How much does it cost to live so close to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? At the Adele, a 13-unit building slated for completion in the first quarter of 2018, condos start in the $600,000s for small one-bedrooms, and top out at $2.4 million for a 2,000-square-foot penthouse. The building sits on the former site of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, which has since relocated to swanky new headquarters in NoMa.

Designed by architect Jane Nelson and interior designer Michael Hampton, the Adele promises wide-plank oak flooring, smart home technology, private rooftop terraces, and custom kitchens and closets. Buyers of the largest, most expensive units will have the option to work directly with the architect and designer to choose finishes.

Here’s your first look at renderings of what the condos will look like when they’re done.
