New Condo Spotlight: 2501 Pennsylvania Avenue
Playing up the association with another Pennsylvania Avenue address, 2501 bills itself as an elite new building between Georgetown and the Capitol. By Matt Carr

What: 2501 Pennsylvania Avenue

Number of Units: 16

Floor Plans and Sizing: The condos range from a 2,200-square-foot two bedroom with 2.5 baths to a 4,500-square-foot three bedroom and den penthouse with 3.5 baths.

Prices: $1,900,000 to $5,000,000

Luxurious Touches: Can’t stand the sound of traffic? Each unit comes with sound attenuation, which almost completely blocks out noise from Pennsylvania Avenue’s bustling rush hour. All units are fitted with eco-friendly, wide-plank wood flooring, which comes in teak, Brazilian cherry, and oak. The 10-foot ceilings in the majority of condos are complimented by numerous well-placed, light-filled windows. Some residences include terraces.

Perks: Each unit comes with two parking spaces and additional storage. The two efficiencies on the first floor can be purchased by residents only, for use as servants’ quarters.

Security: All residences come wired for a security system. There’s also a 24-hour doorman and 24-hour closed-circuit television monitoring system.  

Location: Close to Georgetown and Dupont Circle and just a few blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro, the building sits in the midst of some of the area’s best dining, shopping, and nightlife. Trader Joe’s is just a few feet away on 25th Street.

So What’s Wrong With It? Aside from exorbitant prices in a bad market, scaffolding remains on the building and the sidewalks are a mess from construction delays. Look for it to clean-up within the next 45 days.

Number Sold: Only one, but the official opening was Tuesday.
