DC community profile: the Clara Barton at Penn Quarter

Modern high-rise in a traditional neighborhood

The Clara Barton is one of the few modern high-rise towers in Penn Quarter, with floor-to-ceiling windows and lots of natural light.  There are 255 one, two and three-bedroom condos at Clara Barton, including two penthouses. Located at 616 E. St. NW, Washington D.C., properties at the Clara Barton are priced between $320,000 to $850,000. Association fees range from $400 to $800 per month and do not include parking.

The Gallery District

Location is everything to those that live here, as the Gallery District is listed as a top five shopping district and draws its name from the many art galleries in the area. The Clara Barton is within walking distance to the Verizon Center, and there are three metro stops within two blocks, including Archives, Navy Memorial and Gallery Place Metro Station. Entertainment nearby includes the Smithsonian Art Museum, Fords Theatre, American Art Museum & Portrait Gallery, International Spy Museum and the National Mall — all only a few blocks away.
