The developer of Capitol Hill's newest real estate development has announced it has completed construction and will hold its public opening this weekend. The Butterfield House, at 1020 Pennsylvania Avenue, had already sold about half the 28 units in the building during pre-construction; the developer had been making final improvements over the past month to complete the building.
SGA Companies, a Bethesda-based firm performing both architecture and multi-family development, converted the site from a gas station and auto repair shop to a condominium over the past two years. SGA both designed and developed the Butterfield House, in what is likely to be the last new condo on Capitol Hill proper for the next few years, with no other new construction in the development pipeline on the Hill. About 2650 new condominium units are likely to reach delivery in DC within the next two years, nearly 60% of which will be concentrated in Mt. Vernon Triangle, the new stadium area, and the U Street corridor.
The developer will hold the Butterfield House Grand Opening on Saturday and Sunday, March 22 and 23rd, to celebrate what it hopes will be one of the more iconic buildings on Capitol Hill due to its design and address on Pennsylvania Avenue. The new condo sits just two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro station, and advertises such features as cork sound remediation layering between the floor and subfloor, reclaimed wide-plank cherry floors, underground parking, and video entry systems. Condos range in price from about $350,000 to over $1m. Sales and marketing by DCRealEstate.com.
