The Matrix: Cool Logan Condos in a Former Car Dealership
In the first half of the 20th century before World War II, Washingtonians ventured over to 14th Street in Logan Circle to purchase an automobile. The grand condo development buildings that line 14th Street and P Street in Logan formerly housed car dealerships.
One such building located at 1529 14th Street, was formerly a dealership for the long-defunct Nash Motors brand, and is now home to the Matrix condos. In the 1950s, Nash Motors merged with Hudson Motors to become American Motor Corporation (AMC). AMC was led by George Romney, father of current Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. AMC had success in the market with the Rambler brand and later acquired Kaiser Jeep before selling out to Chrysler in 1987.
While you can no longer buy a Nash on 14th Street, this former dealership building has been converted into an exciting loft-style building. Housing 40-units in a six-story structure, the Matrix effortlessly blends its industrial heritage with a complementary array of sleek modern appointments.
Developer finishes at the Matrix include hardwood flooring in the living room, dining room and kitchen, high 9' to 11' ceilings, concrete accent walls with dark brick banding, HansGrohe faucets, Bosch washer/dryers and marble/limestone baths. Selected Matrix units have private outdoor space, a highly coveted option in the 14th Street Corridor.
Common building amenities include a rooftop terrace with terrific neighborhood views and a contemporary lobby. Neighborhood hotspots including Whole Foods, Caribou Coffee, Vida Fitness and the entire 14th Street Corridor are just steps from the Matrix.
Currently, one unit is available for sale at the Matrix featuring 1 BR / 1 BA / 788 SF and views of 14th Street for $509,850. Here is a resource to learn more about and view active Matrix condo listings.
