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.
The 17 Solar Condos and Townhomes project was designed by D.C. architectural firm A2 Design and developed by District Development Group.
The H Street Corridor area is renowned in D.C. as being a hipster neighborhood with a slew of restaurants, bars, theaters and other nightlife. Trolley service is set to launch here in 2014 and residents are fairly close to both the Union Station Metro and Eastern Market Metro.
The 17 Solar Condos and Townhomes give residents private, off-street parking, private outdoor yards or patios, lofted bedrooms in the stacked models and loft-style large window. Developers have applied for LEED certification.
