714 Madison Street NW: ground-up 2-unit condominium building

Tucked between two medium-sized apartment buildings in the rapidly developing Brightwood neighborhood, this property hosted a dilapidated, older free-standing single-family home on a deep lot. The owner purchased the property to build an all-new, modern 2-unit condominium building to market to young professionals in search of a spacious home but priced below similar developments in the nearby, overheated neighborhoods of Petworth, Columbia Heights and U Street. The new building takes its cues from the row houses across the street, offering side-by-side duplex residences rather than first and second floor flats, resulting in the feel of a row house with open public spaces on the ground floor and private bedroom/bath areas upstairs. The project features two 2BR/2.5BA condominiums.
