Rent Me: The Exchange Apartments

Construction at Douglas Development's beautiful mixed use historic redevelopment at the corner of 9th and N Streets, NW, The Exchange, finally wrapped up late last year. From the street, it really looks awesome (and will look even better when the retail spots are occupied!).

The residences on the upper floors are officially for lease now. Check out this website for information about and pictures of the seventeen one bedroom and studio apartments for rent. All have hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, washers/dryers, modern lights and great closets.

Thanks for the links! I loved looking through the additional photos available on The Exchange website!

Word on the street, literally, is that a small bank is looking to move into the bottom floor of The Exchange. They would be using all of the commercial space for their bank and headquarters offices. I was hoping for a restaurant or cafe on the corner and some other smaller retail but given Douglas Development's outrageous pricing... I guess that'll never happen.

Uggghhh. Not a bank!

What a waste of a great neighborhood space that could of helped to make Shaw more of a destination with a good restaurant.

A bank would be dark at night and on the weekends, and I'm guessing would do little to increase foot traffic on 9th street. The only upside is that the office space would bring in more workers and more demand for services during the day.

Why can't we somehow incentivise Colorado Kitchen, Cafe Deluxe, Vinoteca, or other intersting restranteers in the city to fill that space that obviously should be a restaurant??!!!

I drive up 9th St regularly and it's great to see more residents and businesses moving in. I tend to agree with ML that a bank is not the highest on the retail list but if the other choice is to have an extended vacancy, then a bank it is.

note...banks are not always dark on weekends. the TD Bank on 7th Street in my area is open both Saturdays and Sundays (I don't bank there).
