Rainbow Lofts For Sale in Washington DC
Located on Church Street in Washington DC's 20005 zip code is one of the area's more interesting adaptive reuse projects. 1445 Condominium, more commonly known as Rainbow Lofts, still bears the bright red letters associated with its former incarnation - Rainbow Auto Body Shop Painting Company. Founded in 1927, the brick auto shop in Logan Circle was in continuous business until 2002 when it was sold to Walnut Street Development. Architect Steve Dickens was brought in and a 17-month arduous renovation project began.
In 2004, Rainbow Lofts was delivered. Featuring 21 genuine lofts, units range from 613 to 1,200 square feet with prices running from the $200,000's up to the high $700,000's. The lofts have to be seen to be appreciated, with 13-foot concrete ceilings, towering factory windows, gleaming hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and ductwork, and built-in fireplaces in select units. The kitchens are of the highest gourmet quality. To learn more about Rainbow lofts for sale in Washington DC, start browsing the active MLS listings below:
