Welcome to the our latest map of the hottest buildings to rent in right now (a question Curbed is asked frequently). Since this is the last time we'll update the map for the year 2012 we're looking a little further into the future than usual and adding some buildings that won't start leasing until January. All of them are in hot neighborhoods so only people who are on the ball enough to make sure the holiday lull doesn't thwart their plans to move into a brand new apartment will get in when the units become available. If you can't wait that long some of the buildings on the list are leasing now.Read More
Updating The Rental Heat Map For November 2012
The rental market in Arlington couldn't be tighter so this building will be a welcome addition once it is complete in January. They have already started signing leases for end of year move-ins.
Archstone First + M
This building was planned for NoMa before an all important grocery store moved in across the street (Harris Teeter), so developers saw the NoMa trend coming early. With over four hundred units it has just crossed the fifty percent leasing mark after only a few months of being open.
360 H Street
The second major residential development to come to the Atlas District after Flats At Atlas, is this one, delivering next March. With a Giant grocery store anchoring the retail space, the leases will go fast once they start in January.
One hundred and forty two units are coming next spring, but leasing begins in January. Since this is close to the Capitol Hill neighborhood there's pretty much guaranteed to be a waitlist within a few weeks of leasing opening to the public.
Ava On H Street
This building is by AvalonBay and is their first AVA concept. AVA's main allure is that it lets residents customize the units, such as painting the walls whatever color they like.
Trilogy at NoMa
The three buildings in the Trilogy NoMa development each have a different vibe—lofty, classic, elegant—but only the classic one is currently leasing. The rest are coming soon.
Rhode Island Row
Aria On L
This building won't be finished until December but they have already started to release information about how to lease their units.
