One of the terms most commonly used by Realtors when marketing a DC Mid-city listing is "Close to Whole Foods." 

In our thinking there are two kinds of close to Whole Foods……one is the spring Sunday afternoon eight-block stroll from U Street……the other is the two over-loaded (reusable) bags of groceries on a cold and blistery January night close.

While Cooper Lewis and the Metropole get the gold star for being on the same block as the P Street Whole Foods, there are several other condo developments that qualify for the two over-loaded (reusable) bags of groceries on a cold and blistery January night close including:

  • 1441 Rhode Island
  • Berret School Lofts
  • Church Place
  • Citta 50
  • Cooper Lewis
  • Lofts 14
  • Lofts 14 Two
  • Logan

As church going habits and neighborhood demographics change, many church buildings are no longer in use as places of worship.  As we have seen with surplus District schools, a conversion to residential condos can bring a second life to a surplus building.  Several of our converted schools like Bryan School Lofts and Wormley Row are considered among the finest developments in the city.

Although there have not been as many church conversions in the District as converted schools, there are a coupe of notable conversions including:

Bishop's Gate

While technically not a church building re-use, Bishop's Gate is a conversion of the former St Augustine School, rectory and convent along 15th Street between R and S Streets.  After the merger in 1979 of St.…

Have you heard about the new mezzanine-level people watching perch at the P Street Whole Foods?  Now you can sit high above the action and watch health-conscious mid-city-ites shake melons, squeeze oranges and occasionally sneak a grape or two. People watching doesn't get any better than this!

For those who like to people watch.....and who doesn't in DC...how about a DC condo with a prime-time people watching balcony?  What could be better than checking out the scenery from your private balcony?

Much of the DC housing stock has outdoor balconies and space orientated away from the action towards the rear property.  After much introspective thought, here are our picks for the best people watching balconies in the District:
