New Condo Spotlight: The Warehouses at Union Row

An Occassional Series Highlighting New Condo Developments

By Lauren Masterson 

What: The Warehouses at Union Row

Where: 14th and V Streets, NW

Expected Delivery: Fall 2007

Number of Units: 59

Price Range: High 400's to mid 800's.

Floorplans: All units have two bedrooms but range in size from one to two-and-a-half stories.

Luxurious Touches: Hardwood flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and track lighting. The two-and-a-half level units boast 10 to 13 foot ceilings, terraces, and a third-floor loft with a balcony.

Building Amenities: The units surround a courtyard with benches, fountains, and walkways. There is parking for most units, front desk service, and a first floor residents’ lounge with a flat screen TV and kitchen for parties.

Coolest Feature: The blending of old and new. The warehouses' original brick facade has remained intact, while the interiors and upper floors are comprised of new, modern—and eco-friendly—materials.

Potential Drawback: The courtyard is open to the public, which could mean lots of noise and little privacy.

Closest Metro Stop: U Street/Cardoza, about 2 blocks
