The Columbia | Market Pulse | July 2021

One of our favorite condominium communities was once known as the Columbia Hospital for Women and Lying-in Asylum. Built during the civil war era when medical care was scarce for women, the West End facility kept its doors open until 2006, reopening four years later as the Columbia Residences. Extensive renovation and expansion went into the process. There’s even a Trader Joe’s on-site!

One of just two new offerings in July at The Columbia, Unit #633 is an exclusive Life At The Top listing. The spacious residence with one bedroom plus a sunny loft den, was on the market for just three days before going into Active Under Contract status! Priced at $699,500, the delightful apartment with a 210 square foot terrace plus a secondary balcony, is due to close in early August.

The other new listing at The Columbia in July already has a price cut. Unit #234 has one bedroom, one bath and a den, with 812 square feet of living space. Originally offered at $630,000, the apartment has now been dropped to $615,000. There has only been one owner since the redevelopment. Hardwood floors, Poggenpohl cabinetry, a Viking range and covered parking are included.
