In this installment of UrbanTurf Reader Asks, a DC condo buyer is running into difficulty finding newer condo buildings that offer front desks/concierge services, and is looking for recommendations.
I have been looking for several years for a two-bedroom condo with a front desk/concierge. I am not looking for a high-end unit or building, can spend $555,000 to maybe $600,000, and want to be in the District or very close in.
I am interested in a front desk primarily for the security it inherently (albeit not always) provides and secondarily for the service, but also think that it is crucial for buyers who travel for their jobs, work long hours and come and go at all hours of the night. I have found it difficult to identify buildings in DC with this option, and was hoping that UrbanTurf readers could provide a few options. Are any of the new condo projects offering front desks? I realize that a number of the older co-op buildings in DC have front desks, but they have not done much to modernize their decor and look like the lobby equivalent of Miss Haversham, so I am not very interested in those. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
