A new project in Washington, D.C. is transforming a former Cadillac dealership, which operated from 1935 to the late 1970s into 192 apartments and five two-story carriage houses, reports Washington Post writer Michele Lerner.

The studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments in the high rise include large kitchen islands, quartz countertops, nine-foot ceilings, sliding glass barn doors into the bedrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies. The building has all-new interiors, including heating and air conditioning systems, elevators and electrical and plumbing fixtures. Building amenities include a rooftop deck with a fire pit; grills; two swimming pools connected by a waterfall; a fitness center; a pet spa; and a lounge with TVs and pool tables. Rents range from $2,060 to $5,685.

The five two-story carriage houses range from 1,194 to 1,564 square feet and rent for $5,560 to $7,500. Each has a private garage or carport. The largest, which rents for $7,500 per month, has an open center-island kitchen, as well as a living area and dining area that open onto a covered patio. This carriage house has a garage and a powder room on the main level along with the living areas. Two bedrooms, each with a private full bathroom, are upstairs.
