Condos in the new Pacific Row in D.C.’s Dupont Circle are listing for $949,000 and up. (Peter Papoulakos)

In 1791, Pierre L’Enfant’s plan for the city of Washington included “Pacific Circle” — renamed Dupont Circle in 1882 in honor of Admiral Samuel Francis DuPont, a rear admiral in the Civil War.

Today, Dupont Circle is one of the city’s hubs, at the center of a neighborhood filled with restaurants, shops, residences, offices and nightlife.

Pacific Row, a building with five new condominiums at 1713 S St. NW, blends modern interior style with a historic facade. Designed by architect Jonathan Kuhn and developed and built by PT Blooms, the condos have interior designs by Georgetown interior decorator Colman Riddell.

The Dupont Circle area receives high marks for walkability with a 97 out of 100 Walkscore. Residents can enjoy restaurants and shops on 17th and 18th streets as well as Connecticut Avenue and easily walk to nearby neighborhoods, including Logan Circle, Kalorama, Adams Morgan, Foggy Bottom and the West End. The Dupont Circle Metro station is less than a half mile from Pacific Row, and numerous bus lines serve the area.

The units have 10- and 11-foot-high ceilings, seven-inch-wide white oak plank flooring, restored curved glass bay windows, exposed brick walls, Porcelanosa tiles in the bathrooms and stainless-steel appliances and white quartz counters in the kitchens. Two of the five condos are still available, including the first floor Unit #3 priced at $949,000, which has 1,069 square feet with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a rear patio.

Penthouse Unit #5, with 1,429 square feet, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, is priced at $1.449 million. This unit has a private roof deck with a wet bar, a gas grill line, a seating area and an outdoor fireplace.
