Known both by its street address and its original name of the Altamont, 1901 Wyoming is a historic cooperative building that is listed in James Goode’s coffee table book entitled Best Addresses. The book has become synonymous with a reputation for the most elegant and notable apartment buildings from Washington, DC’s golden age of architecture.

THE ALTAMONT Listings for Sale

Located in the Kalorama neighborhood and quite close to next-door Adams Morgan, the Altamont was completed in 1916 to great fanfare as one of the District’s grand residential buildings, with 27 oversized apartments. In 1949, the apartments were converted into 50 cooperative units ranging from studios to three bedrooms. Despite the fact that there are now nearly twice as many residences as there were in the building’s original era, floorplans can still be quite spacious. Two and three-bedroom units can exceed 2,000 square feet. The building had a makeover in 2014 with numerous updates to the common areas.
