Above: CityCenter DC (now – August 2012)
It’s amazing to see a $700+ million real estate development project covering 10 acres grow up before your very eyes which is exactly what CityCenter DC is doing downtown (9th to 11th St NW and H St to New York Ave NW). Of great interest is the 9th and H St NW corner shown above which will showcase one of two residential condo buildings comprising 216 units. The official name is The Residences at CityCenter and this last week the floorplans were made available on their official website. The variety includes one, two, and three bedroom homes with the ones starting in the $400K range and the twos starting in the $700K range. Square footage ranges from 689 square feet to 2,676 square feet. The planned interior buildout is shown in great detail and sports a modern European aesthetic.
The amenities and services look fantastic and include the following: concierge, 24-hour security, parking, key fob access, storage, fitness center, yoga studio, two roof parks, outdoor kitchens, outdoor dining room, outdoor fire pit, lounge, wine storage, bar lounge, dining room, catering kitchen, executive board room, guest suite, spa treatment room, and a landscaped terrace. These are amenities that could get lots of use from an active downtown community of residents. There are some great design features and we really like the roof top dining idea. There is a water feature but noticeably absent is a swimming pool which we do enjoy in our downtown condo.
The project is supposed to deliver in 2013 and we’re glad to see that it will add to the “living” part of downtown DC.
