A new industrial-style building by New York architect Morris Adjmi recently opened at 900 W St. NW in DC’s Shaw neighborhood as part of the Atlantic Plumbing project he designed in 2015.

Method Co., a Philadelphia-based real estate management, development and design firm, has partnered with JBG Smith to develop Whyle. The upscale apartment building features 95 furnished junior one-bedroom and one- and two-bedroom units only available for short-term rental of 30 days to one year.

“We felt there was something missing in the corporate apartment space and there was an opportunity to create a well-designed and thoughtful short-term rental,” says Randall Cook, CEO and co-founder of Method. Co. They usually lack the design elements that people using them would appreciate. »

Method and JBG Smith engaged Adjmi to design the exterior and interior of the new building. In addition, Adjmi has designed custom furniture for each apartment.

“Each unit is unique, with selected artwork, rugs and books, as well as furniture designed by Morris or one of the other furniture makers we work with,” says Cook.

Apartments have hardwood floors, fully equipped kitchens with Bosch appliances, high-end fixtures, floor-to-ceiling windows, smart TVs, WiFi, and washers and dryers.

“Whyle offers an add-on option for furnished apartments with flexible stays that is not currently available in the Shaw neighborhood,” says Tiffany Butcher, executive vice president of residential and commercial management at JBG Smith. “Residents can immediately step into a beautifully furnished apartment and we know that in a city like DC where people come and go often, this will be appealing to some tenants who may need that instant comfort and convenience that Whyle provides. .”

Apartments range from 573 to 1,077 square feet and rent from $4,500 to $8,000 per month, with all utilities, including internet service, covered in the rent.

“The market for these short-term rentals includes people who are renovating homes and need a nice place to stay, people who come from all over the world for healthcare at local medical facilities, and people who are moving for a job and need time to find a place to buy, including those coming in with new administrations after an election,” says Cook. “Normally there are also a lot of people who come for short-term contracts or trainings, so we also expect business to pick up as more people get vaccinated and the government returns to normal. .”

Building amenities include a rooftop lounge and pool, fitness center with Peloton bikes, yoga room, and high-end equipment.

It also has parking, weekly maid service, and a live plant program for tenants who want greenery in their apartments. The building is pet-friendly and has a 24-hour front desk with concierge services.

A Whole Foods is next door and many restaurants, bars, theaters and music venues are in the neighborhood. For more information, visit
