After an attentive yearlong renovation, Columbia Heights’ historic Park Road Courts is nearing completion. The 28-unit apartment building, overhauled by historic renovation experts Urban Investment Partners (UIP), is located at 1346 Park Road NW (map) and will be ready for move-in in mid November. It is now open for tours.
Kitchen at Park Road Courts.
Park Road Courts is located just off 14th Street, directly across from the Giant and less than a block from Best Buy and Target. It is a short walk from local favorites Sticky Fingers Bakery and Red Rocks Pizzeria and a short bike ride (bike racks are on site) from the U Street Corridor and Adams Morgan.
UIP spent a year gutting and restoring the entire structure, inside and out. The lobby, exterior details, and antique wood floors in most of the apartments were restored to their original beauty. Aside from these 1920s details, little remains of the original infrastructure. The building was stripped down to the bones, old systems removed, new systems installed and finished with great detail. The electrical, plumbing and heating/cooling systems are all brand new.

Kitchens have tile backsplash, large granite islands with built-in bookshelves, smart appliances -- including microwave ovens and dishwashers -- and dark-stained wood cabinetry. Bathrooms have delightful chocolate-brown tiling. Two-bedroom apartments are equipped with one bathtub and one shower. Every apartment also comes standard with modern conveniences such as in-home washer/dryer (in addition to a communal laundry room on the terrace level) and USB charging outlets for iPhones, iPads, etc.
Most of the new Park Road Courts apartments are two-bedroom, two-bath units with spacious floor plans, large windows and either balconies or patios. Ranging in size from 844 to 1,035 square feet, the two-bedrooms start at $2,500 a month. A handful of one-bedroom, one-bath apartments will also be available in November. They range in size from 680 to 745 square feet and start at $2,100 per month.
Parking is available through Giant or neighboring Park Triangle Apartments. Park Road Courts is close to several public transit lines. Just a couple blocks away, the Columbia Heights Metro Station is on the Yellow/Green line, and a number of bus lines (including the Circulator) run up and down 14th Street.
