.....Columbia Heights might be the answer
With 2/2 condos in popular Logan Circle buildings like Cooper Lewis, Metropole and Solo Piazza currently selling in the $700s and $800s, buying in one of these buildings may be a stretch for some budgets. If this is the case, it may be time to venture north on 14th Street and see what Columbia Heights has to offer.
Columbia Heights Civic Plaza
Wikipedia defines the boundaries of Columbia Heights as 16th Street to the west; Spring Road to the north; Sherman Avenue to the east and Florida Avenue and Barry Place to the south.

The District is home to several wonderful condo developments whose buildings had a prior life as a DC public school. With very limited vacant land, height restrictions and an ever-growing demand for upscale lofty condos, these school conversions are a concept that works well in the District for both the city as well as the developer. In other parts of the country, many old and underutilized school buildings end up on the losing end of an encounter with the wrecking ball.
Common attributes of DC schoolhouse conversion projects include high ceilings, over-sized windows, exposed brick and outdoor courtyard areas. Many school conversion projects have taken advantage of the ceiling height to create a loft environment.

It only takes a couple of minutes of searching in the Washington DC MLS database to find a multitude of meandering neighborhood borders. When did the West End become Georgetown?......when did Capitol Hill extend to Nationals Park......did the national army of Kalorama invade Adams Morgan and claim Columbia Road as their own?
Was there a city-wide Realtor training session that I missed on how to juice up the price of a listing by stretching the borders of a neighborhood? I surely don't understand the logic behind advertising a property in a neighboring community. Aren't DC buyers just smarter than that? Armed with tools like Google Maps and GPS units can't most buyers see through this strategy? Also, with so much searching starting on the web,
