WASHINGTON — One of D.C.’s priciest new apartment buildings — Developer Eastbanc’s Apartments at Westlight — is now leasing, and the price to hang your hat in the newest apartment building in D.C.’s West End is not cheap.
Apartments at Westlight, at the intersection of 23rd Street and L Street, NW, overlooks Washington Circle. The 93-unit building is part of developer Eastbanc’s 328,000-square-foot, mixed use, 10-story building that also includes the brand-new, 21,000-square-foot West End Library.
Rents range from $2,750 a month for a 562-square-foot studio to $13,260 a month for a 2,400-square-foot, three-bedroom corner residence with views of the Circle and the District skyline.
What kind of amenities do you get for that kind of rent?
The Apartments at Westlight includes a 25-meter heated rooftop pool, sun deck, fitness center, private club room, business center and underground parking garage.
A resident manager also coordinates package delivery directly to apartments via its concierge team, dry cleaning delivery and assistance carrying groceries or other items from the lobby to apartments.
The building is also architecturally curious looking, with a stacked box appearance, designed by architect Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos of Mexico City, whose other recent works include the New York Public Library, Miami Design District and Rutgers Business School.
Lobby art includes works by artist Ingo Maurer, whose current works are also featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
The name “Westlight” comes from its West End location and abundant light-filled rooms.
The building also includes a Bluestone Lane coffee shop and cafe, Bluestone’s third location in Washington.
The development also includes Westlight/West End condos, on the 24th and L side of the building. Condos there are priced from $625,000 to $4.5 million. Eastbanc says 47 of the 72 condos have already been sold.
