Another day, another luxury apartment building. This time, it’s upper Wisconsin Avenue’s Cathedral Commons, a long-awaited redevelopment of the old Giant grocery spot. The new mixed-use building, managed by Bozzuto, is slated to open at the end of May with 137 apartments and eight townhouses stacked atop retail that mixes trendy hotspots (Barcelona Wine Bar, Pure Barre) with more practical, if more pedestrian, retail (Giant, CVS).
The apartments are designed with the expected luxury features—think white quartz counters and subway tile backsplashes—but it certainly comes at a price. A 468-square foot studio rents for $2,108; a 3,008 square foot three-bed, two-bath rents for $9,750, according to the development’s website. Perhaps Bozzuto should look to one of its other luxury properties, The Woodley, as a cautionary tale—after eight months that development’s only managed to lease 30 percent of its rentals, which go for up to $12,000.
Here’s a look inside one of the larger apartments and a few of the building’s common areas.
