CORE converts 2501 M Street NW from office space to five floors of high-end condominiums and a new ground-level restaurant.
When PRP Real Estate Investment Management purchased 2501 M Street NW, it was an outdated 1980s building. It had three upper floors of condominiums and six lower floors of Class B office space. PRP decided to convert the lower six floors from office space to five floors of high-end condominiums and a new ground-level restaurant. They increased the total floor area by expanding the floor plate of the lower six floors while keeping the top three floors as-is. The building eventually will have 59 luxury residential units with park views and access to an all-new lobby level, party room, fitness facilities, and in-building parking.
Nobu, the world’s most recognized Japanese restaurant, has leased the 11,475 SF ground floor restaurant space and announced that it will open in 2017. CORE will also be the executive architect for the restaurant. Working with Nobu’s design architect, CORE will complete the restaurant’s sushi bar, cocktail bar, main dining room, two private dining rooms, and two private patios overlooking Rock Creek Park.
The project began in May 2014 and was completed in September of 2017.
