Citta 50 Condos For Sale, Washington DC
Washington, DC is well known for condominiums that are adapted from other prior uses, such as former schools, shipyards or grand hotels. But Citta 50 has one of the most interesting histories of all. This modern boutique development with stylish floor plans was once a coal factory! Condos for sale don’t come cheap here, though. Prices typically range from the mid $500s to seven-figure territory. The development is located at 1450 Church Street NW in the Logan Circle neighborhood.
The coalhouse in question was designed in the early 1900s by John A. Lankford—DC’s first registered African-American architect. The square three-story brownstone with large factory windows was later abandoned after the 1969 race riots. But around 2006, developer Andrew Economakis and architects Bonstra Haresign began an ambitious adaptive reuse project, which entailed using the original factory as an anchor, with a new five-story structure to the side and a seven-story wing to the rear.

Additional Info About Citta 50 Condominium Residences

Church Street in Logan Circle has long been known for its warehouses, automotive body shops, and other industrial use. Over recent years, however, many of the commercial structures have been converted to upscale condos for sale. Citta 50 is yet another example, offering an appealing hybrid between the original historic warehouse and the new, glass-dominant contemporary wings.
This fabulous Logan Circle neighborhood is surrounded by other popular DC communities as well, including Dupont Circle to the west, the U Street Corridor to the north and Downtown to the south.
