Sponsored: New Condos in Shaw Promise Luxury Living Amid Neighborhood Renaissance: Figure 1

By the end of summer, a brand new development called 515 Q Street will officially open its doors in DC’s Shaw neighborhood. Located at 6th and Q Streets NW (map), this three-story, three-residence project is in a prime location a few blocks from the Shaw Metro station, the newly-reopened Howard Theatre, and the under-construction O Street Market. But what will most likely grab the attention of prospective buyers are the spacious floor plans, individual outdoor spaces, and the fact that this is one of the greenest buildings in the neighborhood.

Developer Devereux Ventures and broker M Squared Real Estate anticipate officially putting 515 Q Street on the market in August. However, for a sneak peek they will offer hard-hat tours on Sunday, July 15, between 5:00 and 7:00pm. (Click here to attend.)

The residences at 515 Q Street measure between 1,200 and 1,400 square feet, and they range in price from the low $500s (ground level) to the high $500s (top level). Each of the units include two large bedrooms, a den, two full bathrooms, an open kitchen, and a large living room and dining room. Ten-foot ceilings and eight by eight windows are featured throughout. To maximize the space, the builders took pains to bury joints in the floors so that rooms are unobstructed by columns as well as creating secure basement storage units.

The building as a whole has a number of innovative details that buyers won’t typically find elsewhere. The designers of 515 Q Street took hints from the neighborhood: With a host of nearby dog parks, the property (which is pet friendly) has its own outdoor dog washing station. And though central to several Metro bus and train lines, 515 Q Street also includes self-locking bike racks in the common space to enable residents to take advantage of the bike-friendly neighborhood.

From the inside out, 515 Q Street was designed for sustainability. The exterior was built entirely with green building materials, and all of the interior materials, from the drywall to the hardwood floors, are eco-friendly. 515 Q Street is also outfitted with Low-E, Energy Star windows and appliances, and LED accent lighting—all of which save energy and cut down on utility costs.

Shaw is located just north of downtown DC and is bordered by the U Street Corridor, Logan Circle and Bloomingdale. This is a very charming historic neighborhood that is experiencing major revitalization. Over the next few years, expect to see lots of new shops, restaurants, and renovations, most notably the revitalization of the historic O Street Market (which will include a Giant Food Store).
