The onyx on first is without a doubt my favorite building Ive ever lived in. The staff top to bottom is an all around pleasure to work with, building layout, and also location! I am planning to sign my fifth lease next year.

My comments may be shared for marking purposes: My fianc'' and I just relocated from NY to DC in early November, and had no idea where to live in DC. The first building that we came across was Onyx on First, and after weeks of researching, we were led back to Onyx! Arlene and Tyesha made the move-in so smooth and easy. When we decided we didn't need the larger unit we moved into, Tyesha without hesitation allowed us to move into a smaller unit. When any sort of issue arises, Arlene handles it the day-of. You are never left asking questions, as she has already taken care of it! The units and facilities are clean and comfortable. The concierge is always friendly, and takes care of all of the packages in a timely manner. Not to mention, the metro is literally a 60 second walk with tons of new restaurants popping up around the Navy Yard. We couldn't be happier that we chose to live here at Onyx on First. Thanks, Arlene and Tyesha!

Onyx on First is a great place to get to know the city, the Navy Yard and all of the opportunities that abound in the area.

The Onyx has done a great job of making sure we feel at home. They were more happy to help during our move-in process, and have been nothing short of spectacular since moving in. Our maintenance requests have been answered in a timely fashion, our packages are always easy to pick up, and the building is always kept clean. Overall, a wonderful place to live with an unbeatable D.C. location!
