An article titled, DC area's renters are caught in a squeeze, in yesterday's WaPo covers the continued escalation of rents in the Washington, DC area.

The shortage of rental units will not improve in the near-term as very few new residential projects were started in the District over the past couple of years due to capital constraints…

Towering over Dupont Circle the way Manute Bol used to man the low post for the Bullets, the Cairo is DC's tallest residential building. At 12 stories, the Cairo would seem more like Muggsy Bogues in high-rise centric markets like Manhattan, Miami or Chicago, but in the District it is a giant.
The Cairo was designed by architect Thomas Franklin Schneider who was inspired during a trip to the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. He fashioned the Cairo after the Fair's Transportation Building. The Dupont neighborhood didn't like the new skyscraper and soon afterward the DC Board of Commissioners enacted DC's stringent Heights of Buildings Act to prevent another "skyscraper" from being built in the District.
In its early life, the Cairo was the most glamorous
