More About Landmark Lofts, Washington, DC

Redeveloped in 2008, the two Italianate-style buildings known as the Landmark Lofts were built in 1874, and originally housed a convent and a nursing home operated by the Little Sisters of the Poor. Although the address of record is 215 I Street NE, it is actually fronted by H Street. The Senate Square property including upscale apartment buildings comprise a prime city block bound by I Street, 3rd Street NE, H Street, and 2nd Street NE. Those fortunate enough to own one of the 44 condos at Landmark Lofts enjoy Senate Square amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, a swimming pool, and a clubhouse.

The Little Sisters of the Poor first arrived in Washington in 1871, a small group of seven women from France who were welcomed by Father Jacob Walter of St. Patrick’s Church. The Sisters were initially based at the historic Archdiocese of Washington building at 924 G Street NE, caring for aged, impoverished Washingtonians until the property at 220 H Street NE became available.

This was the aftermath of the Civil War, a time when there were few federal assistance programs in Washington, DC. The two original buildings were known variously over the years as the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Elderly, and St. Joseph’s Home. In the mid-1970s, the original structures were seriously damaged by a car that careened off the newly built H Street Bridge.

The Sisters subsequently moved to a new location, and the Capital Children’s Museum took over the property. Transformative change happened once again in the early 2000s, as Abdo Development renovated the original building as Landmark Lofts, adding adjacent red brick structures as the Senate Square upscale apartment rentals. Abdo went a step further with the retro repurposing concept by trucking a large number of old bricks from the original building across the river to Rosslyn, where they now serve as interior accents in Abdo’s Wooster and Mercer Lofts.

Washington, DC with its numerous neighborhood historic districts has a penchant for preserving its wonderful old buildings. However, the federal city has continually grown its population over the years, resulting in a need for more housing. One solution has been the repurposing of historic buildings in novel ways. The Yale Steam Laundry once laundered linens for the White House before transforming to luxury condos. The Columbia Residences was formerly the Columbia Hospital for Women, the Carolina on the Hill condominium building was originally Saint Catherine’s Home for Working Girls, Rainbow Lofts in Logan Circle used to be an auto body and paint shop, and Bryan School Lofts on Capitol Hill stems from the Thomas Barbour Bryan Elementary School.

Landmark Lofts enjoys a lively location, as part of both Capitol Hill and the H Street Corridor. There’s a new Whole Foods just down the street, as well as a nearby Giant Foods. Local coffee shops include Sidamo Coffee & Tea, Casey’s Coffee, Starbucks, and Ebenezer’s Coffee House. Among the neighborhood pubs and restaurants are Bar Elena, Binge Bar, Café File, Ethiopic, Cane, and Sticky Foods Diner. Residents at Landmark Lofts enjoy parking and bike storage, but it’s also such a walk-friendly place for those who live and work on the Hill, conveniently close to the Capitol building, the Supreme Court, national museums, and other prominent addresses.
