Great place to live in River North!
Great quiet place to live in the River North community close to all the restaurants, bars, etc. Only complaints are that there is no rooftop or communal lounge area + slow elevator + little far from nearest train station. Also love that there's a dog park right next door.
Great building, great location
The Apolline is an older building but it is a very inclusive community in an excellent location. Staff members are friendly and helpful and neighbors are kind. Location is close to metro and in the heart of Dupont Circle.
Convenient & clean Manhattan location
So happy with my experience here - I didn't want the fratty environment of Murray Hill, but I wanted the convenience of a doorman building. There's not a ton to do in this neighborhood (though it's "up and coming" - SoulCycle and sweetgreen have moved in), but that makes it nice and quiet which is ideal for the teacher life. It's super close to all subway stops imaginable, so my commute to Crown Heights is less than 20 minutes by train.
I enjoyed the two years I lived at 67 Wall. The neighborhood is great and the doormen are very nice. The common area could use a refresh but the gym is nice. I would recommend living there. The 1BR unit I had was a bit small in terms of overall square feet but the location and amenities made up for it. No roof deck really.
Safe and great for families
We love the area because it feels very safe for us and our children. The area has great schools at a walkable distance and the building is also very close to public transit. Wall Street is around the corner!
My apartment at the 16th floor has high ceilings and has good sunlight.
Our apartment is amazing. Lots of room. Tons of light. Not cheap but good value.
Older residence but safe and great location
Doorman is great. The location cannot be beat. I feel safe in my unit where I dont feel like I need to lock my door, even for living in DC. The residence are mostly older families. the gym is really bad. its dark, smelly and generally seems unclean. There is a roof, but does not really contain a social area or pool.
Nice quiet neighborhood, no Metro station but reasonably easy to get around by bus/walking/biking. Management is OK but takes a while to get things fixed around the building. Decent amenities (pool, gym, doorman 24/7). Apartment is well laid out with lots of storage space.
The Apolline has been a great place to live.
Modern and in a great location
Not great metro accessibility in Glover Park, so I have to take the bus to get into DC. However, there are a ton of different buses that come down Wisconsin so I never have to wait longer than 5 minutes for a bus. Otherwise, the building is relatively modern and has a great location (between a Whole Foods and a Safeway). There's a pretty good gym in the building, plus a Balance Gym about two hundred feet away from the building.
This building is in the perfect location but the condos are old and I had a lot of trouble with air conditioning and heat control. Also the price was too high for the quality of the space. If you need to be in Dupont, you probably can't beat this place, but if you are looking for a fun, hip, neighborhood with cool things to do and more affordable apartments with amenities, i would look at shaw, u street, adams morgan, chinatown areas.
Great spot, poor communication
Great location and beautiful building. Poor responses by management, but recently switched management to a more responsive person. There have been some hot water issues and it is tough to find parking if your condo doesn't come with it. The front desk has high turnover.
Great rooftop and staff in a convenient location
A large condo building in Dupont Circle, the Apolline features apartments of varying sizes and designs (from uber-modern studios to older apartments with original elements - i.e. older tiled bathrooms) - each apartment is unique. The rooftop is the selling point of the building- panoramic views of the city and great layout for hosting friends or relaxing on your own around a small heated pool. The front desk staff are always friendly and accommodating.
Overall - great location, a number of options within sizes and budgets, best rooftop deck in the city and friendly staff.
The building is quiet, in a great location, with decent amenities. Some apartments are newly renovated. They're well laid out. There's underground parking, which is extremely safe and practical. It's a short walk to Whole Foods, Safeway, and Georgetown. The Georgetown shuttle stops right in front of the building every 15 minutes or so.
Observatory Condominiums of Georgetown
I absolutely love living here! My unit comes with access to the gym in the building, the outdoor pool (open in the summer), parking in the garage below the building, ~3 minute walk to the grocery store, and ~12 minute walk to school. The people who work at the front desk in the lobby are so friendly! It is also a quiet environment, which is great for studying!
