Buying New: 11Park in Northwest Washington
By Michele Lerner
Converted from a former office building, the 32 condos at 11Park, 1628 11th St. NW in Washington, include 24 flats and eight townhouses.
The two-level townhouses are accessible only from an interior corridor, not the street. The original lower floors of the building were preserved.
The building has 20 garage parking spaces, priced at $40,000 to $50,000, accessed by an auto lift elevator from the alley behind the condo.
The living rooms have open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling windows. Washington Post 10.07.17 https://www.washingtonpost.com/realestate/buying-new--11park-in-northwest-washington/2017/10/02/42796316-a514-11e7-ade1-76d061d56efa_gallery.html?utm_term=.322ba0d57489

The kitchen has a niche for the dining area, Caesarstone counters and upgraded appliances.
The unit has a stacked washer and dryer in the hallway.
