Studio 3807, a mixed-use development with 147 apartments, an upcoming food hall and 3,000 square feet of artist studios, ranges in price from $1,525 for a studio apartment to $2,200 for a two-bedroom.
The apartments come with the usual amenities — a fitness center, free parking, a bike share station — as well as some more interesting options, such as an art gallery with regular events, free wifi and solar-powered heating.
That appears to be drawing renters, even though the Brentwood apartment complex is a bit farther up from D.C. than other options.
The two complexes are part of a trend along Route 1 of high-end apartment construction. Farther south on Rhode Island Avenue, MidCity Development is planning a $600 million project with 1,700 apartments, 181,000 square feet of retail and a public park.
The projects are a sign that Route 1 is becoming a new hotspot for housing developers, and they’ll feed off each other.
