With the District going gaga for luxury apartments, Level 2 Development’s ritzy rookery View 14 (view14.com) ups the ante with amenities aplenty. Situated at 14th Street and Florida Avenue, in the booming U Street corridor, the property is poised at the intersection of the ageless and avant-garde. For the edgy outpost’s common areas, fashion-forward design gurus from Vastu created a Modern-Baroque fusion of functional fabrics and furnishings in warm posh palettes of oranges, browns and lime greens, offset with über-mod graphic wallpapers. Just now ready for move-in, the hot property lays the groundwork for L2D’s high-velocity vision, blazing the U Street trail with wired shared-spaces, street-level shops, unparalleled cityscapes (check out the roof-view on this issue’s cover) and even a sublime Zen garden for a quiet escape. They say location is everything, and even though your hot spot is perched atop the city’s “It” strip, you may never want to leave.
