A prime area beginning to experience revitalization is Anacostia, particularly the com-munity near Martin

Luther King Boulevard Metro station in Southeast Washington.

The Flats at Hunter Crossing, at 2317 16th St. SE in the area known as “Soho in Anacostia,” is a condominium conversion project by the Tenacity Group, a company specializing in working with tenants in apartment buildings to develop affordable homes for purchase.

Residents at the Flats live within walking distance of Fort Stanton Park and a growing neighborhood of shops, restaurants and night life around 16th Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard in Southeast.

The Tenacity Group completely refurbished the inside and outside of the Flats, adding new landscaping and a new steel picket fence around the perimeter. There are new storefront-style doors at each entrance with a technologically advanced building entry system with built-in security cameras.

Private parking is available with gated access to the property.

The building has new main electrical supply lines, new plumbing lines and new waterproofing. New common area lighting has been installed, along with new floor and wall finishes in the common areas and new unit entry doors.

The Flats at Hunter Crossing is a pet-friendly community.

Inside, the homes have new white windows and sliding glass doors, multiple cable TV outlets, new lever door handles, a stacked washer and dryer in each home, newly rebuilt balconies and central air conditioning and heat with a digital thermostat.

The homes have bamboo floors, walk-in closets, a wireless security system, ceramic tile bathroom floors and lighting set on dimmer switches.

Each kitchen has been renovated with frameless white kitchen cabinets with contemporary-style hardware, stainless steel appliances, Impala black granite counters, a built-in granite bar and table, a tile backsplash, a Lazy Susan and corner cabinets for extra storage, and built-in trash and recycling bins.

Buyers can choose among four color-customization packages for their homes for the kitchen, baths and accent walls. These feature Caribbean colors such as an ocean blue, a warm orange, a dusky gray or an avocado green.

Many of the homes in Phase I have been sold; Phase II sales are about to begin. The one- and two-bedroom homes range from 652 to 872 square feet, with base prices from $159,500 to $209,500. Condominium fees are estimated to range from $193 to $258 per month.

Two one-bedroom homes are still on the market in Phase I, each priced at $179,500 for a 652-square-foot home. The monthly condominium fee for each of these homes is $193.

The one-bedroom homes have an open living area and an open kitchen with the built-in bar and table at one end. This home has a balcony off the living area, along with a coat closet and a closet with a stacked washer and dryer. The home has a walk-in closet off the bedroom and an adjacent full bath.
