D.C.’s old Atlantic Plumbing Supply Building has been reborn as a grand, industrial-style, multi-use project with 62 condo residences inside a façade unlike any other in the city. Designed by acclaimed architect Morris Adjmi
to reflect a New York City vibe, 2030 Atlantic Plumbing includes open floor plans that reflect the best in loft living, along with floor-to-ceiling windows offering brilliant views of the nation’s capital, custom cabinetry, porcelain tile, hardwood floors, shade window treatments and (most coveted of all in any urban high-rise home) a washer/dryer in each unit. You’ll be tempted, however, to spend much of your time outside; your home is in the heart of the exciting Shaw neighborhood, where college life (from nearby Howard University) collides with culture (from the hip U Street Corridor). In minutes, you’ll be able to catch concerts at the acclaimed 9:30 Club
and the U Street Music Hall
; trendy films at a six-screen Landmark Theater (located on the ground floor of the building); drinks at bars like Brixton and The Dirty Goose; and international cuisine including Ethiopian, Ghanaian, Mexican, and (for those early-morning munchies) Jumbo Slice.
