1055 Wisconsin Avenue

Situated along the C&O Canal in the heart of Georgetown, a new, high-end residential building features sweeping views of the Potomac River.

In 2010, BBB was engaged to design a new mixed-use development at 1055 Wisconsin Avenue NW at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and the C&O Canal. The existing site was an empty parking lot used by the Verizon main switch building, and the program for the new building includes seven new high-end condominium units, two ground level retail spaces, and two levels of subsurface parking. Using brick, stone, and steel, BBB’s design reflects a balance between the historic, industrial context of the Georgetown waterfront, the fine grain scale of the Wisconsin Avenue & M Street retail and streetscape, and the picturesque quality of the C&O Canal National Historic Park.
