22West, the West End’s five-star luxury condominium building, is on the verge of selling out with just three model units remaining. Developer EastBanc has announced the co-op commission for these final units has been raised to 5 percent.
22West is located at New Hampshire Avenue and 22nd Street NW (map), and has been repeatedly hailed as one of the District’s most exclusive luxury condominium projects. Recognized for its award-winning design, impeccable services and penchant for privacy, 22West has become a mecca for high-profile residents, including presidential appointees, members of Congress, diplomats and high-powered CEOs.
The remaining residences start at $1.72 million and were individually—and exquisitely—decorated by acclaimed interior designers of varying style. Each of the three 2,000 square-foot condos is therefore completely unique in character (scroll down for virtual tours). The units are available for purchase with or without all the current furnishings.
Few DC properties have retained their value through the economic rollercoaster of the last decade, but units in condominiums from 22West developer EastBanc have bucked that trend by reselling for record-setting prices. In 2011, three of the most expensive condos sold in the District were EastBanc properties, including a unit at 3303 Water Street in Georgetown that commanded the number one spot at $6,250,000.
It's no secret that EastBanc president Anthony Lanier, credited with revamping Georgetown's retail and residential communities, doesn't rely on reduced prices to fill units. Again and again he has created the most sought-after luxury condo projects in the city, like 22West and 3303 Water Street, where the quality of the product does the talking. Regardless of trends in the residential market, he's found that there is always a demand for excellence.
22West is uniquely situated on an island in the West End and has an exterior made entirely of glass and zinc. It’s an incredibly sleek, sustainable design where every apartment is flooded with natural light -- such a stand-out in a city of brick and concrete.
The sprawling rooftop includes a heated swimming pool (open April through November) and a terrace/deck with beautiful panoramic city views. The fitness room located in the penthouse common space is perfectly equipped. The 24-hour front desk concierge and porter are available to help residents with virtually any task, from picking up prescriptions and delivering groceries to booking rental cars and planning an evening out.
The three remaining condos include:
- a two-bedroom, three-bath unit with library priced at $1,833,500 (virtual tour);
- a three-bedroom, three-bath unit priced at $1,723,500 (virtual tour);
- and a two-bedroom, three-bath unit with library priced at $1,735,500 (virtual tour).
All three come with two parking spaces and storage.
