The Otis – Columbia Heights
809–811 Otis Place, NW, Washington, DC 20010
Fortis acquired two vacant, blighted apartment buildings in Columbia Heights and converted them into 27 condominiums. The project design includes restored original art-deco architectural features, designer kitchens, European tile bathrooms, bicycle storage and private gardens. At The Otis, Fortis was able to create homeownership opportunities at a price point that allowed residents to save almost $10,000 per year versus the cost of renting in the surrounding neighborhood. As a result, the project was 100% sold in 4.5 months.
