Luxury Living at The Columbia

In a city known for condominiums with unusual backstories, The Columbia is no exception. Built in 1918 and designed by Nathan C. Wyeth, the Italian Renaissance-style three-building complex was originally known as The Columbia Hospital for Women.

These days, the former medical facility houses 215 luxury residences along with 28,000 square feet of commercial space including a Trader Joe’s.

Imagine the convenience of heading downstairs for frozen enchiladas and peanut butter pretzels? There’s also a swanky roof deck with swimming pool, 24/7 front desk and concierge service, a state-of-the-art fitness center, billiards room and a large club room for social gatherings.   

The reconstruction process involved adding two new wings to the original structure and incorporating former hospital corridors into living space. These remarkable residences feature open floorplans, exquisite modern kitchens, oversized windows, hardwood floors, and in some cases, balconies. The ninth floor is reserved for two-story penthouses with private rooftop terraces.

Ultra Chic West End At Your Doorstep

The West End is an infinitely walkable neighborhood, surrounded by Georgetown to the northwest, Foggy Bottom to the south and Dupont Circle to the east. The West End dates all the way back to Pierre L’Enfant’s original blueprint for the District. A modern revitalization plan initiated by city planners in 1972 led to a spate of new development, including towering condominium cocoons of luxury.

That opens up a rich tapestry of attractions and amenities with theater, movies, restaurants and upscale shopping boutiques. This is certainly one of DC’s most sought-after places to live with a palpable urban energy and sophistication. From black-tie events at the Kennedy Center to hipster flicks at the West End Independent Art House Cinema, choices abound! And if you tire of dining at some of the best eateries in Washington, you can fetch groceries from Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.
