UPDATED: Mapping D.C.'s School To Home Conversions

View as Map

Last October we tried to track down and map all of D.C.'s converted schoolhouses. Apparently, some of our commenters and tipsters did extra research and they get a gold star and extra credit for letting us know about some of the conversions we missed. In fact, the Curbed National mothership pointed out that there's one converted schoolhouse in Northeast that's asking $6.5 million. Yes, the whole thing is on the market.

1. Parker Flats

Copy Link
2035 2nd St NW
Washington, DC

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.

2. Wormley Row Condominiums

Copy Link
3329 Prospect Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20007

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.

3. Edmonds School

Copy Link
901 D Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

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.

4. Randall School

Copy Link
65 I Street Southwest
Washington, DC 20024

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.

5. Logan School Condos

Copy Link
301 G St NE
Washington, DC 20002

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

6. Bryan School Lofts

Copy Link
1315 Independence Avenue Southeast
Washington, DC 20003

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.

7. Lenox School Lofts

Copy Link
725 5th St SE
Washington, DC 20003

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.

8. Carberry School Lofts

Copy Link
410 5th Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

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.

9. Lovejoy Lofts

Copy Link
440 12th St NE
Washington, DC 20002

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.

10. Berret School

Copy Link
1408 Q Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20009

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

11. Morgan Annex

Copy Link
2428 17th St NW
Washington, D.C. 20009

As of 1993, this Adams Morgan building has been the home of 15 loft style apartments, but the large windows should give away its former purpose.

12. William Syphax School

Copy Link
1360 Half Street SW
Washington, D.C. 20024

The William Syphax School is now Syphax Village. William Syphax, a trustee for Washington and Georgetown schools in the late 1800s was an early proponent for integrated schools. The school closed in the early 1990s and now the townhouses that took its place are among some of the most affordable on this map. Photo by Wikipedia user AgnosticPreachersKid.

13. Pierce School Lofts

Copy Link
1375 Maryland Ave NE
Washington, D.C. 20002
(202) 359-7368

The interesting thing about this school turned lofts is that the entire thing is actually on the market for $6.5 million. It's a very interesting renovation that had been used as a personal residence (and lofts for renters), but now the former Northeast school is up for grabs. Photo via Homevisit.

14. Phillips School Condominium

Copy Link
2735 Olive St NW
Washington, D.C. 20007

If you want to live in this Georgetown conversion, that option is available to you...for a hefty price. There's a two bedroom available in this pet friendly condo building for $959K. And that's the reduced price.

15. The Eckington School

Copy Link
First Street Northeast & Quincy Place Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

It hasn't been The Eckington School since the 1980s, but the sign that says Eckington School is still above the main entrance to the building.
