Class In Session: Mapping D.C.'s Schoolhouse Conversions

View as Map

After mapping converted churches last week, it seemed only fair to give the District's converted schoolhouses their due. After all, there are more of them and many of those buildings have been around just as long. From the wealth of brick buildings in and around Capitol Hill, to a planned redevelopment by the Waterfront, here are ten converted schools. As usual, if we've left anything off, shoot a message to the tipline.

Formerly the Gage School, this former turn of the century school and former community center is on the National Register of Historic Places. The condo that's currently on the market is asking $547,650.

Wormley Row Condominiums

Copy Link

This high priced Georgetown condominium complex (the duplex penthouse is asking $5.7 million) was the Wormley School between 1885 and 1952 when it closed down.

Edmonds School

Copy Link

This conversion from school to condos is a very recent one. The $699,900 suite shown above is actually a former winner of the Nightlife Destination edition of Real Estate Death Match.

Randall School

Copy Link

This project is still in the planning phase but it will incorporate the existing brick and limestone building with new glass and metal behemoth. The entire project will be a combination of housing, retail, dining and art museum.

Logan School Condos

Copy Link

These condos near Union Station in the former Logan School ask around $379K and $385K whenever they're on the market.

Bryan School Lofts

Copy Link

This is yet another example of a former turn-of-the-century school on Capitol Hill that became condos. The condos appeared in 2004 but none appear to be on the market right now.

Lenox School Lofts

Copy Link

These fourteen high-ceilinged loft apartments appeared on the market around the same time as the Bryan School Lofts. Much like the Edmonds School properties, they show off their former life through the exposed brick.

Carberry School Lofts

Copy Link

Whoa, yet another brick building from the late 1880s in Capitol Hill that exists as condos now! We're noticing a pattern here. Or perhaps a cluster.

Lovejoy Lofts

Copy Link

Although Lovejoy Elementary was built at the turn of the century it now houses 54 condos. There are currently no available spots in the Lofts. Considering that the long list of amenities include that it's pre-wired for cable and has private parking available, it's understandable that people might not want to leave.

Berret School

Copy Link

An apartment in this Logan Circle school built in the 1880s sold almost two years ago for $630K.
