The Cairo 1615 Q Street NW


Listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places, the Cairo is Washington DC’s tallest residential building. Originally constructed in 1894 by Thomas Franklin Schneider, the 12-story condominium is home to 168 units. The front of the building can be noted for unique gargoyles and a 24-hour front desk. The building’s U-shape also boasts a central zen garden and a rooftop deck that provides one of the city’s best views of the National Mall and the National Cathedral.

The units vary widely in price and size with many upper level units offering ideal city views. The Cairo’s location in Dupont Circle places it just three blocks from the Metro, close to the neighborhood’s many restaurants.

I saw a few units in this building and they have some cool features, especially the exposed brick and rounded windows. It also has 24-hour front desk security. And the location is fantastic.
