Thursday, 31 January 2008

Contrary to popular belief in today's real estate market, several bright spots around the country are showing consumer confidence, sensible pricing and, consequently, strong sales for new homes. One of those bright spots is the District's emerging Capitol Riverfront neighborhood surrounding the new Nationals ballpark, and the specific address in the neighborhood that's keeping home sales and optimism so high is Velocity Condominium. Velocity is the fastest-selling new condominium project in the District of Columbia, and one of the strongest sellers in the entire National Capital area. Since sales officially began at Velocity just before Thanksgiving, 21 of its urban condos have already sold. Prices at Velocity start in the $300's.

Velocity epitomizes all the best of the new Capitol Waterfront area. Velocity will include a Rooftop Pool, a Wellness Center, secure underground parking, an ultramodern lobby and a landscaped center courtyard. Velocity condos are available as studios, one-bedrooms, one-bedrooms with dens, two-bedrooms and two-bedrooms with dens. The homes feature high-end, designer-inspired finishes. The Velocity Sales Center includes interactive displays and a fully furnished, full-scale one-bedroom with den unit inside the Sales Center itself. Prospective buyers can also view a scale model of the contemporary building, view interior finish selections in the Design Room, and learn about the history and future of the Capitol Riverfront area through detailed displays and a DVD presentation. The Velocity Sales Center has recently been entered in local design competitions.

"The keys to Velocity's amazing sales success are its design, location, marketing campaign and its truly incredible Sales Center and furnished Model Home," said Alan Cohen, president of ADC Builders and principal of The Cohen Companies. "The Sales Center has interactive electronic displays and includes a full-sized, fully-furnished model with one bedroom, two full baths and a den -- right in the Sales Center," Cohen added.

The cosmopolitan Velocity condo tower is one-and-a-half blocks from Navy Yard Metro, four blocks from the new Nationals baseball stadium and just blocks from the U.S. Capitol. Velocity will be surrounded by new stores, restaurants and coffee houses, new nightclubs and performing arts venues. Velocity's location also puts residents a short walk from shopping along Barracks Row on 8th Street, at Eastern Market and on M Street.
