A Look Inside the Apartments At CityCenterDC

by Shilpi Paul

On Tuesday, UrbanTurf got to take a peek inside the new apartments at CityCenterDC.

The apartments are nearing the end of construction, with move-ins beginning in early December. Two model units are available for tours at the 458-unit project.

The units are modern, with floor-to-ceilings windows (which successfully muffle the construction noises), open floor plans and clean, modern kitchens and bathrooms. The two apartments buildings are also breezy and open: the design of the building calls for many cut-outs on the interior of the building, creating outdoor areas that do not open to the street. Glass walls separate the inside of the building from the plentiful interior courtyards, flooding the hallways with natural light.

Check out our photos below.

This two-bedroom unit, above, is located on the fourth floor, and residents will have a view down I Street NW and onto a park-like area at the corner of 9th Street NW and New York Avenue NW. The balcony is accessible through the living room and one of the bedrooms.

The above photos are from a one-bedroom unit, which has an open living area, a kitchen with an oversized island, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Inside the apartment building, there are several outdoor areas visible through glass walls that contribute to a flow of natural light in the building.

The retail plaza, above, is also under construction. According to Hines, the central plaza will have sit-down restaurants, high-end clothing stores, and appealing public spaces, like a very shallow water feature similar to the one at the National Portrait Gallery’s Kogod Courtyard (in fact, the designer of Kogod had a hand in designing CityCenter’s plaza). No word yet on the specific retailers coming to the site.

    Wow, those units are TINY for 3k/month. Curious as to who actually ends up renting there.

    You don't rent for the size. You rent for the location and the amenities. The people who ends up renting are affluent who care about what downtown has to offer and who enjoy the amenities that the apartment offers. Not the kind of people who stay at their big size apartment all day.

    that carpeting in the bedroom is disgusting. what is it with dc developers and wall-to-wall carpeting? ive never seen this in any other city. if im going to pay $3k a month for an apt, it better have wood floors

    "that carpeting in the bedroom is disgusting." Overstatement much, Joe? The carpet looks fine. Not everybody likes hopping out of bed onto a cold wood floor. The rest of the apartment is hardwood.

    <i>what downtown has to offer</i> Which would be what? One of the close-in neighborhoods have much more to offer.

    joe, while I understand people have different and sometimes strong opinions about carpeting, I wonder if it has more to do with being somewhat sound absorbent instead of putting in wall-to-wall carpeting for aesthetic reasons. Especially in urban/city living, where neighbors share walls and floors/ceilings, it's helpful to have sound-absorbing materials. Some cities require 80/20 (carpet to wood floor/bare floor/tile floor ratio). Maybe it's not true in DC but I would put a good guess that a higher-end developer would do this. If you're going to be charging 3k/month for rent, you really don't want to hear your neighbors, as lovely as they might be.

    Will that new park at 11th and New York just become an additional area for the homeless who are living across the street to linger and live? Will we have a "Franklin Park East" once that space opens up?

    According to CityCenterDC's Facebook page, Tumi is the first announced retail tenant.
