This is 3303 Water Street, possibly the best condo building in D.C.—-at least, that’s what people have told me, over and over again. A few weeks ago, I wrote a story about the dearth of true luxury units by the Georgetown waterfront. Sure, if you want something with bedrooms and bathrooms, with the coveted 20007 zip code, there are quite a few buildings to choose from. But, when it comes to real amenities—-the kind that you never tend to think about—-like the thickness of the floor (you’ll never hear a single footstep from above!), and superior exhaust systems (deep fry all you want!), the supply is limited. After hearing about 3303 Water Street for quite some time, I decided that I needed to stop by and check out the place myself. No doubt about it: gorgeous. My guide was Monica Boyd, who showed me two units she recently listed at 3303 Water Street. One was a 1,703 square foot, canal view unit for $1.699 million. The other was a 1,752 square foot Potomac view unit for $1.995 million. More pictures below.
