Parker Flats at Gage School

Parker Flats at Gage School is 3-building development - the renovation Washington DC's historic Gage School, built in 1904 and renovated under historic preservation guidelines, and construction of 2 new condo buildings. The new condos are four-story, wood-framed buildings with red brick facades, in keeping with the character of neighborhood. Located just east of Howard University, and set against architecturally appealing, if largely unrenovated, single family homes of the area. The Gage school offers 92 units - 33 in the original structure - priced originally from the upper $200k's for studios and from $339k for two beds (marked down from $445k). Delivery began in the summer of 2007 when the building was completed, with features including maple cabinets, high ceilings (up to 14 ft in some units), balconies, and both underground and above-grade parking available. Developed by Urban Realty Advisors, which was chosen by Howard University to convert the decaying building into housing. URA was later bought out by Monument Realty. Designed by Bonstra Haresign Architects, which oversaw the renovation of the historic school and designed the new buildings. Construction by James G Davis Construction began in March 2006. Real estate sales by McWilliams Ballard began in February 2006, but in 2008 switched to Urban Land, sales are ongoing.

Its a nice project, but the neighborhood is not as nice as I thought it would be when I bought here. Still feels a little scary at night while other parts of DC seem to have gotten better; this hasn't.
