Washington, DC – April 23, 2013 – Simpson Property Group®, LP has announced the opening of 14W, a community of 231 luxury apartments in the vibrant U Street neighborhood of Washington, DC. The new property, designed by Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, Inc. (HOK) and Davis Carter Scott Ltd, offers residents large, European-inspired units featuring views of the City and within walking distance to exciting urban experiences.
From efficient city studios priced just under $2,000 to one and two-bedroom units with den options up to $4,700, 14W residences are carefully planned to bring an unusual level of design quality and attention to detail in every residence. In addition to being fully data ready at move-in, apartment features include:
While apartment shoppers expect well-dressed models, 14W takes design to a new level with shopping-ready models decorated by a top nationally known furnishings company. After experiencing the fit and form of a 14W model, residents will be able to purchase their own set of furnishings directly from the supplier.
14W takes on-site food options to a new level with Chef Mike Isabella’s newest restaurants, Kapnos and G Sandwich Shop. Regional “sweetlife” chain, Sweetgreen is also located on the first floor of the building. Several of the newly animated retail spaces are showcased in the preservation and renovation of the historic townhome facades along 14th Street. In addition to a modern fitness and yoga studio, the iconic Anthony Bowen YMCA is reborn in 44,000 square feet of the new development with an indoor pool and wellness center. Additional community amenities include:
14W Manager, Jennifer No, of Simpson Property Group, spoke to the excitement of opening a new development in one of the City’s hottest submarkets, saying, “Residents of 14W will be part of an authentic community experiencing an exciting revival. From 14W, they will be able to hop the Metro to work, walk to numerous restaurants and markets and explore a vibrant arts and music scene. Simpson prides itself on apartments that provide “a way to live” beyond “a place to live” and we are confident 14W will live up to our standards.” Simpson Property Group, was recently awarded the coveted 2012 “A List” Award for Excellence in Customer Service.
