Apartments in D.C.: City Market at O

Washington, D.C. has beautiful historic buildings, including apartment buildings that date back centuries, but those looking for a more modern apartment should train their sights to the newly constructed City Market at O.

It’s clear that the O’s developers wanted to create a space where busy residents can take care of errands and other duties as close to home as possible. This goal seems to have been approached from all angles and the amenities available are quite conventional. The O features a gym and spa facility, meaning residents can workout and get a massage without leaving their building. Another way the O sets itself apart while catering to young professionals is by welcoming pet owners and their furry companions. The complex has its own dog park—and not just any run-of-the-mill dog-run. Reflecting the complex’s own urbanity and sophistication, the O’s dog park is located on the building’s roof. A den-like community space is also available for resident use. This is beneficial for those professionals who telecommute but may need an impersonal and polished space for meeting with clients and colleagues. Further assistance for O residents comes from the building’s full-time concierge service.


The building features a parking garage with standard signifiers of modern urban life, including electric car charging stations and parking spaces for car sharing programs. The building is also close to a variety of public transit options, including bus stops and Metro stations. These features are typical of an urban building, but it is nonetheless relieving to see the O offers standard features alongside some of its more unusual amenities.

All these perks are nice, but they would amount to a dog and pony show if the apartments themselves did not live up to the hype. Whether you are looking for a one-bedroom space to call your own or a two-bedroom to share, this building has the floor plans to accommodate you. The building features everything from economical studios to two bedroom/two bath units that could be cozy for a young family. Balconies and dens are also optional. Each unit comes with advanced GE appliances and a sleek, clean design that blends well with a variety of decor styles.


Young professionals in Washington, D.C. have a variety of lifestyle options, but older buildings tend to dominate the heart of the city. Often, those seeking modern buildings in the D.C. area have to look to suburban solutions, which is not appealing for all lifestyles. The O fills a need in D.C., allowing young professionals to settle in a place that blends the best of the city’s past with a renewed vision for its future.
