The Intersect at O Townhomes complex, in D.C.’s Shaw neighborhood, is part of the City Market at O redevelopment of Northern Market — a 19th-century public market — into apartments and townhouses.

These townhouses are made of concrete and have four levels of living space, with a roof terrace on the top level. Each townhouse has an elevator connecting all the floors to one another and to a private underground garage with a charging station and storage space.

Each unit has a brick and steel exterior, and a fenced front yard with a patio.

A primary suite on the third floor has an en suite bathroom, two walk-in closets and a balcony.

A bedroom on the second floor overlooks the living area through a window with an electric shade. There is a hall bathroom and either a full laundry room or a laundry closet. An additional bedroom is beyond the hall bathroom in three of the four available units.

The roof terrace has a gas fireplace, an electric grill and wiring for a television. Inside, a lounge has a wet bar with seltzer water on tap, an ice machine and warming and cooling drawers. This level also has either a full bathroom or a powder room. Townhome 02, the decorated model unit, and Townhome 04 have an additional bedroom beyond the powder room. Townhome 05 has a den, and Townhome 01 ends at the bathroom.

The first-floor living area has an 18-foot ceiling and radiant floor heating. This level also has the kitchen and a powder room. All appliances in the units are LEED Gold-certified for energy efficiency.

Engineered oak flooring is used throughout the townhouse. Stairs are steel with tension wire and wood treads. The model unit, Townhome 02, staged by Boxwood Interiors, can be bought turnkey (move-in ready) for an additional $44,170.

The kitchen has Thermador appliances — refrigerator, induction stovetop, dishwasher, wine refrigerator and two electric wall ovens. Counters and backsplashes are Calacatta Laza quartz. Walnut kitchen cabinets match the media center in the living area.

Each townhouse has a bathroom or a powder room on each floor. All units include Calacatta Laza counters, wood cabinetry, wall-mounted faucets and backlit mirrors. First-floor powder rooms have tile in a chevron pattern behind the vanity and wood floors. Second-floor hall bathrooms have a vanity, a shower-and-tub combo, light gray wall tile and dark gray floor tile.

The primary suite bathroom has a double vanity and a backlit mirror. The sinks and soaking tub are by Victoria + Albert. The shower has a rain head, wall-mounted wand and a tile bench, all behind a frameless glass enclosure. The walls have light gray tile and the floors dark gray.

Intersect at O Townhomes is part of the City Market at O development and shares amenities with two nearby apartment buildings. Access to these amenities is free the first year and $600 a year after that. This includes the largest rooftop amenity space in D.C., atop 880P, with a lap pool, firepits, a dog run, a demonstration kitchen, a music room, and City Fit Gym and Spa.

Owners of Intersect at O Townhomes units have access to the concierge at the nearby Intersect at O Apartments for package and mail acceptance. A trash porter takes out and returns garbage cans placed outside the garages.

“This enclave of townhomes is part of City Market at O, where you are living in your own new elevator rowhome, and you have every amenity a full-service building has to offer,” said real estate agent Jennifer Felix. “Living within City Market also puts you within a minute walk to eight Michelin Star restaurants,” she said. “The community is also easily walkable to the retail, entertainment and restaurants of the 14th Street Corridor and Atlantic Plumbing” — a residential and retail development.
