One of Washington, DC’s hottest condo developments is the Flats at Union Row—an adaptive reuse project that is combined with the Warehouses at Union Row.

The Flats represent the most modern element in the community—a curvilinear eight-story complex presenting walls of glass, and some brick as well.

Located at 2125 14th Street in DC’s exciting U Street Corridor, the Flats at Union Row were delivered in 2007. This pet-friendly structure offers 208 residential units plus ground floor retail. The project is bordered by V and W Streets to the north and south, with a wide brick walkway and overhead catwalks serving to bridge the next-door Warehouse residences.
Condos for sale at the Flats are offered in a wide range of floor plans, from studios to top-of-the-line two bedroom and den penthouses.

List prices in this ultra-trendy building have recently ranged from around $400,000 to the million dollar range.
Inside, you’ll find open designs, massive window walls that must be seen to be appreciated, maple hardwood floors and exposed ductwork. The elongated modern kitchens run along one wall, with maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counters. The granite-top serving bars are minimalist and open below, adding to a European ambiance. Penthouse city homes also have private terraces.
Life at the Flats at Union Row is nothing if not luxurious and self-sustaining. The uber-modern lobbies are staffed twenty-four/seven with front desk and concierge.

But if you ever tire of being a hermit in your opulent condo community, you’ll find a wealth of nearby amenities, including some of the hottest bars and restaurants in DC, both along the U Street Corridor and running north on 14th Street. Among these are Saloon, the Brixton, the Gibson, the Codmother, Fainting Goat, Lost Society and Marvin, to name a few.
The Vibrant History of the U Street Corridor
The U Street Corridor is a trendy stretch of vibrant urban energy. And, it is a Washington neighborhood that has long been known for music, culture and diversity. Early residential and commercial development went hand-in-hand with the African-American community. The Twelfth Street YMCA which opened its doors in 1853 was the first all-black Y in the nation. In 1867, the all-black Howard University was founded. The 1860s brought an increase in construction that continued through the end of the century and into the early 1900s.
The neighborhood also overlaps with a large portion of the Shaw and Cardozo communities. In time, there would be hundreds of African-American owned businesses in the area, including stores, restaurants, hotels, law and medical offices, and performing arts venues. Many prominent black writers, educators, attorneys and politicians lived in the area. The 20th century also brought a surge in entertainment, with “Black Broadway” playing host to legendary performers such as Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Pearl Bailey, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Cab Calloway, Sarah Vaughn, Lionel Hampton, Miles Davis and others. This tradition lasted all the way until the late 1960s.
But today, after a period of urban decline during the 1970s and 1980s, the U Street Corridor is again alive with a new era of vitality. Original historic venues like the Howard Theatre and the Lincoln Theatre are restored and open for business, while some restaurants like Ben’s Chili Bowl have never closed their doors. The African American Civil War Museum and the African American Civil War Memorial pay homage to black soldiers from the War Between the States. And the U Street Corridor itself, like so many other neighborhoods in Washington, has seen a reverse residential exodus with people from all walks of life returning in droves.
This is no longer a community that is home to any one culture. One of the most walkable neighborhoods in the city with a Walk Score of 97 is a fun and lively place with boutique retailers, bookstores, coffeehouses, jazz clubs, bars and restaurants and museums. Mass transit is also a snap with the U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo station as well as the Shaw-Howard University station.
