The Willison Condominiums

Located at 1425 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20005 | Logan Circle

With just 23 spacious residences, the Willison is an eight-story condominium in Washington, DC’s Logan Circle neighborhood. Redeveloped in 2002 by Abdo, the brick and limestone structure was originally an apartment house dating back to 1927. The building was gutted and recreated with far fewer, and much larger condo residences that offer a winning combination of contemporary and traditional style. Floorplans are primarily one bedroom plus a den, two bedrooms, and two bedrooms plus a den. There are also oversized penthouses at the top with up to four bedrooms and 3,500 square feet of space.

Logan Circle has been a hotbed of real estate development in recent years, a response to the ever growing need for more housing in the nation’s capital. This has resulted in a fascinating blend of different construction styles and methodologies. Historic buildings are one of the backbones of the neighborhood, ranging from rowhouses to old apartment buildings, as well as former commercial structures that can be transformed into residential living space. Notable condominiums in the neighborhood include the Berret School Lofts (a former schoolhouse dating to 1889), Rainbow Lofts (a former auto body and paint garage), Citta 50 (one a coal factory), and Cooper Lewis (a former hardware store).
