Washington, D.C.—Work is under way on The Adamo, a 34-unit condo new-construction building in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C., developed by Perseus Realty. Urban Pace, a D.C.-based condo sales specialist, will begin presales of the units in September.

Perseus Realty acquired the site at 1827 Adams Mill Road in 2012. The existing structure at that location was demolished recently, and work began on the condos earlier this spring. The project is schedule to deliver in about a year.

The Adamo’s one- and two-bedroom residences will start at the $400,000s. 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 was the company’s senior vice president of development.

Perseus tapped the DC firm PGN Architects, which is known for its boutique-style projects, to design The Adamo. According to Perseus executive vice president Adam M. Peters, the site has an unusual trapezoidal floorplate, “so special attention was needed to create proper unit layouts.” The building will also include 8,500 square feet of ground-level retail space, which will feature at least one restaurant.

Alexandria, Va.-based ADG is doing the building’s interiors. The lobby will feature built-in millwork, glass artwork by artist Mindy Weisel, and custom light fixtures. The Adamo’s rooftop will have a grilling station and outdoor seating areas, and offer views down 18th St. toward some of the city’s best-known monuments.
