Urban Pace to Market New Six-Unit Residential Community in D.C.’s Vibrant Petworth Neighborhood


(Washington, DC—January 12, 2018) Urban Pace has been retained to exclusively represent The Clare, a new six-unit residential community in the dynamic Petworth neighborhood of Northwest Washington, D.C. Reflecting the authentic, cool vibe of its surroundings, the building at 129 Varnum St., NW, offers a rare and affordable opportunity to capture a piece of one of the most exciting urban neighborhoods in the nation’s capital.

“Situated in a neighborhood that’s rapidly becoming one of D.C.’s most popular, The Clare presents opportunities for first-time homebuyers as well as for more established urban and suburban residents looking for their next step in the city,” said Matt Dewey, President of Urban Pace. “Rarely are new condos at this size available, especially in such a desirable area. The Clare is walking distance to Upshur Street which is one of Washington’s hottest destinations for dining and nightlife.”

Designed by Bonstra | Haresign Architects and constructed by Harbor Builders, The Clare is developed by investor Paula Wu.

“The Clare was developed with the discerning urban dweller in mind,” said Wu. “From its high-end finishes to its open layouts and abundant natural light, The Clare gives its residents a refined sense of place and belonging in one of Northwest Washington’s most captivating neighborhoods.”

The Clare features two four-bedroom, 2.5-bath units, offering larger-than-average spaces that are affordable. The development also includes two two-bedroom, one-bath units; and two two-bedroom, two-bath units and start in the high $400s. Units are distinctively styled with contemporary shaker cabinets, stainless steel appliances, modern slate-grey floors, full height backsplashes, and Statuario tile and high-gloss cabinets in baths. The building is also meticulously engineered with Nest thermostats, LED lighting and native-plant landscaping to heighten sustainability, reduce environmental impacts, promote air quality, minimize storm-water runoff, and promote nutrient cycling.
