10 Reasons Why 1221 Van is Perfect for Roommate Living

Streamline your social life by living with a roommate at 1221 Van. From spacious open floor plans that are ideal for hosting holiday parties to separate bathrooms that are great for individual self-care routines, our two-bedroom apartments create multifunctional, yet personalized living experiences for roommates.


So. Much. Space.

Our spacious two-bedroom units make it easy to create communal areas that comfortably accommodate roommates without invading each other’s personal spaces. Have the option to hang out playing video games in the living room together or opt for a more solitary situation watching bad holiday Netflix movies in separate bedrooms.


Ideal for Entertaining

Open floor plans provide a prime layout for throwing the group chat’s holiday party. Get a crackling fire video playing on the TV, string up some festive lights on the terrace, heat up some mulled wine on the stainless steel stove, and we’re in holiday party-throwing business. 


Host for the Holidays

Invite the fam to Washington, D.C. for the holidays and impress them with your 1221 Van residence. They’ll feel those vacations vibes as soon as they set down their bags on the vinyl “wood-inspired” flooring and take in the high-end features of the kitchen and bathrooms.


Never Run Low on Laundry

With a washer and dryer in every unit, 1221 Van residents never have to worry about schlepping a hamper down to the basement or sending their laundry out with a service.


Separate Bathrooms

Roommates have no need to worry about the length of each other’s self-care Sunday rituals. Our two-bedroom residences also include two and a half baths to accommodate everyone’s bathroom routines and avoid Sunday scaries at all costs.


Roommates’ Best Friend

Who said roommates had to be human? Share space with your animal in our pet-friendly apartments.


Throw Parties in the Lounge

That same group chat is back and ready to move things up to the next level. An indoor social space, the 1221 Van Lounge features dining banquets, grill, and a wet bar. Settle into the comfy couches and host a watch party in the screening area or move things outdoors and cheers to living the dream next to our firepits.


Did We Mention the View?

Wow your guests with 360-degree views of the Nationals Stadium, the Capitol, Washington Monument, and Anacostia River from the killer rooftop. When the weather decides not to be frigid, go for a dip in the infinity pool, lounge in the sun, or catch the big game in stadium seating with your roommate.


Challenge Each Other in the Gym

 Make your roommate your workout partner too by tackling your fitness goals together. Our state-of-the-art K!ck Fitness Center comes fully equipped for an energizing workout or restorative yoga session. Namaste, residents.


Explore the Navy Yard Together

 Discovering new places to eat, drink, and shop is infinitely better when you have someone to explore your neighborhood with. Especially in Navy Yard, there are always festivals, tastings, and performances all year-round.
