At Fourth Street and New York Avenue, Northwest, Yale Steam Laundry Condominiums is made up of a restored 1902 commercial laundry facility and an adjoining new high-rise. A two-story loft almost identical to the model shown here (which already sold) is one of 16 units in the historic building. It comes with the laundry’s original glazed brick plus ceilings up to 20 feet high, hardwood floors, and an open kitchen. The building has a fitness center, a billiard room, and a rooftop deck with a pool. A space in the underground garage goes for $37,000.
