A former horse stable may just provide one of the coolest spots for loft-style condo living in the DC area. Located in Logan Circle, some of what’s now referred to as Fennessy Lofts takes up the old WH Penland & Company horse stable.

The horse stable business dates back to the late 1800s, although the building also once served as home to a cab company. It wasn’t until the 2000s that the property found new life as a condo project.

The entire development is a combination of a new, contemporary condo building, and an old livery stable found in the alleyway right behind it. Reimagined as dozens of condos, some of the Fennessy Lofts consists of units inside the old red brick stable.

Developers were able to retain a number of original design
