If you’ve visited Adams Morgan lately, it’s likely that you noticed the razing Exxon Mobile, making way for a construction site at Adams Mill Road and Calvert Street (map). What’s to come is a boutique condominium—by developer Perseus Realty, LLC and architectural firm PGN—that will transform that formerly blighted site into a bustling hot spot. It’s called The Adamo and it is slated for completion in May of 2015.

The Adamo sales were launched last month by local firm Urban Pace and 30% of the condominium’s 34 one- and two-bedroom units have already sold.

For more information, or to keep abreast of the building’s milestones and upcoming events fill out the VIP List form (under heading CONTACT) at The Adamo homepage, here.

Among The Adamo’s most distinctive features are floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek, modern interiors, designed by Akseizer Design Group. Unique sliding-glass barn door walls, quartz countertops, wood-style plank flooring and Kitchen Aid and Boss appliances all come standard. Some of the homes come with moveable kitchen islands, and buyers have the option to purchase audio/visual prewiring for surround sound.

The rooftop features a large deck, with seating, grilling and a fire pit, open to all residents. Four private rooftop spaces are purchasable for $75,000, though two have already been sold. The Adamo’s ground floor includes a modern lobby, with vibrantly colored glasswork by artist Mindy Weisel, as well as 7,800 square feet of retail space. The specific retail businesses have yet to be announced, but one of the four spaces is slated for a restaurant.

While lower Adams Morgan is not particularly accessible by Metro, The Adamo’s location in Adams Morgan ideally located just a few blocks from the Woodley Park Metro Station on the Red Line. It is located within a block of the Circulator and Metro Bus Stations, as well as the Walter Pierce Park. Within four blocks of The Adamo, residents will also find dozens of cafes, resturants and bars, including Tryst, Jack Rose Bar, Bourbon, Cashion’s Eat Place and Perry’s. 

Pricing for one-bedroom condos, which measure around 640 square feet, start in the low $400s and two-bedroom condos, measuring around 1,000 square feet, start in the mid $600s. Garage parking and additional storage are available on site.

Prospective buyers interested in viewing floor plans and possible finishes should make an appointment to visit UrbanPaces’ The Adamo sales office at 1919 14th Street NW. Visit the website for more information, at Adamodc.com.
