Toto We're Not in Kansas Anymore

Or the old DC for that matter. 22 West ain't cheap and it's not stodgy. Bob Dole would feel out of place. (He would stay put at the Watergate.)

The Story:

  • 95 Units, 1, 2 and 3 bdrms, $800K to $3.8 mil, 900 sf to 3500 sf

  • Zinc and glass facade,

  • Many units with 2 parking spaces, balconies

  • Rooftop pool overlooking Exxon station (yikes!)

  • The Scoop:
  • 22 West literally is being built around the Exxon station, which will be covered, hidden by a grass-covered canopy.

  • The West End used to be no man's land. Close to G'town for those who can't afford it. Now its taken on its own identity: close to G-Town and downtown but quieter with better retail (Trader Joes, more greenery.)

  • Are DC condo prices on the rise? Or is there just more super high-end supply that has masked post-bubble decline in prices? Could be both.

    What a stunning building. Great to have a room in there.
