Everything in The Bond, from the floors to the appliances, is top of the line. This makes it feel like a place you actually want to live, and more importantly care for and respect. I find myself wishing my lease was longer! I couldn't… See More>

          The apartment is in a great location, near different restaurants and activities throughout DC. It is close to universities (GW, Georgetown) and close to metro stations (Foggy Bottom and Dupont) allowing one to go everywhere at anytime. I'm very pleased.

                            Thank you for your kind review of The Bond. We are thrilled you joined our community! While we are glad you feel safe, and we are located in a wonderful part of the city, please remain vigilant! The video intercom system in your apartment is a wonderful feature to help with this. At the same time, remember the convenience of being able to call the Concierge from the video intercom in your apartment, should you ever like his assistance when on duty. This will ring the phone on his desk. You mention the location, which we like to call in the "sweet spot!" We are located several blocks from both the Red Line at Dupont Circle and in the other direction from the Blue, Orange and Silver line at the Foggy Bottom stop. Some of our residents work in Georgetown and on the K Street Power Corridor, and walk to work! It is a great location! Above all, we believe it is the community of residents that makes The Bond a great place to live. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you. Welcome home to The Bond!

                              Thank you for your kind review. We agree, it is a great location and The Bond offers great value relative to many of the other buildings in the area. The Bond is a smaller, boutique community. To that end, there is one elevator and no parking facility. The Bond is accessible to the Red, Blue, Orange and Silver line Metro, the Circulator bus, Metro buses, Bike Share and is located in a very walkable neighborhood. To those with a car, there are five nearby garages that provide 24/7 access to its monthly patrons. For those who want to park on the street, we are located in Zone 2, which allows for 24/7 parking. For those who would prefer to not have a car but once and awhile, an Enterprise CarShare car is parked in a reserved space, at The Bond. As an aside, The Bond has a rich history! It was built in the 1920s, was owned by the IMF, and recently beautifully renovated. Architects designed European-styled kitchens in the apartments with custom cabinetry and great appliances. English gardens were planted with over 155 trees and bushes in the gated courtyard and front gardens. The designers and fabricators of the New York Saks Fifth Avenue canopy designed and fabricated the canopy now on The Bond. White marble with white marble mosaic insets grace the lobby in a manner that is both understated and elegant. Please let us know if you are considering a move due to affordability. We will explore with you options that may better fit your needs. Above all, we are glad you have enjoyed living here. We would love for you to stay! Thank you once again, for taking the time to write. It is greatly appreciated. Please let us know how we may best assist you... and, while here at The Bond, welcome home!

                                Thank you for your wonderful review speaking to the design of the living space and the great location of The Bond. This means a lot, given the hours of thinking and careful planning that went into the design by the developers. They took a 1920's building that was part of the IMF Concordia Hotel, and turned it into an elegant apartment community. I know months were spent to design the apartments to have a clean, warm and open feel; with soft close cabinets in the European-design kitchens to the real slate and wide plank white oak floors of the living space. Landscape architects were hired to design the English gardens. The entrance had many nuanced changes that included beautiful white marble mosaic floors and a canopy designed and fabricated by the same who designed and fabricated the canopy for Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. While recommending The Bond, some with the highest rating, I do see that noise and office staff were rated less. I would love for you to call, stop by or email, mcjohns@oculusrealty.com, with what has been less than excellent. We would love the opportunity to address these concerns, and improve your experience here at The Bond. We treasure your input and your residency! On behalf of the staff at The Bond, thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We hope you will live here for a long time! We would love to deliver service to you that is exceptional. I hope to hear from you!

Moreso, thank you for taking the time to enter this on ApartmentRatings.com. Much appreciated. You mention the prompt and efficient maintenance. This is directly due to our professional maintenance crew who quickly respond and continue to learn and grow in their trade. They take a lot of pride in their service to the residents and in their work. They are consistently rated 5 out of 5. Thank you for highlighting their service. Oculus Management also has a 24/7 online maintenance reporting service, where the maintenance staff can keep the resident updated regarding the status of their maintenance request. Many residents have found this to be helpful. Aria Developers used a keen eye in creating an apartment home with clean-looking design and finishes - the European kitchens, Silestone counters, NEST thermostats, white oak floors, and more. Again - hope you have an opportunity to come back. As you mention - Great area, close to Red, Orange and Blue Metro lines, great restaurants, lots to do and convenient to many sources of employment. We all at The Bond, send best wishes and safe travels.

                                          I'm going on my third year living at the Bond and never want to move. As long as I live in DC, I want it to be at the Bond. The facilities staff, management office, and front desk staff are always incredibly helpful and friendly… See More>

                                            The location was perfect: The Bond is located exactly equidistant from the Foggy Bottom Metro and Dupont Metro. My one complaint: Ward Place is a VERY NOISY little street. Cranes like to set up shop here every Friday-Sunday and make as much noise as humanly… See More>

                                              Thank you for your residency at The Bond. We appreciate your kind words, your time and consideration in posting on ApartmentRatings.com. It was a pleasure to be of service to you during your stay. The construction on Ward Place has since completed and we are appreciative to residents who kindly withstood the noise as we continued to work to ensure they minimized their impact on us! Thank you! Thank you for your kind words regarding staff. This was meaningful for all of us as we work hard to meet the many demands. Words of appreciation are always greatly appreciated, then taken as motivation to do even better. The Bond has enabled many who want the prime location to be able to afford it. We have a great community of residents, who are as well, great residents of the Washington, D.C. community. Should you ever be looking to rent in the West End, please consider another stay at The Bond! We'd love to have an opportunity to welcome you home again!

                                              The Bond is a beautiful building in a very nice neighborhood. The apartments are on the smaller side, but they are well-designed and the appliances are very nice. The Bond is reasonably close to several metro stops, but does require a short walk.

                                                Thank you for your review of The Bond. We are always looking to improve and have recently added staff and procedures to help best service the residents. We agree, the building is elegant and the location, a "sweet spot." The developers took a historic building, once owned by the IMF, completely renovated it, added a canopy designed and fabricated by the same who did so for Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, designed and added courtyard access, hired landscape architects to develop beautiful English gardens, and put beautiful finishes in the apartments: slate, oak, glossy white and stainless. Thank you for appreciating this design work. The neighborhood offers residential, retail and commercial, close to many employers and within four/tenths of a mile from the red, blue and orange lines. Thank you for your residency at The Bond. It is our pleasure and honor to be of service to you.

The developers chose a great location and rather than tear down the historic building previously owned by the International Monetary Fund; they designed a beautiful renovation.

                                                  The renovations of this old office building are well thought out and make for a very livable environment. The staff is great. The location is terrific, centrally located with access to all modes of transportation. I got rid of my car and couldn't be happier.
