Which U Street 2 BR Condo Under $650K Makes Your Day?

It's been too long since Curbed DC has hosted a good Real Estate Death Match. The McLean Gardens rental eked out a victory over the Adams Morgan competitor, but low turnout seemed to indicate that neither apartment deserved $2,900/month. As such, the competition once again turns to condos looking for a more permanent buyer. These two 2 bedroom spots under $650K are rather close to each other but one is an old renovation and the other, a brand new space. So, in this battle of old vs. young, give a warm welcome to Real Estate Death Match: U Street Edition!

Address: 1726 U Street NW #3
Price: $635,000
Square Feet: 935
Beds, Baths: 2/2

The more seasoned (okay, older) condo has been around since 1905, but got quite the renovation a few years ago. As such, it still has older touches like fireplaces, but a much more modern kitchen. It's minimally smaller for the minimally cheaper price and has the advantage of being close to the Adams Morgan and Dupont nightlife should your night take you off of U Street.

Address: 2101 11th Street NW #402
Price: $649,900
Square Feet: 950
Beds, Baths: 2/2

This brand spanking new 2 bedroom in Lima Condos has the amenities one would expect of a newer building: namely, a rooftop terrace and a trendy breakfast bar. Actually, the trendiness goes past the seating arrangement and into the shelving. There are espresso cabinets in this space. No lie. This is on the opposite end of U Street, so it's closer to Columbia Heights and Shaw should you want a change of scenery.
