Luxury Living at The Envoy Apartments In Northwest Washington DC

Font Size » Large | Small

Just for fun, I visited an apartment well outside my price range. I was getting closer to the deadline I had given myself to find an apartment and heard about this gorgeous place in NW DC. I work within walking distance of 16th street, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try the place out (the co-worker I got the tip from stays in a really great 3BR in the same neighborhood)
The walk was really nice. Just before you get to the complex, there is this beautiful park (the Meridian) that looks like it belongs on a postcard. The complex itself is huge. It was one of the larger ones I had seen. When I walked in, it reminded me of a modern version of the hotel from “The Shining”. (As if all the ghosts were exercised and they renovated the place. lol)
Some of the features are ones you’d find at a high class hotel are there–maid service, shoe shining, chandeliers, and ridiculously overwhelming marble columns. When I researched the apartments, I found a price range of $1021-$2300, but the representative that showed me around said the available units were about $1600+
The inside was not as amazing as the outside. Although the carpets were definitely clean, they were a little older than I expected. I would imagine moving in would be a bit of an issue because of the way the building is. Also, the laundry room closes around 11:30pm. There’s 24 hour security at the front desk and I didn’t see any disgruntled residents. What I did see though, were A LOT of residents.
To say this place was fancy would be an understatement. It was the definition of luxury living. When I start making above $50k I’ll consider moving there. The price matched the beauty and even if you think its out of your budget, I would suggest you see the Envoy…it might change your mind. I give the Envoy 9/10
