Additional Info About Langston Hughes Condominium Residences
Situated at 1390 V Street NW by the corner of 14th Street NW, the 20009 zip code, the Langston building is just a half block north of U Street and one block from the U Street Metro. From the street, the striking facade with its balconies and glass bays presents a look not dissimilar to other creations. The building is named for poet/playwright Langston Hughes (1902-1967) who grew up in the neighborhood.
Inside, the 82 one and two-bedroom residences offer stark modern luxury, with soaring ceilings, exposed ductwork, giant window walls, and bamboo floors. The square footage generally runs between 594 and 1083 square feet, and all units come with either balconies or solarium-style glass bay porches. The cooking stations are chef-grade and completely open, resembling modern office space with kitchen appliances.
Also worth noting is the roof terrace, as well as an additional second-floor recreation terrace. Langston Lofts also has underground parking. And to complete the picture of total convenience and uber-hipness, the local Busboys and Poets bookstore/café/coffeehouse is actually in-house, residing in the building’s ground-level floor.
Other local urban conveniences include a Whole Foods, a Harris Teeter, Vida Fitness, and CrossFit Praxis. Plus, the sublimely cool Meridian Hill Park is within walking distance. And last but certainly not least is all the bars and restaurants running along U Street and continuing north on 14th Street. Those include Marvin, Eatonville, Fainting Goat, The Gibson, and so many more.
