With a majority of the new residential developments seemingly going up in long-neglected areas of the city, it’s always a pleasant surprise to see new condos being delivered in long-established and desired neighborhoods. This past week saw the beginning of sales at one such development: The Mount Pleasant, located at 3155 Mount Pleasant Avenue, just steps away (and above) the shops of this street and near Adams Morgan. This condo conversion of a three-story, 19-unit apartment building originally built in 1915, is owned by JGJ Properties, LLC, and was awarded the “Best Commercial Renovation” by Historic Mount Pleasant (HMP), and features studios and 1-bedroom units (some with vaulted 14-foot ceilings) starting at $169,000. Another perk: Wireless Internet for your surfing pleasure.
