New Kids On The Block: Brand New DC Apartments To Tour This Weekend
Reed Row Apartments
Welcoming their first move-ins mid-May, this Adams Morgan addition delivers on all of the luxury amenities that tend to be more scarce in this neighborhood. In an area known for townhome rentals and charming, older apartment buildings, this luxury community, complete with a rooftop terrace, dog wash station, zen garden, fitness center and more, is sure to stand out from the crowd. Aesthetically, we love the industrial organic feel of the building and apartments alike. A cool mix of natural elements and sleek, modern architecture play perfectly off of one another. One truly unique offering at Reed Row is the “pod-style” unit floorplan – essentially a studio apartment where the sleeping and living spaces are separated by a central “pod” which includes other apartment essentials, like a kitchen, bathroom, closet, and laundry facilities.
Mt. Vernon Triangle
With a grand opening in October 2016, this Mount Vernon Triangle apartment community has already seen its fair share of move-ins but is still – by our definition – a spring chicken in the DC market. In addition to a host of thoughtfully designed amenity spaces and a great variety of floorplans to choose from, the location at The Aspen is hard to beat. With a Safeway market 2 blocks away, plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and 4+ metro stations just a few minutes away on foot, residents here can get to just about anything they need in the city.

455 Eye Street
Another Mt. Vernon development has our attention, and it is a truly unique piece of architecture. 455 Eye Street, welcoming first move-ins June 1, thoughtfully blends the existing structures of a historic warehouse, autoworks building, and two townhomes with the sleek addition of a substantial glass and brick structure. This same theme continues indoors, blending original elements like exposed brick with modern fixtures, appliances, and amenities. In addition to the typical studio, one and two bedroom apartments that the DC market is used to seeing, 455 Eye Street also offers loft and townhome style units for rent.
