The Cairo

About The Cairo

When it was completed in 1849, The Cairo was intended to be the first of D.C.’s residential skyscrapers. Now, the building is a landmark feature of Dupont Circle and holds the prestigious position of being the city’s tallest residential building, at 164 feet. Designed in beautiful brick by architect Thomas Franklin Schneider, The Cairo features 168 units in various options and square footage (from studios to multi-level homes). In the building’s higher residences, enjoy uncompromising views of the city – perfect for Fourth of July parties. And its location on the 1600 block of Q Street puts you in a great spot to enjoy all the excitement Dupont and Logan Circle have to offer, including upscale French cuisine (at Le Diplomate), grocery shopping (at Whole Foods or, for cheaper budgets, at Safeway), and two gorgeous public parks that offer limitless opportunities to relax and people watch. Amenities in the individual units and the building include fireplaces, exposed brick, A/C, and on-site laundry. An impressive building in an impressive neighborhood, The Cairo is the epitome of high-rise living in D.C.
