My review

10 management rating Reviewed by on

Great place to live, quiet, very responsive management, very spacious floor plan with all utilities included except electric and Wi-Fi.

Take an 8 minute walk to Georgia avenue, hop on 70 or 79 bus and you are right at school.

Environment is ideal because it’s walking distance to many stores including Walmart and you can also hop on the 54 bus to Columbia heights or U street for social life and shopping.

Using the elevator during COVID sucks. Nothing about the apartment is outstanding, but no complaints. They're good about tracking your packages that come in and responding to maintenance requests.

fantastic location
20-25 min from GW
1 block from CVS
3 blocks from Safeway or Whole Foods
5 min from Dupont Circle
10-15 min from 14th / U Street

The building is a bit old, and the decor is very dated. There is a very small gym which costs $5/month to use. There is laundry in the basement.

There are a variety of layouts within each apartment type. The kitchen is very small. They recently installed an Amazon locker in the basement. There is also a seasonal rooftop.

Great location, not as great people

4 management rating Reviewed by on

The apartment is convenient to Metro - 2 blocks from NoMa station (red line) and there are bus stops for 90, 96, 80, and P6 either in front of or within 5 blocks of the building. Grocery stores, CVS and eateries 1 block away. The building itself is really nice. It's a newer building and has an indoor basketball court, gym, free exercise classes, rooftop deck and pool with perfect views of DC, sky lounge, club room, movie theatre, reservable conference room, and business center. There is also Wi-Fi in all amenity spaces. However, the downfall is management and maintenance can be really slow to respond and sometimes do not respond to requests for repairs, etc. at all. Also, some of the neighbors can be difficult and unrulely.

Management can be a bit slow with responses, but often can speed it up by often reaching out if you need something. Any actual problems in my apartment have been taken care of very quickly. No dishwasher in apartments but laundry downstairs and great price for location right next to Logan Circle. Only utilities you pay for are electricity and internet

Beautiful old DC apartment in quiet Lanier Heights

Great apartment with very good value for the location. Apartment is also rent controlled so rent is not raised significantly from year to year. Management is very responsive. Beautiful old building with large apartment floor plans.

It's okay here...

3 management rating Reviewed by on

It's okay here, I don't really like the building at all. Looking for a new place. Although it is really close to the bus stop and fairly close to me school ( it is about a 15-20 minute walk). Overall I guess the only thing that I have to complain about is that I really don't think the rent is proportionate to what I have. But, that's most of the places in this neighborhood.

Great location

This apartment is in a great location and that was the most important item for me in choosing the unit. Great management and amenities as well. The building is very close to the metro and is spacious and open with a lot of natural light. Overall, great value and well-maintained!

Big positives for 1707 Columbia Rd NW include:

- Location!! The building is easy walking distance to 18th St., Columbia Heights, the National Zoo, Rock Creek Park, Mt. Pleasant, and Woodley Park. There are two grocery stores within one block's distance. Columbia Heights metro is 10 min away and Woodley Park metro is 15 min. Plus, there are multiple bus stops just a few steps out the door.

- Amazing staff

- Beautiful wood floors in apartments and very nice building lobby

- The bedroom and den in our 1-bedroom apartment are massive.

Do not recommend

1 management rating Reviewed by on

The building is beautiful, but there are routinely major building issues that take a long time to fix--elevators break all the time, a pipe burst that flooded half the building, the air conditioning broke for a week in August, the door to the garage just broke which led to major parking issues. And when an issue does arise, management does not communicate effectively with the residents nor do they seem to understand that the breakdowns cause issues for residents.

The neighborhood is unsafe: a stray bullet hit the building, there have been multiple shootings within blocks of the building.

While the amenities are wonderful, and the building is pretty, it is ultimately not worth the cost. If I could go back, I would never have moved in here.

Economical and Great Value

8 management rating Reviewed by on

As a graduate student, I don't have a lot of disposable income. The Loft at Sheridan Station is extremely accommodating for my budget. The apartments are spacious and beautiful. Brand new appliances and I feel safe in my building. The management is not that responsive but that are extremely helpful when you can reach them. My neighbors are supportive and they go out their way to assist me. I like the community feel and the fact that I am getting a bang for my buck. I'd be lying if I didn't say things were sketchy at times but I still love it! This apartment is best for someone who is looking to save and likes aesthetically pleasing looking buildings.

This apartment building is brand new and beautiful! The corner apartment that we have has tons of windows and ample sunlight. There is an irndoor basketball court downstairs and a huge gym. There is no pet rent at this building and there is a huge rooftop deck with a pool. Great breathtaking skyline.

Happy in NoMa

I moved into 2M Street just over a year ago, and I feel I've made a solid decision. What attracted me to 2M compared to other nearby buildings with similar amenities is that the building does not charge fees on top of the rent for facilities, amenities, or services like garbage removal. Access to all the building's amenities -- shared lounge and theater spaces, complete gym and indoor half basketball court, enclosed courtyard and roof deck, and rooftop swimming pool -- is included in the rent for the resident and up to two guests. There's also a great bike storage room with a bike tune-up station. The building is centrally located with easy access to all forms of transit, and I am happy living here without a car (and not having to pay for parking). I also love the fact that 2M is a LEED Gold certified environmentally friendly building, and its good insulation and double-paned windows keep my monthly electric bill (which includes heating and air conditioning) to between $30 and $40 year-round. The rent is quite high by national standards, but is competitive with similarly-sized apartments in similar new buildings in DC.
