Sales have officially started at WY18, the new condominium project in the heart of Adams Morgan at 1801 and 1811 Wyoming Avenue NW (map), as a full gut renovation of the two buildings nears completion. The new WY18 sales office also recently opened and is located at 2206 18th Street NW (map).
WY18 consists of two four-story buildings — the Warrington and Wilmington — originally built over a century ago by local architects Ernest C. Hunter and G. Neal Bell. There are four or five condominiums on each floor at WY18, ranging in size from approximately 400 square feet for studios to 1,316 square feet for two-bedrooms. (WY18 offers studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms.) Eighteen of the newly renovated condominium homes have been reserved for former residents of the two buildings. With the help of Long & Foster’s Danai Mattison, Urban Investment Partners (UIP) is busy writing new sales contracts on the rest of the 25 homes.

Once the extensive renovations are complete, the individual condominiums will feature modern floorplans with restored hardwood floors and new kitchens with quartz countertops, GE Café Series appliances, under cabinet lighting and glass pocket doors leading to large pantries. The condominiums are also outfitted with amenities like GE stacked front-loading washers and dryers, convenient cell phone recharging and iPod docking stations, and color audio/video access control systems. Each condominium is smart-wired for phone, cable and internet, and most have 9-foot ceilings and a private balcony or terrace.
The buildings and the individual condominiums have all new electrical, heating and air conditioning, plumbing and fire-alarm systems, as well as a shared communal garden with benches and a water feature. The most valuable amenity at WY18 might be the large, multi-level roof decks on both buildings that are outfitted with wet bars, natural gas for a barbeque grill, benches and tables, and last but certainly not least, amazing views of downtown DC.
“The individual condominiums are spectacular, with an abundance of light streaming in through the huge windows openings,” Steve Schwat of Urban Investment Partners said. “Hall and vestibule spaces have been opened up, while many libraries and studies have been preserved with their original cherry pocket doors, which are pieces of art in and of themselves. At WY18, the old and the new come together in an artistic way that I could not have envisioned at the outset of the project.”
