Dubbed the “most progressive community” in D.C., new properties at 17 Solar are giving buyers an option for solar-reliant housing that reduces energy consumption.
This eco-friendly housing project is just two blocks east of Capitol Hill and two blocks south of the Atlas District in the Rosedale and Kingman Park area just off the lively H Street corridor area. There are 26 units all powered by rooftop solar panels and all more efficient insulations than in the average home.
Floor plans range from first-floor flats to two-story stacked townhomes above the flats. Two stacked corner townhome models are also available. In fact, most of these 18 units are still available, according to the project’s website.
Two-story condos are hard to come by in Washington D.C., but the real estate market here does have several properties for homeowners looking for the convenience of cooperative living spread out on two floors.
The majority of condos in Washington D.C. are tight quartered, with the most common being studios or one-bedroom units. In the more suburban-like areas of the District, buyers may be more apt to find the rare two-story condo, although two-story condos can be found throughout all parts of the District.
Not surprisingly, two-story condos are significantly more expensive than their one-floor counterparts. For example one two-bedroom, two-story condo in the Adams Morgan area lists for $675,000. Other condos on one floor in this neighborhood list

The Rosa Condos have open floor plans and boast luxury gourmet kitchens, complete with full marble islands, as well as balconies and,
Just north of Georgetown, homes in Glover Park seem to offer it all. These properties are very close to one of Washington D.C.’s more elite neighborhoods along the Potomac River as well as a good amount of restaurants and shops but also close to more serene park environments of Rock Creek Park and Glover Archibald Park.
From quiet nature or metro pizazz, homes in Glover Park abound with amenities. And the choices among homes in Glover Park are just as diverse as the neighborhood’s highlights. Real estate listings, which have been on the rise in recent months, range from smaller condos to single family homes as this neighborhood has a good balance of both.
On the very small side, a 413-square-foot, one-bedroom at 1711 35th Street NW lists for
Washington D.C.’s Chinatown properties are in one of the city’s more eclectic neighborhoods, with flashing lights and that iconic and ornate “Friendship Archway” over H Street.
While Chinatown does have a good number of Asian eateries, this is an increasingly diverse pocket of the city and real estate here is in high demand. Chinatown properties are in a long-established developed area, so the majority of properties on the market are turnovers. But a few new projects are in the works, so home buyers or renters set on having a brand new space to break in may find some opportunities here, although they’re among the more expensive in the city.
Chinatown properties put residents quite close to the Verizon Center, which anchors the neighborhood. The Spy
Columbia Heights listings have increased, in fact doubled, in recent months from a low in March of about 14 active listings to about 31 listings in May, according to RealEstate Business Intelligence.
Columbia Heights is a sought-after Northwest neighborhood for its proximity to Adams Morgan and U Street but with slightly more affordable pricing and slightly larger properties, including a slew of condos. Listings in Columbia Heights, which borders Shaw and Park View, are also very close to Rock Creek Park and Dupont Circle.
Public high schools in Columbia Heights include Cardozo High School, Benjamin Banneker Academic High School, Bell Multicultural Senior High School and Booker T. Washington Public Charger School for Technical Arts. Lincoln Middle
Lofts in Washington D.C. are one of the most available real estate types in the city, both for renting or for buying. When many people envision lofts in Washington D.C., they imagine an open space room with an upper level looking out into the common area. They’re half right – lofts are notoriously open spaced, but they don’t necessarily have to have two levels to be considered a loft.
The word “loft” basically that a living space is partitioned over a warehouse or part of a renovated warehouse or factory. The ceilings are unfinished, giving lofts an industrial-type feel, often with exposed brick, exposed wood beams or original wood or concrete floors. The ceilings are always very high and airy.
Lofts in Washington D.C. are a very popular choice for
Mount Pleasant listings are perhaps not as ballyhooed as listings in Adams Morgan or Georgetown, but this neighborhood in Northwest Washington D.C. is a gem.
Mount Pleasant listings enjoy natural amenities. The community is bordered to the west by Rock Creek Park and to the south by the National Zoo, two of the District’s largest and well known recreation areas. Unlike nearby Adams Morgan, Mount Pleasant is a comparatively quiet area with few bars or restaurants. Instead, large row homes and older trees dominate the landscape here.
Mount Pleasant listings are diverse, and while inventory of active listing has risen from March to April, selections are still far from the numbers they were in 2012. Like most pricing trends in the District, Mount Pleasant

P Street condos are increasingly easy to come by as more development forges ahead in the Shaw areas.
P Street Residences are among the more recent projects for P Street Condos. This is a condo project that is tucked at the corner of P Street and 7th Street NW in the Shaw community. Valor Development’s plans call for a four-story condo building with a partially raised garage.
The 66 P Street condos in this development are on the smaller side, ranging from 510 square feet to 850 square feet. And they’re just steps away from the new John F. Kennedy Recreation Center and just three blocks south of the Shaw Metro.
