Real Estate Partners, LLC and Pacolet Milliken, LLC have launched leasing at Ora, a newly renovated rental building at 2144 California Street NW, offering an unprecedented, sophisticated lifestyle in Washington D.C.’s prestigious Kalorama Heights. Situated just steps from nearby Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan, Ora introduces 113 thoughtfully reappointed residences, an exclusive rooftop lounge with tremendous city views and a suite of upscale amenities.

Offering a mid-century profile, Ora has been architecturally preserved, while the interiors have been upgraded to meet today’s ever-changing rental lifestyle. Featuring studio, one- and twobedroom residences, the building is situated mid-block, nestled along California Street, a treelined corridor known for its Georgian Revival aesthetic, providing a respite to the urban bustle of city living, all the while having the city at one’s fingertips and being mere steps to all of life’s daily conveniences.

Forrest Perkins, an award-winning D.C.-based interior architectural firm, was tapped to reinterpret this Art Deco inspired structure and bring it up to the standards of modern luxury. Blending the area’s timeless elegance with modern sensibilities, Ora offers a fresh take on creative and comfortable work-life balance. Each residence features European-inspired kitchens that combine Blanco Maple quartz countertops, Exotic Walnut plank flooring, polished chrome fixtures and stainless-steel appliances. The living spaces feature oversized windows boasting various views of D.C. landmarks and floor plans that cater to a variety of lifestyles. From the street level, the stepped down lobby-lounge featuring art by local D.C. artist Michael Crosett evokes the feeling of a hidden jewel that dissolves into an expansive first floor of amenities appointed with private banquettes, a coffee bar, a communal work table and private seating areas.

Elevating Kalorama’s urban lifestyle for the next generation of discerning residents is Ora’s exciting suite of amenities. The rooftop sky lounge and terrace come complete with grilling stations and showcase 360-degree vistas of Kalorama, D.C.’s historic monuments and Arlington. The ORA Club will serve as a luxe gathering space for residents to meet and mingle. Additional amenities include a double-height fully equipped fitness center with Peloton Bikes, a dedicated pet spa, convenient on-site covered parking, bicycle storage and resident storage lockers.

One of D.C.’s most affluent neighborhoods, Kalorama is situated just moments away from the historic Woodrow Wilson House, Mitchell Park, Phillips Collection and Embassy Row in the Northwest Quadrant of the city. Since the 1800s, the small tranquil neighborhood has served as home to the nation’s power elite, counting five presidents as current and former residents.

Prices for Ora’s unique junior one-bedrooms, which are the perfect option for renters seeking the privacy of a one-bedroom for the price of a studio, begin at $2,365 a month; one- and two bedrooms range from $2,945 to $4,520 a month. The 113 residences span from 525 sq. ft. to over 800 sq. ft. For additional information or to schedule an appointment, please contact the leasing team at 855.333.2838 or visit
