The Lexington is a conventional low-rise apartment building, erected in 1928 by developer Charles Sager to house a portion of the city's expanding middle class at the eastern edge of Capitol Hill. The Classical Revival-style building is one of the earlier apartments by the prolific residential architect George Santmyers.
Completed in 1928, the Lexington Apartments is historically significant for its reflection of early twentieth century development patterns in the District of Columbia. It developed with the emergence of street car lines on Capitol Hill. Its design contributes to the evolution of the apartment building form in Washington.
