Sky-Low Prices in Randle Highlands



Just days after the District went public with a proposal for the redevelopment of the St. Elizabeths Hospital campus, PERS Development, LLC is opening the doors on the Sky DC condo development - "apartment homes" in Southeast's Randle Highlands neighborhood. It's a move they hope will dovetail with the Department of Homeland Security's proposed move to the area and draw "more working class individuals...towards this part of the District."

The $4 million development at 1620 29th Street SE got its Sky DC moniker from the so-called "million dollar view" available from the rooftop deck. Totaling 17,000 square feet, PERS is offering amenities like built-in iPod docks, bamboo floors and temperature controlled wine coolers to court "new homeowners and young professionals" – a cause reflected in the relatively low $200,000 price points for the condos. The project was designed by Bethesda based architects, Easta Inc.

This is PERS’ fourth project in the District and the developer plans on branding it just as they have the others – with “a signature waterfall in the front exterior”. Furthermore, the developer describes itself as the “Carmax of Condo Buying” - due to their “no haggle, lower than market prices” – a point you can debate in person when they hold their second open house this Sunday.

Post your comment about this project below.

bravo on not calling the area "anacostia"!

but i have to make a comment on saying that DHS will be moving to this "area".

randle highlands is MILES away from st. e's. quite literally, the distance is almost as far as georgetown is from tenleytown. it looks like that quote came straight from the developer, so i just feel like they should be called out for calling that "close"

This is one of the best looking buildings I have seen in Hillcrest. I wish we had more developers like them in our ward. Their building has a roof top deck, parking, Gym, and extra storage all under $200,000. Wow.

The building is beautifull. Its like a downtown condo in ward 7. Great development. It was well needed. That building was a mess. I hope they made their money. They have done a beautiful job.
