Snell Properties has acquired its first luxury community in Washington, D.C., Elysium Fourteen. Developer Madison Investments sold the 2017-built property for $43 million. According to Yardi Matrix, the property became subject to a $34.2 million refinancing loan, provided by Blackstone Group.

Madison Investments constructed Elysium Fourteen on the site of two historic buildings, initially built in 1897 and 1904. Developers renovated the old buildings and constructed an adjacent nine-story tower. The property now also includes 12,800 square feet of ground floor retail. In addition to Elysium Fourteen, Madison Investments recently completed Elysium Logan, a 32-unit luxury condominium development in central Washington, D.C.
