Thanks to an ongoing conversion by DDG and Westbrook Partners, the historic Standish Arms Hotel will soon debut 31 new condominium residences. Situated at 171 Columbia Heights, the 12-story building was originally constructed in 1903 and designed by Frank S. Lowe. Now dubbed The Standish, the building features a brick, terracotta, and limestone façade with high-arch windows at the base and wide bay windows above. DDG is serving as the design architect as well, with HTO as the architect of record.
The grand lobby has been redesigned to reflect its original lofty height with porcelain and marble finishes.
Upon expected completion in 2018, the interiors will feature beautiful homes ranging from one-bedroom residences to gorgeous penthouses. BuzzBuzzHome recently uncovered a residence page on the building’s website, featuring beautiful interior renderings of the soon-to-come homes. Each has been designed to reflect classic turn-of-the-century design and the Beaux-Arts aesthetic.
Residences feature white oak flooring and wide windows.
Inside, elevated ceilings and wide windows will make for generous living spaces and panoramic city vistas. Homes will be naturally finished in Cararra marble, wide plank Austrian white oak flooring, and specially crafted wood accents. Custom-designed kitchens will host Shaker-style cabinetry, premium Bertazzoni-Italia and Bosch appliances, and natural brass Fantini fixtures. Bathrooms will feature rain showers, travertine and mosaic accents, Fantini fixtures, undermount sinks, and freestanding tubs. Select residences will offer private rooftop terraces, and all will offer ample storage space.
