The Lafayette Offers Penn Quarter Elegance
Living in chic Penn Quarter is one of DC’s most sought after addresses, a wonderful neighborhood that can boast an array of amenities, especially culture. Only Penn Quarter is a location in northwest DC that can offer every line of Metro, walking distance to the Verizon Center, Capitol Hill, the Spy Museum, the National Museum of American Art, the National Gallery of Art, the Convention Center, Chinatown, The Shakespeare Theatre, Woolly Mammoth Theatre, and The Warehouse Theatre. While Penn Quarter can boast many neighborhood amenities and highbrow culture, residents of the elegant Lafayette condo building enjoy their own slate of amenities along with this convenient location.
One of DC’s most sought after residential buildings, the Lafayette greets residents with an elegant lobby with a staffed front desk and 24/7 security, dramatic marble staircase leading to the upper floors, elevators, secured entrances and secured underground parking garage, on-site management, landscaped courtyard, a rooftop terrace with an outdoor swimming pool and gas grills, lounges, dining areas, and stunning views of the city and National Mall museums and monuments. The Lafayette, a mid-rise building, is pet-friendly, and has two fully equipped fitness centers, a pub room, a clubroom for social gatherings with a kitchen and pool table, a business center and a conference room.
The Lafayette, a 12-story mid-rise modern luxury building, has a beautifully restored historic façade with all new interior construction that adds character to the residences. The Lafayette is located at 631 D Street, NW, and has several different open floor plans from lofts to 3 bedrooms. Each luxury condo has upscale features that are standard, such as gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances; luxury bathrooms and a spa in master suite; walk-in closets; and plenty of storage. The 179 units range in size from 540-1,740 square feet. The top floor has two and three-level penthouses with private roof decks and floor to ceiling windows letting in abundant natural light.
With an impressive building design comes an equally impressive location with easy access to transportation. From the Lafayette, it’s a short walk to downtown offices and Capitol Hill, and a host of public transportation within reach of this complex. Residents who take the Metro to work can ride the Red, Orange, and Blue Lines at Metro Center, the Green and Yellow Lines at the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter station and the Red, Green, and Yellow Lines at Gallery Place---all an easy walk from the front door of the Lafayette, which makes it an appealing building to live in for commuting to work. Great restaurants are just steps away, in addition to coffee houses, the Metro, art museums, multiple theaters, bookstores, entertainment venues, and a weekly farmer’s market.
