I was walking around the 14th and U st area and saw some pretty cool buildings. I had heard someone walking by and ask “are those apartments or condos”? Well, I would like to know how many of those who live here are renting apartments temporarily perhaps for work, and how many of these are purchased condos. As far as the expense, If I remember correctly from reading S Street Rising, I believe that this area would have been a bit cheaper than most of the DC areas at a time. it has clearly been gentrified since. It is hard to tell with this building style at this point if these are deluxe or more standard. However, judging from everything else built in this section of the neighborhood, these particular residences, appear to be on the less expensive side of the spectrum. I simply would like to learn more about why some parts of the city may be more expensive to live in than others.
