moving on from larger, high maintenance houses.
The listing agent for this property was Kamyar Kadiver with Brian Logan Real Estate. Natalie Hasny with Capital Residential Properties represented the Buyer in the purchase of this property.
