Designed by WDG Architecture of Washington, the 160 high-end condominiums are highlighted by chef-caliber kitchens with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Bamboo floors adorn the foyers and living areas and are highlighted by dramatic walls of windows. Four residences on the first floor are reserved for artists’ live/work studios and there is an elevated courtyard at the third floor. Amenities include a fitness center, high-tech resident E-lounge, two-floors of below-grade parking and first floor retail and restaurant space.
In addition to working in a tight urban site, challenges include incorporating an existing building into the scheme and preserving a historic facade, working with structural projections from adjacent buildings and party walls, relocating a 24” concrete storm/sewer line that passes diagonally through the property, and the managing building’s proximity to the FBI and Federal Election Commission headquarters.
Project team members include SK&A of Rockville, Md., structural engineer; Carlyn & Company of Great Falls, Va., interior design; Brawer & Hauptman of Philadelphia, historic preservation architect; and, The Fitch Studio of Washington, D.C., landscape architect.
