Additional Info About the Madrigal Lofts in DC
The one and two-bedroom residences at Madrigal Lofts have recently listed in a range between $379,900 and $765,000. That said, units don’t come to market often. These attractive lofts are quite spacious, from 720 to 1445 square feet. Many of the units have dens and all feature balconies. The rounded wraparound corner terraces are especially appealing.
Inside you’ll find open designs, honey maple hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling commercial grade windows and exposed duct work. The luxury baths have porcelain soaking tubs, and the designer kitchens are completely open to the living space, with granite counters, stainless steel appliances and oversized maple cabinets.
This pet-friendly building also has a huge contemporary lobby with a secured front entry, and a twenty-four hour front desk and concierge service.

The Madrigal Lofts are just steps from Chinatown and Capital One Arena, and also right by the shops and restaurants at City Vista. That means the recently opened Safeway, Vida Fitness, and so much more. The building is also convenient for those toiling in the government center—the US Capitol is just six blocks south!
Downtown’s Mount Vernon Through the Ages
The Madrigal Lofts are located in a part of the city that has seen large scale changes over the years. First, it’s worth noting that there are actually two side-by-side Mount Vernon neighborhoods—Mount Vernon Square which refers both to the public square and a small area immediately adjacent, and next-door Mount Vernon Triangle which is both a business improvement district and a community improvement district.
In the early 1800s, Mount Vernon Square was divided into triangular shapes through the intersection of New York and Massachusetts Avenues. The through-ways were removed in 1882 by public demand, due to noisy traffic from horses and carriages through the park. Residential development throughout the 1800s and early 1900s tended toward relatively modest row houses and smaller apartment buildings, although there were some larger structures along the main boulevards. But by the post-World War II era, many of the buildings were falling into decline, leading to demolition and redevelopment. The Civil Rights riots and fires of the late 1960s led to further urban blight, while the construction of the I-395 which terminates at New York Avenue and K Street, also resulted in the removal of many older structures.
Today, redevelopment of the area has taken a different tenor than some of the efforts of the past. The establishment of the Mount Vernon Square and Mount Vernon Triangle Historic Districts has resulted in the preservation of around 50 or so antique structures, a small amount of what once stood here. But the combined revitalization efforts along with more exacting standards from city planners and officials has resulted in a vibrant and visually interesting collection of new buildings, interspersed by the remaining historic structures from centuries past.
Delivered in 2007, Madrigal Lofts is often viewed as one of the linchpins of the current redevelopment trend in the Mount Vernon community. The large number of units and the wealth of amenities and ground floor retail helped inspire even larger complexes in the area, such as the live-work-play communities of City Vista and CityCenterDC.
Transit Options in the Mt. Vernon Area
Residents at Madrigal Lofts have the convenience of secure parking, something viewed as a major perk for the densely populated Downtown DC area. The close proximity of New York and Massachusetts Avenues, as well as the I-395, makes it super easy to get in and out of the city, or to different parts of the District. But for those who prefer public transit, there are several Metro stations within a three minute walk from Madrigal Lofts. Those are: Mount Vernon Square/7th Street-Convention Center; Gallery Place-Chinatown and Union Station (which also has Amtrak and bus service).
But don’t forget how easy and fun it is just to walk around the neighborhood. This is considered the fourth-most walkable neighborhood in all of Washington with a Walk Score of 97, Transit Score of 100 and Bike Score of 91. And in such a visually and culturally exciting city, walking and gazing at the sights, not to mention dining and shopping, offers plenty of appeal.
