The Columbia | Market Pulse | October 2021

You’ll rarely find a condominium community as unique, historic or amenity-rich as The Columbia Residences. The origins lie in Thomas Circle, with the first Columbia Hospital for Women opening its doors in 1866. It moved to its present West End location in 1870 and was rebuilt on a grander scale in 1916. An innovator in prenatal care, the lauded healthcare facility remained open until 2002, and was converted to upscale condos in 2010. Combining exquisite architecture with luxury interiors and an on-site Trader Joe’s, The Columbia has become one of DC’s most popular places to live.
