Upper Wisconsin Ave. Condos, Past Sales

There are quite a few condo buildings on or near upper Wisconsin Ave. traveling from the Friendship Heights area of D.C. up through Chevy Chase and Bethesda. I have been ogling this one at 4301 Military Rd., N.W. ever since it went up. I love the architecture, the green lawn and the location, right next to the Friendship Heights Metro and behind Chevy Chase Pavillion.

At least two apartments are selling in this building at a good discount from the original prices, so I want to pass this news on to any lucky duck who can afford them! When it was first built I swear the developer was advertising units “starting at $990,000″ or something close to that.  The building is on the D.C. side of Western Ave. overlooking the canopied entrance to Friendship Heights/Chevy Chase.

More construction is underway across the street (kitty-corner) from this building, next to Bloomingdale’s, but I understand the housing component will be luxury rentals. Plans for a new condo building on Wisconsin Ave. next to the southern Metro exit seem to be stalled. I wonder if/when the GEICO parking lot area will go under the bulldozer, as it also seems to be prime real estate for more housing. 

Here’s some data on recent condo sales on the Maryland side of this corridor, since this is where most of them are for now. The average price per sqft is over $500 but condo fees vary (generally $500 – $900 a month).
