A unit at Harvard Row.
DC’s Columbia Heights is a neighborhood rich in architectural history—and its turn of the century Victorian and Eastlake-style houses are among the grandest residential properties in the city.
It takes an exceptionally skilled hand to both tastefully update and preserve 100+-year-old construction. Fortunately for DC residents, this is the highly specialized domain of Lock 7 Development, a DC-based builder with a passion for high-end construction and historically sensitive renovations.
This weekend, Lock 7 will debut their latest project, Harvard Row, a seven-unit condominium project in a repurposed Victorian-era mansion in Columbia Heights. Interested buyers will have a chance to walk through three model units at the project’s first official open house on Sunday, July 22nd, from 1pm to 4pm.
Harvard Row is located at 1449 Harvard Street (map), 1.5 blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro station on the Yellow and Green lines and not far from the DC USA shopping center. The building was originally constructed at the turn of the 20th century as a single-family home. Though the original house was one of the largest in Columbia Heights, Lock 7 added an additional 4,000 square feet to the rear of the building, nearly doubling the size. The team left the historic façade intact, but completely overhauled the interior, replacing the plumbing, electric, flooring, mechanical systems, fire sprinklers, kitchens and baths.

The results are 7 one- and two-bedroom condos ranging in size from 650 to 1,300 square feet, and priced between $379,900 and $650,000. The all-new interiors feature finished-in-place hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, marble tile and Kitchenaid Architect Series II appliances. All Harvard Row units have at least nine-foot ceilings, and the two penthouse units have soaring 18+-foot ceilings with skylights, as well as private roof decks with wet bars. (Nearly all of the homes have private balconies.) Outside, two secure parking spaces — available for $35,000 a piece — are located near the property’s large flagstone patio, which is part of the building’s common space.

Curious about where else you can spot Lock 7’s handiwork? Chances are you’ve passed by one of their properties. They’ve done major renovations in the U Street Corridor, Adams Morgan, Capitol Hill, Shaw and Brookland, and their project The Grayson was featured on HGTV’s My First Place. Not surprisingly, Lock 7 properties are in high demand. Their recently completed Newport Tower, located at 12th Street and Rhode Island Avenue (map), sold four units within two weeks of listing for sale. Most of the firm’s buildings sell out within two weeks of completion.
