Van Ness North Cooperative

Located at 3001 Veazey Terrace NW, Washington, DC 20008 | Forest Hills

One of the largest cooperative residence communities in Washington, DC, Van Ness North also offers an impressive slate of full service amenities. Built right up into the verdant hillsides of Rock Creek Park, the 16-story building is located in the tony Forest Hills enclave but is often associated with the next-door neighborhood for which it is named, Van Ness. From the circular front drive with its fountain and doorman, to its 466 apartments in a wide variety of layouts, this is one of the District’s perennial favorites. Residents also don't have far to drive when they want to visit Downtown DC.

Although its street address is Veazey Terrace, Van Ness North is right off Connecticut Avenue, next-door to Van Ness Street and a half-block from the Van Ness Metro Station. The cooperative is one of multiple commercial and residential structures in the Van Ness Centre complex, developed by Robert I Silverman and designed by notable Washington architect Joseph Abel. The 18-acre community was built over a six-year span between 1964 and 1970. Van Ness North itself was completed in 1967, with Abel residing in a large three-bedroom apartment from the building’s completion until his death nearly 20 years later.

More About Van Ness North, Washington, DC

Each of the three large residential buildings began as apartment rentals, with Van Ness North transferring to cooperative ownership in 1979 and Van Ness East converting to condominiums.  Van Ness South remains a rental building. There is also office and retail space on site, as well as a Giant Food supermarket. Abel designed the community in the International style that was so popular at the time, featuring blocky facades and cubist balconies. Each of the residential buildings has its own entrance and landscaped surroundings, with drives, walkways, and courtyards that interconnect. The coop apartments include studios, one, two, and three-bedroom floorplans. Some also have dens and/or family rooms, and nearly each has a private outdoor space of some kind, with fenced patios at the ground level and terraces above.

Apartments at Van Ness North have a mid-century modern vibe, often with the original wooden parquet floors that were so popular at the time. The oversized windows and open space concepts were forerunners of a trend that would become popular decades later. Many of the units have received upgrades and remodels over the year, such as new gourmet kitchens and new baths. The building is rich in amenities, with a large, staffed lobby, a doorman, a well-appointed fitness center, a swimming pool, and secure garage parking. There’s underground access to the nearby Van Ness Metro with its Red Line service, you can also get there easily by walking along the outside sidewalk.
