LoveJoy Lofts For Sale

440 12th Street NE, Washington D.C.

Historic schoolhouses that have converted to condos for sale are fairly common in Washington, DC, owing to the number of buildings that once served educational needs before eventually falling vacant. The Lovejoy Lofts in the Capitol Hill Historic District are a prime example. With 54 one and two-bedroom loft units, the structure is the result of an ambitious renovation and redevelopment process.

First built as the Elijah P. Lovejoy Elementary School in 1901, the school was named for a prominent newspaper editor and abolitionist who was murdered by a pro-slavery mob in 1837. The school served the African-American community and was expanded twice, operating as a school as recently as the 1980s. But in 1999 the building was sold and underwent a lengthy development process during which Winter Properties worked with the Historic Preservation Board. The project was completed in 2005.

Other notable schoolhouse condo conversions on Capitol Hill include the Carbery School and the Logan School.
