Good Amenities but high prices and questionable management

I love the location- right tin Shaw and new retail opening up all around. The area isn't the safest, but having the doorman and security helps. the building's amenities are nice, but not over the top. The apartment itself is great- very modern and spacious. The rent is high considering the area and the level of amenities. Additionally, the management team is nice but not very professional. Things likes incorrect charges on bills or issues with the building are not handled promptly.

Melissa

I love the layout of the kitchen and living room-- and the size of the bathroom-- but this apartment is way too small (square footage) for the price. There is little/no storage or closet space, and the bedroom can barely fit a Queen bed and dresser. The floor looks nice at first, but upon second glance is cheaply laid laminate that peels up in sections. Not worth the $3.50/sq foot (includes parking and pet rent). The management staff have been hit or miss. I have recently had some great interactions, but also had some pretty crappy interactions in the past. I would not re-sign for another year.

Brand new apartment with management flaws

I like this apartment a lot. We have a beautiful terrace, rooftop pool, gym, etc. However, management isn't great at keeping things in order at all. Broken lights in the hallway will stay unfixed for months. The firepit on the terrace has been out of order for at least a month thus far. The management doesn't do anything *special* for the residents in terms of monthly events for socialization. The appliances are shoddy, the bike storage is an extra $15 a month, etc. Now, it's nice, but for the amount that one pays to live in a "luxury" apartment, you might want to try elsewhere. The huge bonuses are living in between 2 metro stops and a block from giant.

Great location, nice amenities

I'm pretty happy living here. The location is fantastic, a block from Shaw Metro station, close to tons of bars and restaurants, lots of buses and bike lanes. The building amenities are nice, there's a small swimming pool on the roof and a terrace overlooking the city with nice views that doesn't get too crowded (usually).

Good value for area

Building is cheaper than others across the street. Overall quality is okay, but it's new so very few maintenance issues, and the maintenance department is responsive. Leasing office is not very professional.

I would recommend to people looking in DC

Great area and lovely building!

I love the front desk staff and the building maintenance staff is prompt and very helpful. The apartments have great views and are spacious. Utilities are not included, which is definitely a downside. Residents pay electric and water.

Love this place

The Jefferson Marketplace Building is great. I love the amenities and the location is unbelievable. Although the apartment is smaller than what I was used to in Tennessee, I think it is a great value. Location, Location, Location. Jefferson Marketplace is great.

Excellent Location, Solid Building

Love the location, the rooftop grills and pool are very nice. Management has been pretty good so far. The apartments have all new energy efficient appliances with in-unit washer and dryer. I also enjoy the club lounge downstairs, it has tvs, a pool table, and a bocce ball court.

Brand new building in great location

The Jefferson Marketplace is a great place to live, especially if you love the Shaw neighborhood. It is about a block and half from a Giant, the metro, and a number of bars and restaurants. The apartment building is new, so the apartments have nice, new stainless and marble furnishings. We especially love the terrace for hanging out and I'm sure the rooftop pool will be nice once that opens!

About Shaw

One of the city's oldest neighborhoods, Shaw is a cocktail of history, entertainment culture and of course, food. This neighborhood brings performing arts from the Howard Theatre and Ethiopian food in Little Ethiopia. It also nurtures a sense of gratefulness in the African-American Civil War Memoria...

Shaw Reviews

11 reviews
I don't exactly feel safe in this area and I avoid walking around at night because it can be dangerous. U street gets crowded and can be enjoyable/convenient for nightlife. In the mornings walking to class is fine. There are a lot of homeless on the street.
I enjoyed living in Shaw. Pretty close to everything and it's a lively neighborhood.
Just be safe.
The immediate surrounding neighborhood is brand new and lively. The Shaw/ U Street Neighborhood in general can still be a bit gritty, like many parts of the city, but it’s undergoing lots of new construction, with new restaurants and retail stores popping up. Overall, I’ve felt very safe living here in the city and in my complex.
Hip & trendy neighborhood
The neighborhood is rapidly becoming gentrified, for good and bad. When we moved in, the Giant grocery store was brand new; previously, the area had been a "food desert." There was a shooting on our street the day we moved in, and there continues to be a lot of targeted gang violence. People living in subsidized housing nearby, and have lived there for decades, are slowly being moved out of the city, and new expensive condo buildings are springing up in their wake. Expensive restaurants have filled the neighborhood at a rapid pace in the past 2-3 years, and the juxtaposition between the rich and poor is increasingly apparent.
It’s undergoing gentrification so there are ups and downs. It’s close to everything- downtown dc, the U street party life and the Chinatown area, as well as a lot of federal jobs. Shaw itself has a lot of new bars and restaurants so it is pretty great.
great place to live. so many bars and new restuarants popping up. also close to sooo many ethiopian restaurants which is awesome. great coffee, right next to the metro which is super convenient. close to everything really! takes less than 10 minutes to get the 14th st. only a few blocks to U street, and 15 min walk to columbia heights/dupont!
