The Towers: A Neighborhood In Itself
When the Towers apartment complex was completed in 1960, it quickly established itself as a unique place to live. Surrounded by trees and lawns and centered on a lush courtyard, the large apartments and the services available offered a quality of living previously unavailable in DC apartments.
The Towers became a condominium in 1979, and the standards of excellence are continuing to evolve to this day. Located in the quiet neighborhood of Cathedral Heights, The Towers offers a community’s worth of beauty and amenities within its grounds.
From the front desk with controlled entry, to the valets and shops, security and convenience go hand in hand. Package delivery and dry cleaning pick-up are available in each building. A grocery store, a tailor and a hairdresser are within an elevator ride. In-unit maintenance is a phone call away. Parking is easily accessible in the underground garage.
A huge swimming pool, a workout room with weight equipment and a sauna as well as a tennis court are available to refresh mind and body. The cozy in-house library is a little oasis for quiet time.
Nearby restaurants make for a night out within walking distance of home and a variety of stores and a pharmacy are just around the corner.
The Towers reflects the city in which it is located, encompassing a vibrant, diverse population. Business people from many countries, young professionals, students and retirees all make 4201 Cathedral Avenue “a neighborhood in itself.”

The enormous Towers, located on a 12-acre site, was one of Washington’s most fashionable apartment houses when completed in 1960. The 620 apartments are contained in two identical thirteen-story irregular T-shaped buildings facing one another and known as Towers East and Towers West. A circular driveway leads to the two-story common lobby, housed in a small, centrally located building connected to the apartment wings by curving glass enclosed corridors. Behind the lobby (and thus between the East and West buildings) is a large outdoor swimming pool and beyond that, adjacent to Towers East, is the tennis court.
