When Christopher Hanson and his fiance, John Stabile, started looking for their first home to buy, location was a top priority. The couple, renting an apartment in the Northwest Washington neighborhood of Shaw, “both walk to work and wanted to be able to continue to walk after we moved,” says Stabile. “We looked at two-bedroom resales and new construction in the Logan Circle and Shaw neighborhoods before we found 11Park.” 11Park, 1628 11th St. NW, matches another of their priorities: They wanted to be in a boutique building where they could get to know their neighbors, rather than a large, impersonal building.  Read More >

When your building is adjacent to train tracks, a railroad-inspired theme is a natural fit. “We named our new condo development Pullman Place after the Pullman railroad cars, which were the Mercedes-Benz of rail cars,” says George Chopivsky, managing principal of the Fortis Companies, developer of Pullman Place. The lobby of the 42-unit Pullman Place at 911 2nd St. NE in Washington features a wall of reclaimed wood that is echoed with strips of reclaimed wood next to each unit that resemble railroad ties. Chopivsky plans to install black-and-white photos of some of the Pullman cars in the lobby when it’s complete. Read More >
