The Most Expensive Condo Ever Listed in DC

One of the most expensive listings sold in the region this year was also the most expensive condo ever listed in DC. Penthouse 2C at the Ritz-Carlton in Georgetown sold earlier this year for $11 million, after being listed for $14.5 million. One of five penthouses at the Ritz-Carlton, the 5,500 square-foot home is the combination of two units purchased in 2006 by philanthropist Michelle Smith. Smith, who died in 2020, was the daughter of Robert H. Smith, who developed much of Crystal City. In addition to 5,500 square feet of interior space, the condo has an 1,800 square-foot terrace with views of the Potomac River. Smith invested approximately $20 million into the purchase, renovation and build out of the residence.
