DC’s latest addition to the luxury apartment scene, The Hepburn, is spoiling tenants with the perks of hotel living.
See and be seen: The Hepburn is both a stunning addition to DC’s landscape and one of the best ways to see it—its 360-degree views take in the Washington Monument and the National Cathedral.
It’s no coincidence that the shining curvature of The Hepburn’s façade mimics the signature silhouette of the Washington Hilton next door. This 195-unit luxury apartment project, designed by the firm Beyer Blinder Belle and now available for leasing, wants its renters to live the hotel high life.
“We have this romantic notion of living in a hotel,” says Lowe Enterprises senior VP Mark Rivers. “So to the extent we can, we’re providing that kind of attention.”
Concierge service at The Hepburn starts with the usual fare—securing coveted dinner rezzies, theater seats, gala invites, and so on—and takes it from there. Traveling? They’ll not only research your itinerary but also coordinate private aviation and yacht charters and pet-sitting services. They’ll even arrange for housekeeping and replenish your pantry while you’re gone, so you don’t skip a beat upon return. “We are selling not only a wonderful building,” says Rivers, “but a lifestyle difference.”
The amenities kick into high gear with in-home spa and salon appointments, personal training, and handymen at the ready. The Hepburn’s idea of community engagement extends to monthly supper clubs with celebrity chefs and wine tastings with master sommeliers. It’s hotel-level attention with all the comforts of home. Talk about room service— and yes, you can get that, too! 1901 Connecticut Ave. NW, 866-387-1211
