Condominium sales in the Washington area have skyrocketed, along with prices. The Tenacity Group specializes in converting apartments to condominiums and providing financing for tenants and outside buyers to make the homes more affordable.

One of the Tenacity Group’s newest conversion projects, Columbia Station, in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Northwest Washington, is now available for sales to nontenants.

Located at 3500 13th St. NW, Columbia Station occupies a 1920s former apartment complex in the heart of a revitalized neighborhood. In addition to the recently renovated Tivoli Theatre and a new Giant supermarket, the neighborhood anticipates more than 500,000 additional square feet of retail shops and restaurants. The Columbia Heights Metro station is an easy walk from Columbia Station.

Each one or two-bedroom home includes multiple large windows, 9-foot ceilings, new or refinished hardwood flooring, a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, new bathrooms, a European-made combination washer and dryer and a new individual heating and central air conditioning system for each home.
