Washington, DC, condo sold for a record $12.8M
One of seven penthouses in the Aramis has waterfront views
A condo sale in Washington, D.C., is one to love.
A 5,800-square-foot, four-bedroom, five-bathroom, two-level condo at the building called Aramis (Latin for “you are loved”) sold for a city record $12.8 million, Forbes reported.
Matt McCormick of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, represented the unidentified buyer.
The unit — one of seven on 12th floor — has a gym, a 2,500-square-foot balcony with waterfront views, floor-to-ceiling windows, and three parking spaces, Michelle Giannini of Hoffman Realty, who represents the building’s developer, Hoffman & Associates and Madison Marquette, told the outlet.
Amenities for the building, which was designed by architect Rafael Vinoly, include a saltwater lap pool, conference room, car elevator with valet service and a fitness and wellness center.
The building is part of the $3.6 billion Wharf project, which includes hotels, parks, restaurants and retail outlets. According to its website, Aramis has sold about 70 percent of its units, with one-bedrooms being sold out. Two-bedroom, two-bedroom with dens, and three-bedroom units are still available for between $1.43 million and $8.4 million, the website says.
The previous record for a condo sale, according to Forbes, was $11 million in 2022.
Washington, D.C, has had an active luxury market of late, including the Georgetown property formed through the combination of three houses — one of which was home to former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy —that was recently listed for $26.5 million.
Jonathan Taylor, of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, has that listing for a trust of the late David W. Hudgens, who combined the three homes into a 16,300-square-foot, 13-bedroom mansion before his death in November 2022.
Still, the record D.C. condo sale pales in comparison to recent luxe condo sales in other parts of the country.
In March, for example, Robert and Carol Garvy sold their condo in Bristol in West Palm Beach to John J. Nelson. for $21 million.
