This week in What X Rents You, UrbanTurf decided to take a look at lofts.

2,200-Square Foot Georgetown Waterfront Loft
When 3303 Water Street went up in 2004, developers spared no expense on the 70 units. With some condos selling for almost $8 million, this project was intended for well-heeled residents who want to be close to the Georgetown’s most urban center and to enjoy waterfront views. This 2,200-square foot, two-bedroom unit is for rent for a mere $9,000 a month. The industrial windows and open expanse of living area lend it a lofty vibe, and the exterior of brick, metal, glass and concrete make the building more modern than much of the rest of the neighborhood.

- Rent: $9,000 a month
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Footage: 2,200
Adams Morgan Loft With Plenty of Concrete
At almost 3,000 square feet, this three-bedroom is as big as many suburban homes. Concrete surfaces abound in the Kalorama Road loft: the floors are a cool stained version, and the walls are exposed concrete, rather than the ubiquitous brick. Besides concrete, there are other lofty elements: the ceilings are a jumble of steel beams, piping and terra cotta work. Right now, the interior design is quite distinctive, with wavy light fixtures, windows that look like portholes and plenty of color. The place comes with one parking space and is available on December 1st.
- Full Listing: Kalorama Road NW
- Rent: $4,500
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 2,965
Lofted Bedroom at Mass Court
By DC standards, a loft is sometimes a lofted room overlooking an open space: this final option offers just that. A metal staircase leads up to a lofted bedroom, which overlooks the main living area. The unit also has another bedroom, so two roommates could share the space fairly easily. The amenity-filled building seems to cater to young professionals with a yoga studio, a heated rooftop pool, a lounge/bar with a theater and a dry cleaner. Judging by the owner’s final parting — “Good Luck” — there may be a healthy market for units like this.
- Full Listing: 300 Massachusetts Ave NW, #711 (map)
- Rent: $2,968 per month
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Square Footage: 1,100
