The Alta

Washington, DC / Cunningham | Quill Architects

The Alta site is located in downtown DC on 14th Street in the currently revitalizing neighborhood of Thomas Circle. The 13-story, concrete frame high-rise building has ground floor retail, 12 floors (126 units) of residential space above, and four levels of below-grade parking. This signature, luxury residential tower is distinguished by its modern finishes: expansive windows, exposed ductwork and tile floors create a spacious and clean environment. The Alta achieved status as the first LEED-certified condominium building in the District through the inventive integration of structural and mechanical systems. Landscaped terraces at the second floor and rooftop serve double-duty as “green roofs” and community amenities for residents.
