About the Mendota

The Mendota is Washington’s oldest luxury cooperative apartment building. A walk through the lobby and a ride on the building’s restored Beaux-Arts elevator provides residents with a glimpse into the rich history of this elegant and immaculately-maintained building.

The Mendota’s architectural details include soaring 10-foot ceilings, gorgeous crown molding, tall windows, heart pine floors, and victorian-tiled fireplaces. Building amenities include a staffed front desk and elevator, lobby parlor, courtyard garden, basement storage units, and a bicycle storage room. The Mendota is located one block east of Connecticut Avenue and is within walking distance of two Metro stations.
