Guest Post: Checking Out 360° H
Photo of a two bedroom unit's kitchen by Alan Page
Reader Alan Page writes in to describe his recent visit to 360° H, the new mixed-use development on the north side of the 300 block of H Street.
I had an opportunity to visit 360° H (the apartment complex right above the new Giant at 3rd and H) and I was able to learn a lot about the building. As you may already know, the building offers studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms. The building features a 24 hour concierge, a private entrance to the 24 hour Giant (so you don't even have to step outdoors to get that jar of spaghetti sauce you need), a gym, a courtyard, a party room (with pool table, TVs, etc) that can be rented for private parties at $150/hour (or accessed for free, as long as you don't mind other residents walking in to enjoy it with you) and free wi-fi throughout the building.
