Northern Exchange

Lofts are among the most sought-after property type in DC, and this weekend, Northern Exchange will give the public a look at some of the most original and unique lofts in the city.

Northern Exchange, the latest residential development from long-time DC developer PN Hoffman, is located in the former Chesapeake & Potomac (C&P) Telephone Company building at the corner of 14th and R Streets, NW (map). At one time the main switchboard for Northwest and Northeast DC, the building has been carefully transformed over the last year with an emphasis on paying homage to its former life.

The grand opening this weekend of the two model units on the second floor will offer visitors the first glimpse at these true loft designed units. The residences feature the building’s original soaring 14-15-foot terra cotta ceilings, exposed brick walls, original hardwood flooring (select units) and the original window openings from when the building was constructed in 1902, which means that every unit is flooded with light. Most of the units have raised sleeping spaces that look out on living and dining areas which, with the sky-reaching ceilings, amplify the loft feel. The original details are complemented by 21st century finishes, including Bosch and Fagor appliances as well as ample closet space, and sleek, modern bathrooms with Porcelanosa tile.

Every resident will also have access to outdoor space as the building has a modern rooftop deck with a residents’ lounge, fire pit, outdoor grilling area, and sweeping views of downtown DC. The lobby will feature a restored historic phone booth, as well as an enlarged photo of the building’s former raw, industrial interior by Colin Winterbottom. Halls will be lined with framed original linen blueprints of the building’s former floor plans.

Northern Exchange is located at the epicenter of the 14th Street Corridor, among some of the city’s trendiest boutiques, bars and restaurants, and just minutes away from Whole Foods and Metro. However, residents won’t have to go very far at all for a bite to eat. Bar Bari, an Italian restaurant and espresso bar from the people behind Drafting Table and TangySweet, has just announced that it will open in Northern Exchange’s ground floor. Bar Bari will serve espresso, cocktails, gelato and food including charcuterie, lasagna, and cannoli, with indoor and outdoor seating for diners.

Prices at Northern Exchange start in the low $300,000s. Interested buyers should attend the grand opening this weekend for 12pm to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday in order to make a reservation appointment for one of the limited release units on the second and third floors. Reservation appointments will start beginning on Wednesday, October 17th.

To learn more, visit the Northern Exchange website or call 202-803-5130.
