5 Rent Controlled DC Apartments To Tour This Weekend

When living in a big city, finding the right place to live at the right price can feel nearly impossible. Luckily, there are several apartment buildings throughout the District that are rent controlled, which makes finding affordable housing more realistic than we could have ever dreamed.  Learn more about exactly what “rent control” means, then keep reading below for some of our favorite rent controlled DC apartment buildings throughout the city.  

The Norwood

The building has studio and one-bedroom apartments available, which range in size from 526 SqFt to 709 SqFt.
