More Condos Go Rental
Comments () | Published November 26, 2007
Bethesda-based Donatelli Development announced that it is converting its Highland Park condominium in the District’s Columbia Heights neighborhood to rentals. Several retailers—including a Potbelly Sandwich Works, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and a new restaurant from Hank’s Oyster Bar’s chef/owner Jamie Leeds—have already signed on at the site, which is expected to open early next year. The 229-unit building features a landscaped rooftop deck, two-level fitness center, and party room with a plasma TV and billiards table.

Highland Park joins a growing list of condos converting to apartments, including Senate Square near Capitol Hill and McGill Row in LeDroit Park. Real-estate experts predict that as developers ditch their condo projects, the market should rebound from its recent slowdown. And as more units flood the rental market, those prices will likely fall.
