From a press release:

“In the heart of Adams Morgan, one of the most exciting neighborhoods of Washington, DC, Perseus Realty is developing The Adamo, a 34-unit luxury condominium with contemporary flair. Urban Pace, Washington’s leading condo sales and marketing firm, will begin presales in September.

In 2012, Perseus acquired the site at 1827 Adams Mill Road and began assembling design specialists who could bring the atheistic necessary for such a prominent location. Following demolition of an existing structure on the site, construction began in early April. The project is scheduled to deliver in May, 2015.

The building will include 8,500 square feet of ground-level retail space, which will include at least one new signature restaurant.

Perseus selected PGN Architects to design The Adamo. “PGN specializes in boutique-style projects, and every one of their buildings is distinct,” said Adam M. Peters, Executive Vice President, Perseus Realty. “This site has a trapezoidal floorplate, so special attention was needed to create proper unit layouts. In addition, we wanted each unit to have something special and I think those elements will be apparent when the building delivers.”

Alexandria, VA-based ADG is creating a vibrant interior combining new and different materials with timeless design. Inspired by the eclectic neighborhood, the lobby will feature sleek and modern built-in millwork, vibrant glass artwork by renowned artist Mindy Weisel, and custom light fixtures. The Adamo’s rooftop will have a grilling station and outdoor seating areas.

Unit finishes will include German-made hardwood floors, modern custom kitchen cabinetry from a Canadian millwork shop, quartz countertops, white and green glass backsplashes, and stainless steel appliances by Bosch and KitchenAid. Bathrooms will combine travertine-like porcelain tiles and textured linen tiles. Bathroom vanity cabinetry is designed to “float” on the wall.

The Adamo’s one and two-bedroom residences will be priced from the $400,000’s. There will be 27 underground parking spaces that can be leased by buyers or other neighborhood residents along with bike parking and storage units. Perseus named the development in memory of Mark Adamo, who served as the company’s Senior Vice President of Development.”
