Developers of 2251 Wisconsin Ave. Present at ANC 3B’s February Meeting

ANC 3B received a presentation from Charlie Kehler of Altus Realty Partners, who have recently purchased 2251 Wisconsin Ave., the home of Glover Park Hardware and Washington Sports Club.   Altus Realty intends to build a significant new addition behind the current building, with two decks of parking and 81 new studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments.

As part of the project, Altus will “reface” the current retail space, improving and modifying its look.  The new owners expects that both Glover Park Hardware and Washington Sports will stay at 2251 Wisconsin, and are working to get one or two more tenants to fill the long-vacant space in the building that used to be occupied by Meyer Emco.

Construction on the parking deck is expected to begin in late spring, with the full residential project to be completed after approximately 16 months.
