The Willison - Logan Elegance With An Edge
DC condos developed or renovated by Abdo Development usually elicit a wow from a potential buyer during a visit. Abdo has left their mark across several DC neighborhoods including the Willison in Logan Circle, which they renovated in 2002. Prior to the restoration, 1425 Rhode Island Ave was a circa 1928 apartment building known as the Chamberlin.
To create desirable 21st century condos, Abdo reconfigured the interior layout of the Willison reducing the original 71 apartments to 23 luxury condos. The restored condos feature large open floor plans ranging in size from 1,500 SF to 1,900 SF. Front units at the Willison overlook tree-lined Rhode Island Avenue and rear units feature dramatic floor-to-ceiling walls of glass in the living room. Willison upper-level units have fantastic views of the city.
All Willison units are either 2 BR / 2 BA or 1BR + Den / 2 BA configurations. Original developer finishes included cherry or maple cabinetry, granite counter, under-counter wine coolers, gas fireplaces and master shower with limestone and European glass enclosures.
Currently, two units are available for sale at the Willison. including a 2 BR / 2 BA with 1,504 SF listed for $699,000 and a 2 BR / 2 BA with 1,520 SF listed for $774,900. Here is a resource to view active Willison real estate listings.
