High-Rise Condos in Washington DC Metro Area

One of Washington Metro's largest real estate markets is the hi-rise or high-rise residential multi-family dwelling. From highly affordable to the pinnacle of luxury, the towering buildings continue to offer developers a means to expand upward in urban settings where space is at such a premium. Hi-rises have gone through various phases of popularity over the years but always seem to regain favor, especially during boom periods.

While it's not uncommon to find some form of condos or townhouses in most Washington Metro communities, the more sought-after hi-rises are often found in high-density sustainable areas. This isn't exclusively true – there have been periodic spikes in mid-rise and hi-rise construction in suburban areas during the modern (post WWII) era . Going hand-in-hand with boom-period overbuilding is lowered long term value. In other words, if you search in the high five-figure to very low six-figure range, you're apt to find a number of short sales or motivated sellers in areas like Alexandria and Arlington, Virginia and Silver Springs, Hyattsville and Adelphi in Maryland.

High Rise Condos in Washington DC Metro AreaWhen it comes to architectural design, hi-rises in Washington Metro tend to fall into distinctive era-associated categories. First, you have grand old hotels that were ultimately converted to condos. These are often found in DC itself - opulent Beaux Arts, Gothic or Art Deco palaces that have become much in demand in the modern era. The post war period was a time of rapid expansion and brought the International design movement, typified by huge rectangular towers with side-by-side square balconies or window grids. The curvilinear movement was popular for a while and is still in evidence with some new construction – sleek, lots of glass and lots of flowing lines. The most recent hi-rise trends have found a merging of traditional and modern design, with large windows and stylized elements such as stark angles, exposed interior duct work, wood floors and open floor plans and gourmet kitchens.

An important part of Washington Metro's continued economic growth has been identifying ways to cross-pollinate community resources. A simpler way to label this is through the increasingly popular live, work and play model. Often applied to urban areas, the idea is to develop residential living, employment opportunities, retail and entertainment, all within close proximity. Hi-rise buildings have proven to be especially well-suited to the concept through mixed-use development. A prime example would be a building with a grocery store or restaurants on the ground floor with residences above.

Whether you're looking for an affordable entry-level one-bedroom condo in the $100,000 range or a four bedroom/five bath penthouse in Chevy Chase, Maryland for just under $9 million, there's no dearth of hi-rise opportunities throughout the Washington metropolitan area. These buildings generally offer parking and various amenities which might include concierge service, fitness and the ever-popular party room. There's also a sizable rental market for these birds eye view homes and again, with a wide range of lease rates.
