The National Building Museum will be sponsoring a tour of the Butterfield House, at 1020 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, on Friday, June 27th. The organization, a Congressionally-chartered institute to enhance more thoughtful and architectural techniques, sponsors its monthly tour to "highlight special construction methods and innovative technologies used in the building process. Some tours have focused on green building strategies, while others have examined preservation projects of historic buildings."
SGA Architects, a Bethesda-based firm performing both architecture and multi-family development, converted the site from an auto repair shop to a high-end condominium, completing the project earlier this year. The developer is now selling the remaining 8 units in the 28 unit building, and is celebrating what will be an iconic building due to its classic design and Pennsylvania Avenue address.
The new condo sits just two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro station and Barrack's Row, 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 start at $359,000 for one bedroom and at $575,000 for two bedrooms.
