Cityline at Tenley: A Mixed-Use Gem

Posted by Mark Washburn on Sunday, May 19th, 2013 at 7:10am.


Tenleytown in Northwest D.C. is a desirable location for Washingtonians who commute downtown on the Metro Red Line.  Set amid restaurants and shopping on Wisconsin Avenue, the neighborhood of Tenleytown is well known for sophisticated in-town housing.  One mixed-use residential gem, the Cityline at Tenley, is a 204-unit condominium building at 4500 Wisconsin Avenue set on a historic property across the street from a Whole Foods Market, Starbucks, CVS drugstore, restaurants and shops.

The four-story residential structure has a retail base housing a Container Store, a Best Buy and an Ace Hardware store.  In addition to access to the Tenleytown Metro Station below the building, a bus to Georgetown stops in front of the building.  An American University shuttle runs across the street.  Bounded by Wisconsin Avenue, Albermarle Street and River Road, the mixed-use residential/retail building was formerly both a Sears Roebuck department store and a Hechinger’s home-improvement store.

Today, the remodeled residential/retail Cityline at Tenley condominium building has a modern industrial look.  While appearing to float, it is made of metal and glass.  Generously sized rectangular windows, projecting balconies and recessed terraces shape the look of the Cityline at Tenley.  The historic property now includes garage parking; 24-hour concierge service; and an onsite state-of-the-art fitness center.

Currently, there is one condo available at 4101 Albermarle Street, NW, #635.  A 2 BR/2 BA/1,184 SF Penthouse unit is listed at $719,000 featuring 10 ft. ceilings and a spectacular panoramic view of the city from the balcony.  If you are interested in learning more about this development, here is a resource to view active Cityline at Tenley real estate listings.
