More About Cathedral Avenue, Washington, DC

Catedral Avenue was introduced with great fanfare in the early 1960s as an example of new luxury living with full service amenities. That popularity has not waned in the intervening years as the building is still a highly regarded address. Cooperative ownership differs from condominiums, in that coop buyers purchase shares in the building, along with the right to live in a particular unit. Prices are initially established by the size of the apartment but naturally change over time as successive owners buy and sell their properties. Washington, DC is one of the country’s major cities with a sizeable number of cooperative buildings, although not nearly to the extent of New York City were coops account for the majority of residences. Other well-known cooperative buildings in DC include the Watergate in Foggy Bottom, 2101 Connecticut Avenue in Kalorama, and Shoreham West in Woodley Park.

Residents at Cathedral Avenue enjoy an accommodating front desk with 24/7 concierge service, garage parking, and a very large fenced outdoor swimming pool with a lounge area that is seemingly surrounded by lush parkland. There is also a nicely equipped fitness center, laundry facilities, a bike room, extra storage units, and plenty of guest parking. The building is close to Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and New Mexico Avenues, allowing for nearby shops and restaurants. Local favorite DeCarlo’s Restaurant is just across the street on Cathedral Avenue.
