Washington DC Penthouses For SaleWhile Washington DC is best known for Colonial homes and Victorian rowhouses, there is also a tradition of grand apartment buildings with rich architectural design. Many of these old buildings eventually converted to co-ops and condos and they all feature penthouse units. The construction of large multi-unit buildings never stopped and in fact, the trend has picked up considerable steam over the last two decades. Much of this is due to a strategic revitalization effort through city planners and commercial developers. With available space at a premium it makes sense to build up rather than out -- hence the proliferation of high-rises.

Penthouses are available in many parts of Washington DC, as cooperatives or condo sales. There are a number of distinctive older building throughout the district including the Alban Towers at Massachusetts and Wisconsin Avenues, the Balfour on U-Street, the Wyoming in Kalorama, the Lafayette in Shaw, the Gladstone in Logan Circle and the Bryan School Lofts on Capitol Hill. While penthouse units in DC’s historic buildings are highly coveted, there has also been a rush to secure the top floors at the many new developments along the U-Street Corridor and other downtown areas. One advantage to newer buildings is that they don’t need renovating, are equipped with of the desired luxury amenities, and are in close proximity to retail, dining and entertainment.

Among the many newer buildings along the U-Street Corridor are the Beauregard, 2020 Lofts, the Floridian, the Moderno, Rhapsody, Langston Lofts and a new boutique building named the Lacey. Washington DC penthouse units are also available throughout such neighborhoods as H-Street, the Navy Yard, NoMa, Penn Quarter, Columbia Heights and a new waterfront neighborhood known as The Wharf.. While small penthouse units can sometimes be had in the $300 thousand range they are rare and far between. Generally penthouses for sale start around $500,000 and rising well into seven figures. Living at the top has its price.
