Lovejoy Lofts For Sale in Washington DC

The Lovejoy Lofts in the Capitol Hill Historic District share a particular commonality with many other condo conversions – education. For a variety of reasons, there aren't the same number of old existing factories and warehouses in DC, as in other major cities. For this reason, developers have turned to former schools in droves, including the Bryan, Carbery, Logan and Lenox School Lofts. The Lovejoy was originally built in 1901 as the Elijah P. Lovejoy Elementary School, serving the African American community.

While active listings at the Lovejoy only come up sporadically, buyers interested in lofts for sale in our nation's capital may also want to look at other loft developments

The Lovejoy School was expanded in 1908 and 1923 and functioned as a school until the late 1980's. In 1999 it was sold and and ambitious period of development followed. The builders worked with the Historic Preservation Review Board and came up with a plan for 54 residential lofts that faithfully preserved and renovated the original structure, making use of exposed duct work, brick walls and an amazing array of windows, including the classic large multi-paned school variety as well as overhead transoms.
