It's that time of year again when UrbanTurf reflects on some of the DC area's most interesting real estate topics from the last 12 months. This week, we refresh your memory on some of the best, most intriguing and most peculiar things we came across throughout 2023. Enjoy.

The largest residential conversion in DC is on the boards for a familiar DC building. 

Back in January, Post Brothers unveiled plans to convert the Universal buildings at 1825-1875 Connecticut Avenue NW (map) into The Geneva, a sprawling residential development with upwards of 600 apartments. Post Brothers acquired the two buildings, which sit across from the Washington Hilton, from JBG SMITH earlier this year.

The conversion, designed by Handel Architects, would result in a 120-foot tall project with a new facade. The development will include inclusionary zoning units, according to the development team, and will likely include family-sized residences. The two-story theatre building along Florida Avenue will be removed to make room for a redesigned entrance for the new development.

Construction could start as soon as next year. For a look at other conversion projects in the works for DC, click here
