We know D.C. Get our free newsletter to stay in the know.

So if the “Best of D.C.” advertisement in the corner hasn’t caught your eye. Or you didn’t spot the “Best of D.C.” ballot party invite covering the entire back page of newspaper. Well, then allow me to tell you: Our 2009 Best of D.C. issue is coming out soon—-March 27 to be exact.

Unfortunately, our first round of deadlines is also just around the corner. I’m writing up some real estate/development-related categories for the newspaper. First one up: Best Building Amenities or “Why You Should Live in a Behemoth of a Building, Instead of a Nice Little Boutique Place” (because the best amenities usually are in the larger properties).

I got some suggestions (written below) already from a sales agent in D.C., but I’m still collecting nominations.

The Whitman, 910 M Street N.W.

Why: Fitness center, large rooftop terrace with grill, and outdoor lap pool.

City Vista, 1045 5th Street N.W.

Why: Huge Safeway and Results Gym within the complex, one-acre park inside building,”Oasis in the sky:” club room, outdoor pool, and outdoor terrace.

Other ideas people?
