Jenkins Row Condominiums


Jenkins Row, 1391 Pennsylvania Ave., SE, Washington DC
Jenkins Row was originally designed as an apartment building, converting after the start of construction, and both finishes and amenities reflect the original intent (more amenities, less expensive finishes). Contracting problems forced the delay of construction, and many of the original buyers to back out. The 247-unit wood-framed building finally delivered in September of 2007, with prices starting from $250,000 for a studio and from $378,000 for one bedroom, prices that ultimately went down considerably.

Located adjacent to the Potomac Avenue Metro, two metro stops from the Capitol Hill Office Buildings, Jenkins Row features a fitness center, front desk receptionist, underground parking, and encircled central courtyard with water fountains. In 2008 a Harris Teeter opened on the first floor. The project was built by JPI of Texas, which later disbanded its DC operations, and designed by SK&I Architectural Design Group. The building was designed to look less massive than it is, with varying architectural styles on the facade.

Hopefully a soon to be ex-tenant at Jenkins Row. The place looks nice and is at a very convenient location but the soundproofing is minimal. Add to the fact that most of the residents can't seem to understand the concept of city living and a pet-friendly condo and complain a lot about the amount of "noise" the community makes (ie dogs barking, trucks on the street, people walking). If you are looking for a friendly community, this is not the place to be.

I am part of the reason this person left. I've lived in many condos and will no longer tolerate rude dog owners. As a responsible older person with an early AM job, I make sure we try and keep the noise down. If you are a privileged drunken Millenial who thinks a dog has more rights than a human, I will be so on your case, so look elsewhere to live.
