Portland living at its peak. A new mixed use project with 12 condominiums and two commercial spaces located at the corner of Congress Street and St. Lawrence Street on Munjoy Hill in Portland’s east End. Urban Dwellings and Gorham Savings Bank bring new services to the Munjoy Hill neighborhood. Above the retail, there are three levels of residences totaling 12 condominiums. Four units on each floor with four different floor plans; all are designed to be spacious with at least two bedrooms plus a den and two and a half bathrooms. The layouts include open living areas, large outdoor decks accessed directly from the living space, and kitchens that are aesthetically appealing as well as functional. Much focus is on space that multi-functions as sleeping rooms, offices, and libraries or dens; there is no wasted space. Much storage is configured into each home, in addition to the bike, kayak and ski storage on the ground floor. There are 18 indoor parking spots for the residents, with either a car lift for a second vehicle or a private storage unit. Amenities include a dog wash and a shared workshop. See 118 On Munjoy Hill
At the Heart of it All. 18 distinctive residences on the corner of 14th and P Streets. Incorporating the historic Pelz Building and facing The Studio Theatre and Whole Foods Market, Cooper Lewis was nicknamed “the fishbowl” due to its iconic presence on this highly visible corner. High end finishes coupled with walls of glass, European kitchens and generous outdoor terraces deliver the definition of a glamorous urban lifestyle. These homes sold for prices in the $800’s to $1.4 million to the “movers and shakers” of high design living in DC. See Cooper Lewis Condominiums
Raise the Ceiling on Life. An 80-unit loft condominium filled a vacant lot at the southeast corner of 14th and V Streets, NW, in the rapidly renovating historic U Street neighborhood. This 72,000 square foot, all new construction, residential condominium features 80 units at a total cost of approximately $20 million. Supporting a dynamic street presence is 7,000 square feet of retail space located at the ground level. Langston Lofts helped many first time buyers due to the competitive prices that started in the $300’s. The units sold out in a record-breaking time of less than six months!
Amazing Space. A transformation of the historic 1920’s automobile showrooms known as Automobile Row into the first authentic lofts in DC. These buildings, with their intricate limestone facades, offered unique features such as 19 foot ceilings, huge showroom windows and elegant fluted columns, ideal for showing off the first automobiles in their heyday and well-suited for creating lofts in the new millennium. The five-story structure blended together a complete renovation and expansion of two historic buildings with a new-construction building on an adjacent lot, offering a unique blend of classic architecture with modern design and convenience. Among the 85 residential units, there were over 37 unique floor plans! Incorporating original features and historically preserved elements such as columns, exposed masonry, and even freight elevators as well as adding new elements of light and space made each unit almost one of a kind. Units ranged in price from $250,000 to $980,000. The project sold out and Lofts 14 was the winner of the 2003 Best Adaptive Re-Use Project Award in the Metro DC Area. See Lofts 14
