This Week’s Find: Loft Living Near the Convention Center

by UrbanTurf Staff

This Week's Find: Loft Living Near the Convention Center: Figure 1

The rent is admittedly a little ambitious for this two-bedroom near the intersection of 11th and M Street NW, but for those with a large rental budget it may be worth the extra cost.

The unit does have a loft feel going for it, and the fact that the eventual tenant will have elevator access right into their apartment is one of those amenities that UrbanTurf finds uber-luxurious. While not a loft in the true sense of the word, the unit has a large living space with massive floor-to-ceiling windows made of tinted low-e glass.

The kitchen has a Sub-zero refrigerator and recycled glass countertops, and there is a balcony off the living room. The building offers concierge services and has a number of eco-friendly features, including a green roof, and energy-efficient lighting and dual-flush toilets in the units.

    They are asking approximately double what it's worth.

    Asking $5000/month for this is crazy. No way it's worth over $4000/month, and $3500 is probably more realistic.

    Holy crap, there's no way someone pays $5K for that location.

    At 1400 SF, it's about $3.57/SF, which isn't insane given the quality level. As a fully furnished pied-a-terre or rental for someone on a short-term contract, there's a market for it. We realized $3,500 for a year on an 1,100 SF furnished 1br/2ba and are getting $3,650 for a 740 SF furnished 1BR/1BA. Faraji Whalen Domus Property Management Http://rentdccondos.com

    Assuming 30 days a month, that's $167 per night. May as well just stay at a full service hotel.
