Analoston Condominiums

Located at 1718 Corcoran Street NW, Washington, DC 20009 | Dupont Circle

Built all the way back in 1885, Analoston was one of the first apartment buildings in Washington, DC to include an elevator. Designed by renowned architect George S. Cooper in the Beaux-Arts style, the taupe brick structure with its exquisite detailing is listed in James Goode’s “Best Addresses” book. The building’s name is emblazoned in limestone halfway up the front, and is likely a variation on “Analostan,” deriving from a 17th century Native American tribe, as well as the original name of DC’s Roosevelt Island. Other historic buildings in the neighborhood include the Cairo, the Northumberland, and the Albemarle

The 26 residences at Analoston are not particularly large, ranging from around 350 to 750 square feet with layouts from studios to two bedrooms. But these beautifully restored units are true treasures, combining original architectural details with new contemporary upgrades. The location is also key, on the charming tree-lined Corcoran Street just steps from 17th Street and the heart of Dupont Circle’s popular restaurant scene. This is a highly walkable historic district with canopies of trees, quaint sidewalks, and incredible buildings and rowhouses.
