The Cavalier (Hilltop Manor)

3500 14th Street, NW

This imposing apartment building opened in 1927 as Hilltop Manor, an appropriate name given its topographic position, general prominence, and Renaissance Revival architecture. The building was one of a number of collaborations between architect Harvey H. Warwick and developer Morris Cafritz.

Later named Cavalier Apartments in 1929, it was among the earliest cooperative apartments in the District of Columbia. Cooperative apartments were a housing phenomenon that arose in D.C. in the 1920s, promising to give more control to resident owners and afford a high level of services by spreading costs among them.
