You work hard, so life outside of work should be fun.  Why not live in a fun place? The Whitman, located across the street from the DC Convention Center tops the list of fun DC condo developments. 

The fun begins with one of the best rooftops in the city.  A roof-top lounge, generous-sized pool and grilles play host to fun-filled weekend pool parties at the Whitman.  After partying on the roof, you can join the party a couple of blocks away at 7th and G Street, the core of DC's emerging entertainment district.

The Whitman's amenities help to simplify your daily life.  Three levels of underground parking allow for parking with each unit.  A 24-hour concierge, full gym and community room

A Downtown Address with Suburban Conveniences

Who says that urban living involves a fourth-floor walk-up after schelping groceries on the Metro in a rainstorm......With a Safeway, Starbucks, Busboys and Poets, Results Gym, hardware store and more, City Vista brings the conveniences of the suburbs to a Downtown location.
 
City Vista's location on 5th St between K and L is at the edge of Downtown redevelopment, with plenty of urban grittiness in the area.  The upside is that this location is just two blocks from the Convention Center and four blocks from Gallery Place.  With plenty of available vacant land, it is easy to imagine a not so distant timeframe when City Vista serves as the anchor of a complete neighborhood makeover.  City Vista weighs in

Walking is the essence of the DC urban lifestyle.  It doesn't matter if you are a K Street attorney with a pair of cordovan Allen-Edmonds oxfords or a lobbyist adorned in a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps and a secret pair of New Balance running shoes stashed away for the daily commute.........walking around the District is part of your daily routine.

Walk Score is a company that has graded properties and neighborhoods across the country for their walkability.  Washington, DC comes in very high at #7 on the national ranking of major cities only trailing the likes of San Francisco, New York, Boston and Chicago.  Walk Score uses a 100 point grading system and some of the District's neighborhoods have extremely high walkability rankings:

I am pleased to announce the arrival of Washington DC's newest real estate website, the DC Condo Boutique.  The site went live on November 4, 2009 at 9:22 PM EST.  It was a relatively brief and uneventful period of propagation after the domain name servers were updated at 7:30 PM EST.

The DC Condo Boutique is a hefty entrant into the Washington, DC real estate cyberspace, weighing in at 202 pages and 210 snippets.  The proud dad has a bit of a sore wrist, tired eyes and some worn keys on his MacBook Pro as a result of the fast and furious pace of development.

A huge shout out to the staff at REW for their patience, guidance, knowledge and assistance throughout the development of this baby. Thanks Garet, Ross, Gerry, Nick and Morgan for your excellent work.
