There was a clear leader at the top of the list for most units sold in August 2022. The iconic Watergate in Foggy Bottom accounted for seven closings, more than doubling its closet rival. Two of the Watergate sales were further distinguished in the August stats. Unit #720/21 with its modern makeover, two bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 2,459 square feet of living space, sold for $3,000,000, making it the third highest sale for the month as well as the second highest price per square foot at $1,220.01. The other Watergate closing, Unit #1405-S, is a fabulous penthouse with three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 3,070 square feet of living space and spiral stairs leading to a 1,045 square foot private roof deck. It listed for $1,295,000 before selling for $1,320,000, making it the third highest on the list-to-sales ratio at 101.93 percent of asking.
There were two buildings with three sales each. Spanning more than five city blocks in the downtown Mount Vernon Triangle, CityCenterDC has been described by the New York Times as a modern-day Rockefeller Plaza with condos, more than 40 upscale retail boutiques and restaurants, offices, hotels, and a 1.5 acre park. The Odyssey is the other building with three sales, located in Rosslyn and within walking distance of the Potomac River. Standout amenities include a 24/7 staffed lobby, a phenomenal rooftop swimming pool, fitness center, business center, party rooms, meeting room, and ground floor retail.
Three buildings had two sales each: 22 West in the West End, The Waterview in Rosslyn, and The Whitman in Mount Vernon Triangle. A major highlight from this grouping is Unit #7G at 22 West which captured the highest sales price in August as well as the third highest price per square foot. The three-bedroom, 3.5-bath apartment with its 2,995 square foot layout sold for $3,500,000, equaling $1,168.61 per square foot. There were no less than six buildings with one sale each: 2020 Lofts in the U Street Corridor, 3303 Water Street in Georgetown, 525 Water Street in the Southwest Waterfront, Adams Row in Adams Morgan, Chase Point in Friendship Heights, and Clara Barton in Penn Quarter. Special honors go to Unit #315 at Chase Point with the highest list-to-sales ratio for the month at 105.26 percent of asking, as well as Unit #5C at 3303 Water Street, capturing the highest price per square foot (the 1,394 sq. ft. apartment sold for $1,820,000, translating to $1,305.60 per square foot).
