2501 M Conversion Ongoing
The West End neighborhood in DC will be getting new luxury residential condominiums soon converted from previous office space property. The former headquarters of the Association of American Medical Colleges, located at 2501 M Street, NW, was sold a year ago to an investment group that plans to convert the entire building into a high-end condo property, while adding ground-floor retail and a much anticipated, world-class top restaurant into its mix. The location in the West End neighborhood is a real gem, as it is an easy walk to both Georgetown and downtown DC, and is just south of Rock Creek Park with a lot of recreational opportunities. Residents will be able to walk to two Metro Stations, Dupont Circle Metro Station on the Red Line, and Foggy Bottom Metro Station on the Blue and Orange Lines.
While the upper three floors already house 29 condos called The Westgate Condominiums within the previous office building, the floors will be refaced as part of the conversion. The 9-story building will convert floors two through six into 60 high-end condo units, and the ground floor will be converted into a new lobby, added amenity space, and a top sushi restaurant Nobu will move in. Residents will be pampered by an array of services and amenities. The 2501 M concrete building will be completely redone into a building with a new glass façade, steel frame and cantilever design replacing the current concrete structure.
Each new condo will have high 10-foot ceilings, floor to ceiling glass windows, and private balconies with outdoor space. The new modern design will allow for more natural daylight to enter the building to complement this modern, sleek chic property. The new units will range in size from 1,000 to over 2,000 square feet of living space. Delivery is scheduled for early 2017.
