For industrial style lofts in Logan, it’s worth exploring the possibilities of Northern Exchange. The conversion property offers up choices ranging from studios to two-bedroom units, with three-dozen different residences found within the five-story property.

Originally constructed at the turn-of-the-century for a telephone company, the building was later converted into loft-style condos by PN Hoffman just a few years ago, and delivered in 2013. Starting at around 500 square feet of living space, some of the largest units of Northern Exchange command around 1,000 square feet of living space.

New buyers and residents are treated to stainless steel appliances and some private terraces for desirable outdoor space. As well, other additions include some of the more traditional design elements of the old building such as exposed brick, high ceilings and some sleeping lofts.

Some residents also enjoy units featuring original terracotta ceilings and large windows. The building’s origins also come through in its lobby, with a restored historic phone booth, as well as some original framed building blueprints and a large photo of what the building used to look like before its conversion into condos.

All residents of Northern Exchange, meanwhile, additionally enjoy community amenities such as a rooftop deck with sweeping views of the surrounding area, an outdoor grilling area and fire pit, plus a lounge. In addition, you’ll also find bike storage in the building, plus ground level retail space currently occupied by a restaurant.

Northern Exchange sits at the corner of 14th Street and R Street in the Logan Circle neighborhood. This puts residents within walking distance of two Metro stations and a Whole Foods Market, as well as the vibrancy of the 14th Street Corridor. From nearby bars and restaurants to trendy boutiques, you’ll find it all just a short distance away from the lofts of Northern Exchange in Logan Circle.
