History Meets Luxury At The Colonel Apartments In Washington, DC

It’s no secret that Washington, DC is hot, hot, hot! It’s consistently ranked as one of the coolest (as well as most economically stable) cities in the country, and it’s only getting better.

As more and more people flock to our nation’s capital for the best shopping, dining, and entertainment in the entire country, the demand for new DC apartments is high. However, as with any other city, where you ultimately decide to hang your hat is all about location, location, location. From convenience to culture, which DC neighborhood you live in dictates much of your life, so why not choose one chock-full of everything you want – Shaw?

The burgeoning 9th Street corridor is smack dab in the middle of DC and, like much of the District, is steeped in American history. It also happens to be home to The Colonel, a luxury apartment building at 1250 9th Street NW in the illustrious 20001 zip code. If you’re thinking of making the (smart) move to DC, here’s what The Colonel can offer you.

Unmatched Features & Amenities

Whether you’re looking for a studio or a 2-bedroom apartment for rent in 20001, The Colonel has several floor plans for you to choose from. (Be sure to check availability online or by calling 202-803-6078.) Each one comes with 9’ ceilings, hardwood floors, W/D, and private balconies or terraces for you to truly feel at home in this renovated turn-of-the-century building.

Community-wide amenities abound as well. You need not worry about finding parking as the Shaw secret gets out and more people flock to it – garage parking is available for residents. There’s also 8,500 square feet of planned retail on the ground floor, so when the shopping itch hits, it’ll be easy to satisfy!

Residents will also be able to enjoy a rooftop deck with a firepit, kitchen, and theater for intimate gatherings or exclusive get-togethers. Only the finest features are available at The Colonel.

Convenient Location

In addition to garage parking, the Mt. Vernon Square/7th Street-Convention Center Metro stop (Yellow & Green Lines) lies just around the corner from your front door. Of course, with the plethora of activities in Shaw, you probably won’t need to go much further than where your own two feet carry you.

Several grocery stores (as well as dry cleaners and plenty of other service-based small businesses) also lie in close proximity to the Colonel apartments to provide residents with not only exciting entertainment options, but all the necessary details of life getting taken care of in a snap.

Fine Dining

Shaw has been named one of the top three neighborhoods to eat & drink in DC, and that should be no surprise to residents of The Colonel. Of course, tourist favorite Ben’s Chili Bowl is just around the corner, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. From craft beer to white tablecloth dining, there’s no shortage of options near these gorgeous DC apartments.

Right Proper, Ivy & Coney, Table, Corduroy, A&D, Rogue 24, Seasonal Pantry… we could go on. Basically, if you’re a DC foodie, The Colonel will put you right in the middle of the DC dining scene.

History & Culture

The Lincoln & Howard Theaters are both NW staples of entertainment and both happen to be in close relation to The Colonel. (Are you starting to see a pattern?) Of course who could forget Shaw’s most famous native, jazz legend Duke Ellington? The neighborhood surrounding The Colonel apartment is richly rooted in Washington history; in fact, the neighborhood name itself is named for Civil War Colonel Robert Gould Shaw of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. You don’t need to be a history buff to truly appreciate the historical significance of everything surrounding The Colonel.
