Ground-floor retail in the building includes a Busboys & Poets restaurant, and nearby, in Takoma’s main street historic district, residents can find an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. The Takoma Metro station is also nearby.

Developed by Federal Capital Partners and Level 2 Development, Takoma Central includes studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments that lease for $1,485 to $2,810 a month.

The building was designed to blend in with the architectural character of the neighborhood and to meet LEED standards for sustainable and healthful living. The entire property, which is managed by Bozzuto Management Co., is smoke-free. The sunlit lobby includes seating areas and features works by local artists curated for the building.

The 434- to 1,100-square-foot apartments feature open floor plans, wide-plank oak flooring, granite countertops, maple cabinets, Energy Star appliances and high-efficiency water-saving features.

Building amenities include a private courtyard with a fire pit and outdoor grills, a fitness center, a resident lounge, a business center, an Internet cafe and an automatic package concierge. The building also has bicycle racks and preferred parking for fuel-efficient cars.
