New Boutique Condo Project Coming to 17th and Q: Figure 1
1700 Q Street NW

A Dupont Circle mansion is currently being converted into a four-unit condo development that will deliver in late summer/early fall, UrbanTurf has learned.

1700 Q Street NW (map), a home designed by architect Thomas Franklin Schneider and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was purchased in December 2012 by UrbanVibe Developers.

The Q will consist of four two-bedroom, two-bath condos, including a penthouse with a roof terrace and outdoor kitchen. The interior square footage of the units will average out a 1,250, but a few will spread out over 1,600 square feet. Each will have wide-plank wood floors and high ceilings, as well as snazzy amenities like pre-installed cappuccino machines and wine storage.

The units are projected to deliver in late summer/early fall of this year. The architect is Kamm Architecture and the units will be listed by the A|E Group.

    How many million one dollar bills does one need to get one of these?

    This makes me mad. It is listed on the historic register and they plan to cut it up into condos? Sad. Sad. Sad. These buildings are one of a kind.

    Yes, its sad. But when the house was for sale, I am sure no families would seriously consider this house for a variety of reasons. Further, most people can't afford to purchase a property like this, never mind furnish/heat/cool/stan on top of up-keep, etc so this is how things go.

    The exterior of the building will be restored in accordance with the Historic Society. I've seen the finishes this developer uses and these condos will be stunning! I am pretty excited to see this project unfold

    The listed price on this property, as I recall, was 1.5 million. Condos offer a decent, albeit expensive option to home ownership. Given the interior condition at the time of sale, anyone purchasing this would have needed to add 200-400k to keep it a single family home.

    This home sold at auction. It was foreclosed on before it was sold. It's a complete disaster inside. The renovations have already started and the builder is going faster then the speed of light. I hope the builder does everything to code. Curious to see the end result.
