The Chastleton Cooperative

Located at 1701 16th Street NW, Washington DC 20009 | Dupont Circle

There are few residential buildings in Washington, DC larger or more historic than the Chastleton. Originally built in 1919 at an eye-popping cost of $1.5 million, the former grand apartment building with its Gothic Revival design, was renovated and relaunched in 2007 as a luxury cooperative. The eight-story structure is home to some 300 residences with a variety of sizes and floorplans. Located at 1701 16th Street between R and S Streets in Dupont Circle, this notable building is steps from numerous shops, restaurants, and other attractions.

It's not unusual for historic apartment buildings to be converted to either condominium or cooperative use in Washington, DC. The transformation of the Chastleton in 2008 was done by Keener-Squire Properties and was quite extensive. There was work done to the façade, the exterior grounds, common interior spaces, and the residences themselves. The result was a seamless integration of original architectural details from the golden era with modern features, such as new wooden floors in a variety of finishes, and stunning gourmet kitchens that are often opened up to spacious living and dining areas. Stainless steel appliances, stone counters, and hanging pendant lights make it a joy to cook and dine in. And if you get tired of home meals, simply stroll to one of the many neighborhood restaurants.
