The Logan Circle neighborhood near 14th and P streets and Q and R streets in Northwest Washington has experienced a transformation within the past decade from a sad neighborhood of broken-down homes and empty buildings to one of the most vibrant sections of the city.

Some buildings in this area have been gutted and remodeled into innovative homes, while other buildings with less valuable architectural style have been torn down to make room for new construction.

The night life along 14th and P streets Northwest offers an eclectic mix of restaurants side-by-side with bars, blues clubs and dance clubs. The Studio Theatre occupies one corner of 14th and P, while stores such as Whole Foods and the Logan Circle Ace Hardware cater to the needs of local residents.

This once desolate area now resembles New York City on a Saturday evening, with theatergoers mixing with club-goers and singles, couples and even families enjoying a meal or an urban stroll.

Fitting right into this neighborhood is Q-14, a new brick-and-glass contemporary-style condominium building developed by the Fred Bahrami Collection with enough classic touches to blend in with local architecture.

Q-14, on the corner of 14th and Q at 1600 14th St. NW, includes 30 condominium homes. Two are still available for sale.

The secured building has two levels of underground parking with 37 spaces. Storage units are also available, and two elevators reach from the parking garage to the sixth floor. The building has a party room, a second-level terrace and a rooftop terrace for residents to enjoy.

The two available homes are priced at $617,140 and $940,350.

Standard features in the homes include commercial-grade windows for soundproofing, ceiling heights from 9 to 19 feet high, hardwood flooring throughout, and a European-style kitchen with granite counters, wood cabinets from Porcelanosa and stainless steel appliances including a Jenn-Air oven, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer by Bosch.

On the third floor, unit 301, priced at $617,140, has a monthly condominium fee of $352. This model has 964 finished square feet, with a closet and a laundry room off the foyer, as well as access to the full bath.

The open kitchen includes a breakfast bar facing the combined living and dining room, which has a sliding glass door to a balcony. The bedroom also has a sliding glass door to the balcony, along with two closets and a door to the bath.

On the fifth floor, unit 505, priced at $940,350, has a monthly condominium fee of $590. This home has 1,439 square feet, with a powder room, a closet and a laundry room off the foyer. The kitchen has a breakfast bar opening into the living room, which has a sliding glass door to the balcony and a fireplace in one corner. Adjacent to the living room is a dining area or home office.

This model has a master bedroom with a sliding glass door to a second balcony, a walk-in closet, a linen closet and a private full bath. The second bedroom has a door to the second balcony, a standard closet and a private full bath.
