H Street NE will soon have more condos.
The 16-unit building at 1115 H St. NE is near completion, according to a statement the developer released today (Monday).
The units starting in the mid-$300,000s are being marketed toward would-be renters by the firm Urban Pace.
“The new condos at 1115H will offer more District residents the opportunity to purchase their own homes in the hip H Street corridor for less than the cost of renting comparably sized apartments in many DC neighborhoods,” Urban Pace President Lynn Hackney said in a statement.
Floor plans for 1-bedroom units show about 650 square feet of space. The units feature recycled glass countertops, hardwood floors, GE stainless steel appliances and triple-glazed windows. Some of the units have Juliet balconies.
A listing by the firm Weichert shows a 651-square-foot unit asking $349,000.
The five-story building has a rooftop terrace, electric car charging stations and covered bike storage. The ground floor will have 3,000 square feet of retail space.
