A Makeover For A One Hundred And Twenty Year Old Building

The same people bringing the District a renovated Shaw's Tavern have also brought a luxury apartment building to New Jersey Avenue. This building was built in 1892 when exposed brick was definitely in style. Luckily, that same look works just as well next to stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops without screaming "I'm outdated, I'm outdated!" The tall windows help bring a sunshine-y sparkle to the place and some of the units give a nice view of the Capitol building. Rents start around $2K per month and go up to about $4,800 for the penthouse unit (3 bedrooms, Jacuzzi tub, rooftop get the idea).
