Standing guard over the intersection of 20th Street NW and Kalorama Road, the Mendota protects this corner the way a left tackle protects a quarterback.  The Mendota, which is featured in Goode's Best Addresses, was the first apartment building constructed in Kalorama Triangle.  At the time of its construction in 1901, the Mendota offered an upscale housing alternative to owning a DC rowhouse.  Over the next 26 years after the completion of the Mendota, 25 additional apartment buildings would be constructed in Kalorama Triangle.
