Cityline at Tenley, 4101 Albemarle St., NW, Washington DC, 20016
The Cityline at Tenley is a new condo project, with 204 units above the (previously) ever-failing 1940's retail building in Tenleytown, formerly a Sears, now a successful Best Buy. The project also added new retail space to the old Sears site, including hardware store, making it a big box destination, on top of the Metro station, with Whole Foods just across the street. The residential portion included 4 additional stories above above a parking garage that sits on the old rooftop, while preserving the art deco facade. Cityline sits on one of the highest points in DC - with a clear view over the city and even beyond Tysons Corner - from every floor. Developed by Roadside Development in partnership with Madison Marquette. Real estate sales began in March, 2004, and mostly sold out in 2005, just before construction completed. The building offers a small gym and conference room, as well as private garage parking, but the best feature may be the interior courtyard that seems a great distance from adjacent Wisconsin Avenue. Interiors are contemporary, with many having more than ample windows and private balconies. The Shalom Baranes building was designed to appear to "hover" above the retail, separated by parking.
