Matrix Condominiums - Washington DC

Something old and something new—that’s what you’ll get at the Matrix condominiums in the heart of Logan Circle. There’s 40 residences here with both flats and authentic lofts, ranging in size from 800 to 1,571 square feet. This is urban living with a very stylish vibe. But the building started out as something very different.

The original component in this mixed-use development was an automobile showroom for Nash Motors dating back to 1916. Imagine the old horseless carriages in the showroom windows way back in the day! Nearly a century later, Holiday Construction, along with well-known DC architects Eric Colbert & Associates, restored and renovated the original structure and added a six-story tower, resulting in a modern complex that retained the façade from the original Art Deco building.

Located at 1529 14th Street NW in Washington DC’s 20005 zip code, the Matrix was completed in 2007. There’s retail space at the street level and a variety of floor plans for the residences. The feeling inside is very light and airy with full height windows, hardwood floors, exposed cream-colored concrete block walls with inlaid tile, and lots of white-on-white—all adding up to bright and modern environments. The kitchens are open to the living spaces with light granite counters, GE Profile stainless steel appliances, European-style cabinets and track lighting.

The bathrooms are similarly well appointed with lots of tiling, honed limestone showers and Hans Grohe fixtures. Select residences have private outdoor spaces, including penthouses which have their own rooftop terraces.

Speaking of the roof, all tenants in this pet-friendly condominium get to enjoy an awesome terrace with slate tile flooring that segues to a manicured roof lawn area. With a huge gas grille, lounge furniture, dining tables and oversized planters, this getaway rooftop experience offers a great view and a very contemporary ambiance.

While condos for sale at the Matrix don’t often come to market, recent prices have ranged from $469,000 to $869,000. The building enjoys a terrific location, right next-door to Le Diplomate and steps away from many other great bars and restaurants along 14th Street and throughout the area in general. There’s also a Whole Foods, the Studio Theatre, Starbucks, Dolcezza, Slipstream, ACKC Chocolatiers, Vida Fitness and so much more in a 1-2 block radius.
