- The Washington Times - Thursday, September 14, 2006

With excitement, Washingtonians have watched the transformation of the neighborhood surrounding the Washington Convention Center. Once filled with run-down buildings, the area is being renovated into mixed-use developments and new buildings.

Ten Ten Mass, a joint project of RCP Development and Citigroup Property Investors on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 11th Street Northwest, is a 14-story concrete, steel and glass high-rise within walking distance of four Metro stations: McPherson Square, Mount Vernon Square, Gallery Place and Metro Center.

Besides the convention center, more than 60 restaurants, nightclubs and bars are within walking distance of the condominium, along with theaters, museums, art galleries, shops, hotels and the Verizon Center.

Neighborhoods such as Dupont Circle and Penn Quarter also can be reached easily on foot.

Though city pleasures may tempt residents away from home, the development also includes plenty of amenities: 8,700 square feet of retail shops on the ground level, a rooftop swimming pool, secure underground parking and a 24-hour front desk.

The homes have balconies or terraces, floor-to-ceiling box-bay windows, hardwood flooring with carpet in the bedrooms, stainless steel appliances and granite counters in the kitchens, and travertine vanity tops in the baths.

About half of the building consists of one-bedroom-and-den homes.

The one-bedroom-one-bath homes, with 750 to 899 square feet, are priced from the high $300,000s to the low $500,000s; most are priced in the low $400,000s.

The one-bedroom-with-den homes with 885 to 956 square feet and one bath are priced from the mid-$400,000s to the high $500,000s. The larger one-bedroom-with-den homes, with 1,025 to 1,114 square feet and two baths, are priced from the low $500,000s to the low $600,000s.

The two-bedroom homes with one or 11/2 baths, with 1,061 square feet, are priced from the mid-$400,000s to the low $600,000s. The two-bedroom, two-bath homes, with 1,275 to 1,505 square feet, are priced from the upper $600,000s to the mid-$900,000s.

Monthly condominium fees range from more than $200 to more than $500.

The “03” home, available on the third through 12th floors, has 871 square feet and includes a closet and a den off the foyer, with a laundry room accessible from the den.

The central area of the home is open, with a living and dining area with a curving window open to the center-island kitchen. The balcony is accessible from the living area and the bedroom. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a full bath, which also is accessible from the hall.

The “04” home, available on the fourth through 11th floors, has 1,505 square feet. It includes two closets off the foyer and an open living and dining area with a deep box-bay window and a glass door to the balcony. The center-island kitchen is open to the living and dining area. The master suite has a private full bath and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a double-door closet. This model also has a second full bath and a laundry room.

The “11” home, available on the third through 14th floors, with 789 square feet, has a foyer that opens directly into the open floor plan, including a center-island kitchen and a living and dining area with windows on two sides and a box-bay window.
