Parker15 Coming To U Street Corridor
Modern new luxury condos, Parker15, are currently under construction in DC’s U Street Corridor at the southeast corner of 15th and V Streets, NW. Located in the midst of the hot U Street neighborhood, the Parker15 condo building marries modern stylish California design elements with a historic culturally rich location. Parker15 will be a 9-story building with floor to ceiling windows to bring in ample natural sunlight and take in stunning city views. The area’s historic nature blends in well with new modern elements such as tan brick, glass bay windows and metal accents. The U Street neighborhood enjoys abundant nightspots, dancing, dining, and shopping conveniently located with easy access to the Metro Green Line and bus routes, art galleries, more than 40 bars and restaurants, and 7 music venues.
The Parker15 condos are selling now from $400,000-$750,000, and anticipated to be completed in 2016. This highly desirable neighborhood has so much to do, whether shopping for home furnishings, antiques or fashion; dining at local cafes and restaurants; strolling through one of the 8 art galleries; or checking out one of the 7 local music and entertainment venues. Dupont Circle is a nearby destination for residents as well as the U Street corridor.
The new luxury condos located at 2005 15th Street, NW, are a 96-unit condo building by Bozzuto Homes. Parker15 is comprised of one bedroom, two bedroom and studio floor plans. The amenities will include a rooftop deck, community lounge, patio, underground parking, and bike storage. Parker15 replaces a parking lot, and before that the historic Dunbar Hotel. The project is named Parker15 in honor of jazz saxophonist and composer Charlie Parker. The Dunbar Hotel was one of DC’s most elite African-American hotels in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Some of America’s musical greats who stayed at the Dunbar Hotel while they performed at U Street jazz clubs include Nat King Cole, Count Basie, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Duke Ellington. This was a time before hotels integrated. When hotels later integrated, the Dunbar Hotel lost popularity and was eventually torn down and replaced by a parking lot.
