The Delancey Lofts - Washington DC

In a city that is so historic by nature, the Delancey Lofts represent a much more modern feel. With a prime Adams Morgan location this low-rise four story building was delivered in 2005 and offers 48 luxury loft-style condominium units. With soaring 12-foot ceilings, exposed industrial-style ductwork and innovative space-saving features, this is contemporary living in the big city.

Located at 1701 Kalorama Road at the corner of 17th Street, this boxy building composed of different shades of brick sits directly across from Harris Teeter. Just grab your groceries, hop back across the street, enter your super modern kitchen and prepare dinner. Said meal can then be enjoyed on your own private terrace.

The Delancey Lofts feature hardwood floors with strips of varying natural hues, creating striking patterns. There’s exposed brick, giant floor-to-ceiling warehouse style windows and barn door room dividers. With either one or two-bedroom models, or one bedroom with an adaptable study, these roomy residences range from 800 to 1,200 square feet.

Open floor plans include European-style kitchens that run along a single wall with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, allowing for a seamless transition from cooking to living space. The lofts are also open, with five steps typically leading up to sleeping quarters. The baths are also quite stylish with their marble vanities and big glass showers.

You can also add walk-in closets, oodles of extra storage, stacked front-loading washer/dryers in closets and the aforementioned balconies—designed in elongated contemporary style with slate floors and steel grid overhangs.

Residents also enjoy garage parking, a rooftop garden, elevators and security. The location is also a huge selling point—just one block from Meridian Hill Park with its unique terraced waterfalls and two blocks from the fabulous 18th Street restaurant row. Stroll to favorite hotspots like Tryst, the DINER, Smoke & Barrel, Roofer’s Union and so many more.

This particular part of the neighborhood has become a hotspot for new boutique upscale condo buildings—the 1700 Kalorama Lofts are on the other side of the road and Adams Row is two blocks over.

There’s also plenty of transportation options, whether it’s walking to the U Street, Woodley Park or Columbia Heights Metro stations, or simply pulling your vehicle out the garage and heading down 16th street to the White House or Capitol Hill. Or be that socially conscious person that you are and ride your bike!
