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.
There are a number of factors that have driven developers to build luxury condos in Georgetown and the neighboring West End. Georgetown's historic narrow streets and active neighborhood special interests groups, coupled with its location on the banks of the Potomac River and its namesake University have left virtually no developable parcels. From a practical standpoint, to deliver new residential housing in Georgetown requires the acquisition and repurposing of existing structures. This is an expensive endeavor and has driven developers to position projects at the very top end of the luxury scale.
Georgetown is home to several luxury condominium developments where the movers and shakers of Washington make their homes. Here are DC Condo Boutique's top five Georgetown luxury condo developments:
- 3303 Water
- Residences at Harbourside
- Residences at the Ritz Carlton Georgetown
- Washington Harbour
- Wormley Row
