The skeleton of the massive mixed-use project CityCenter is finally starting to take shape at 9th and H Street NW (map), and a recently launched website reveals what the residential units will look like.

The two-tower, 216-unit condo building was designed by Foster + Partners, and has a breezy, modern, open look. Floor-to-ceiling windows and solar shading help maximize and manage the amount of light that enters each unit, and all condos will have an outdoor area. Shared amenities will include a spa treatment room, a wine cellar, and a fire pit. Unit sizes will range from 675 to 2,675 square feet, with one-bedrooms starting in the $400,000s and two-bedrooms in the $700s. Delivery is expected for the 4th quarter of 2013.

    The condo fees are going to be insane. They look nice though, don't get me wrong. If I read this right, you're gonna need $14K up front if it's FHA approved

    They're pricier than I expected.

    Any idea whether they will be making some of the units available to middle-income people, like many of the newer developments in DC have?

    20% of both rental and for sale units are to be reserved for affordable/workforce housing. I have been trying to locate a PUD which would provide more details about the breakdown, but have so far been unsuccessful. http://www.oldconventioncenter.com/project_commit.php http://www.dcrealestate.com/condos.php?prop=290

    I was looking to buy at City Center but it is absolutely outrageously overpriced. I'll be surprised if they can get any of the places to appraise for a loan. So I guess they need cash customers? Also, they won't even give you a sales contract without a 10% deposit. Not down payment...just the deposit. 2 bedrooms with obstructive views and no privacy under 1000 square feet run up to 850K and anything more than 1000 square feet to 1300 square feet without obstructed views are 1.2 million. That's a 1000.00 / square foot. I'm sure someone will pay it but not me. Also, the homeowners fees will be outrageous....over $1.00 per foot per month. Again...anyone working can't pay these prices...it's gonna have to be wealthy that can pay cash.
