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

  • Citta 50
  • Cooper Lewis
  • Lofts 14
  • Lofts 14 Two
  • Logan

The  District is home to several wonderful condo developments whose buildings had a prior life as a DC public school.  With very limited vacant land, height restrictions and an ever-growing demand for upscale lofty condos, these school conversions are a concept that works well in the District for both the city as well as the developer.  In other parts of the country, many old and underutilized school buildings end up on the losing end of an encounter with the wrecking ball.

Common attributes of DC schoolhouse conversion projects include high ceilings, over-sized windows, exposed brick and outdoor courtyard areas.  Many school conversion projects have taken advantage of the ceiling height to create a loft environment.
