For new condos in Brookland, consider taking a look at The Brooklander. This exclusive new condo building houses less than a dozen condos, and is part of a conversion project by Lock 7 Development.

Developers started with two existing retail buildings, constructing the pop-up condo project along 12th Street NE in the Brookland neighborhood. Now an 11-unit residential building, the new building offers a mix of different floor plans for new buyers to choose from.

This includes a trio of one-bedroom, one-bath units and a single one-bedroom, one-bath with a den. In addition, the property offers four two-bedroom/two bath units. The final three remaining units within The Brooklander all include three-bedrooms and at least two-baths.
