A multi-million dollar Georgetown condo is now off the market. The property, formerly owned by Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Capitals and Wizards, reportedly went under contract and sold.  Leonsis had the 2,500 square foot condo on the market for $3.2 million. According to records, he purchased the unit in 2009 for $2.59 million. Along with a multi-million dollar price tag, the property also mandates monthly homeowner’s association dues topping $2,000.

Captain and Tennille……Rogers and Hammerstein……Siskel and Ebert……Hall and Oates……Sid and Nancy…..Cheech and Chong……Georgetown and luxury condos…….yes if you are playing a word association game with a Washingtonian, it highly probable that they would put Georgetown and luxury condos together in a pairing.

The  District is home to several wonderful condo developments whose buildings had a prior life as a DC public school.  With very limited vacant land, height restrictions and an ever-growing demand for upscale lofty condos, these school conversions are a concept that works well in the District for both the city as well as the developer.  In other parts of the country, many old and underutilized school buildings end up on the losing end of an encounter with the wrecking ball.

Common attributes of DC schoolhouse conversion projects include high ceilings, over-sized windows, exposed brick and outdoor courtyard areas.  Many school conversion projects have taken advantage of the ceiling height to create a loft environment.
