In a city short of vacant land, the adaptive re-use of obsolete buildings has become the norm for developers.  One of the best transformations in recent years is the Parker Flats at Gage School project located on the border of LeDroit Park and Bloomingdale neighborhoods.  This 92-unit project is anchored by the meticulously restored circa 1904 Gage School which houses 33 loft-style condos.  The project also includes two new buildings designed to complement the historic neighborhood and a 70-space underground parking garage.

Parker Flats developer finishes in many of the Gage School units include exposed brick, 14-foot ceilings, 12-ft historically accurate windows, stainless appliances, granite counters and maple cabinets.  Common amenities include underground parking, fitness room, additional storage units and a fenced courtyard.  The Parker Flats project was designed by Bostra Haresign.

Currently, two units are available for sale at Parker Flats including a 1 BR + den / 1 BA /  871 SF unit listed by TTR Sotheby's International Realty for $389,900.  Here is a resource to learn more about and view active Parker Flats at Gage School real estate listings.
