1615 6th Street NW

Almost a year ago, UrbanTurf wrote about The Matisse, a two-unit condo project near the Logan Circle/Shaw border. We noted that the project was a bit of an anomaly for two reasons: 1) It consisted of just two units, a rarity in a city where townhome condo projects are usually comprised of at least four units, and 2) It was brand new construction, also uncommon for a project this small in the city.

It appears that Shaw is just an area that attracts projects like these.

UrbanTurf has learned that 1613 6th Street NW (map) will go on sale soon and, like The Matisse, it has been built from the ground up and has only two units.

Each condo at 1613 6th Street NW is a two-bedroom, two-bath unit with just over 1,000 square feet of interior space. The floorplan for each is set up with the living and kitchen areas in front and the bedrooms in the rear. As is common of new construction these days, the condos have a number of green features including bamboo flooring, Energy Star windows and appliances, and high-efficiency insulation. Also, both have built-in sound systems and are pre-wired for iPod docking stations. There are small decks on each unit, but just the lower level has access to the project's backyard.

Neither unit comes with parking, but the project is two blocks south of the Shaw-Howard University Metro on the Green Line. The upper-level condo will be listed for $474,000 and the lower level unit will be listed for $464,000. For more information, see the developer Capital City Real Estate's website here.
