Delancey Lofts Condominium
Located at 1701 Kalorama Road, Washington, DC 20009 | Adams Morgan
Those searching for luxury lofts in Washington DC have plenty of options to consider. But the Delancey Lofts in Adams Morgan are hard to beat—if you can find an active listing, that is! There are only 48 units in the building and owners are rarely eager to sell. With such a prime location and cool modern stylings, can you blame them?
The Delancey Lofts were completed in 2005, making this a contemporary condo community in a neighborhood associated with colorful antique row houses. But sitting at just four stories, the building doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Indeed, the blocky tan brick structure has a minimalist architectural design that falls somewhere between late Art Deco and Brutalism, both of which are familiar DC themes.

Living in Fantastic Adams Morgan
Adams Morgan was one of the first Washington, DC neighborhoods to push the revitalization trend. It started way back in the late 1980s when the District was still dealing with urban decline. Nightclubs featuring live music and hip-hop DJs began attracting nighttime and weekend visitors to a community that had seen a major exodus of residents. Over the coming years, real estate buyers began to return, lured by row houses that could be purchased on the cheap, even if they were often in a state of disrepair.
The movement has continued unabated over the decades, with redevelopment and new construction such as the Delancey Lofts. Residents at 1701 Kalorama Road will find themselves within easy strolling distance of the famous 18th Street restaurant row, featuring perennial favorites as well as more recent additions. Check out Bourbon, Arepa House, Roofers Union, Himalayan Heritage Restaurant, Mintwood Palace, Jack Rose Dining Salon, Tail Up Goat, Federalist Pig and many more!
There’s also coffeehouses like Tryst and Songbyrd Record Café and Music House, Harris Teeter, The Studio DC for yoga, vintage clothing stores like Meeps, and more art galleries than you can throw a paintbrush at.
Getting Around the Adams Morgan Neighborhood
Adams Morgan is a community well-suited to walkers, bicyclists and even skateboarders or those who zoom around on pesky scooters. There’s also Uber and Lyft, as well as ZipCar, Capital Bikeshare and Maven ride sharing. The Columbia Heights Metro Station with Green and Yellow Line service is about .7 miles to the northeast, while the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan Metro with Red Line service is about .8 miles away, across the Duke Ellington Bridge.
This loft condominium building also has its own garage, a huge bonus in a city where parking spaces are often considered a luxury. So, if you’d like to avoid the trek to the closest Metro station, just wheel your own steel beast out of the garage and head south on either 14th or 16th Street, leading through neighborhoods like the U Street Corridor, Logan Circle and Dupont Circle, and Downtown DC, ultimately winding up at the National Mall and the White House.
