Metropole to Start Sales


Metropolis Development will begin taking appointments today for the Metropole, its 90-unit condominium being built at 15th and P Streets across from the Logan Whole Foods. The first phase of sales was stopped in April 2005 after the developer sold a third of the units, and will resume when the newly remodeled sales center opens next Friday. Initial sales will be by appointment only. Metropolis has hired HGTV design star Cecconi Simone for interior design of the building and sales center; the latter will feature a fully equipped model unit. This will be the first regional project for Toronto-based Cecconi Simone, which has a large international portfolio of boutique hotel renovations and condominium design. This will be the fifth local project for DC-based Metropolis, which recently completed Cooper Lewis condos less than a block away. The Metropole will offer both public and private parking as well as a variety of retail, including VIDA Fitness and Bang Salon. Residents will be offered "hotel-style" concierge service when the project completes late this year. Marketing and sales by DCRealestate.com

It looks like it will be a fine addition to the neighbourhood. Beautiful architecture also! Are we still calling this the "MidCity Loft District"? Or did this name not stick? I liked it!

Was there a post this morning about the Whitman Walker building at 14th and S? Is it missing, or am I losing it?! :)

There was an article about the Whitman Walker Clinic getting sold to Metropolis Development (developers of Metropole), but it was in the Washington Business Journal. It is in the paper that came out today, March 16, 2007.

The WBJ is reporting the Whitman Walker story today, though it is not a certain deal yet. We at dcmud are looking at this development and should have something newsworth on it next week ... stay tuned.

Well if MDC delivers this building the same way they have delivered 1400, 1401 Church and Cooper Lewis, prospective owners better be aware of the sheer incompetence of the team they are dealing with....they will be long on promises and short on everything else....which is a shame since this is a nice building on paper!

Based on experience and looking at other developments - MDC surpasses many developers. The sheer level of design is fantastic along with location of property. I would kill to live in on of their buildings over numerous developers in this town. They may have had issues in floors, etc but that is the sub contractor and not the developer. I think the Metropole will be a signature proerty similar to 3303, The Columbia, Rtiz, etc...

Does anyone know actual pricing for some of these units? Like what a 2br goes for?

Pretty sure 2brs start in the low $800,000s

I have a contract on a unit in the Metropole. I just came from the newly designed design center and it's gorgeous! I loooove the standard package options! My unit cost $515k, but I got in 2 years ago. I was told that the units will not be ready until Jan 2008 (initially told fall 2007). It's no big deal to me though. Call Chris Mundy @ 202.667.3776 to schedule and appointment. Also, the website is http://metropolestyle.com/
