While much of Capitol Hill is dominated by charming Colonial-style town homes, a few condominium developments are being added to the housing mix in this neighborhood.

In Southeast Washington, excitement is building over the prospect of the construction of the new baseball stadium on the banks of the Anacostia River.

A few new condominiums are already selling in the area. Developers have plans in the works for mixed-use developments in several locations in Southeast, including condominiums near the stadium site, on Virginia Avenue, on 15th Street, at K and L streets near Half Street and at South Capitol and N streets SE.

Butterfield House, a new condominium development by SGA Magellan LLC built in a red brick Victorian-style building, will blend with the surrounding Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Located at 1020 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, this community near the Eastern Market Metro station includes 28 condominiums in an elevator building.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom homes will be priced from the mid-$400,000s to $1,300,000 for a three-bedroom penthouse home, with monthly condominium fees from about $250 to less than $600.

The building includes underground parking and a rooftop deck with views of the Capitol building. A Zipcar is on-site for those who prefer to use a car on an occasional basis.

Each home will have stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, moldings, cable and Internet access, cherry flooring and a washer and dryer. The 102 unit, a corner residence, has two balconies, one off the living room and one accessible from the master bedroom. This home has an open dining area, living room and center-island kitchen with a bay window alcove at one end. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and private full bath, and the second bedroom has a walk-in closet and an adjacent full bath.
