The Alta at Thomas Circle, delivered in 2006 by PN Hoffman, was DC's first LEED Certified residential condo building. From low VOC paints, low-E glass, compact fluorescent lighting, water saving appliances and a wonderful rooftop garden, the Alta set a high standard for green building in the District.

Urban modernism adeptly defines the architecture of the Alta development. The modern building facade features floor to ceiling windows and a rooftop steel pergola which supports climbing plants.  Unique developer interior design elements at the Alta included acrylic privacy panels, aged birch frameless cabinets, brick walls, bamboo flooring, 9-ft exposed concrete ceilings, track lighting and exposed ductwork.

Building amenities include ground-level retail, resident lounge, rooftop terrace with monument views, concierge and underground parking.  The Thomas Circle location of the Alta offers the utmost in convenience to all the venues and attractions in Logan Circle, Downtown and is just three blocks to the McPherson Square Metro Station.

Currently, two condos are for sale at the Alta including a 2 BR / 2 BA / 950 SF unit listed for $699,000 and a 2 BR / 2BA / 900 SF turnkey furnished unit listed for $575,999.  Here is a resource to view all the active Alta at Thomas Circle real estate listings.
