The Otis was a vacant, decrepit building for quite some time at 809-811 Otis Place in Northwest with the back of the building along Georgia Avenue. The Redding, across the street at 812 Otis Place, NW, was also in disrepair. But Fortis, a DC-based real estate development and investment company, seized the opportunity to bring the buildings back to life with the name of the legendary musician Otis Redding.
The Otis & The Redding condos feature art deco design elements. The contemporary kitchens will include stainless steel appliances, Silestone countertops, and glass tile backsplashes. Bathrooms will contain modern fixtures, European tile, and dual-flush toilets. The bedroom closets will feature Elfa shelving to maximize storage space. Plus, each unit will have hardwood floors.
The Otis & The Redding condos feature amenities like a private landscaped garded with a community grill. Secure bike storage is also available.
The Otis & The Redding condos are three blocks from the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro station and a 10 minute walk to the Columbia Heights Metro station. There are also multiple Capital Bikeshare stations nearby.
The condo development is near the “Hip Strip” on 11th Street in Columbia Heights with an assortment of indie bars and theater like the Wonderland Ballroom, Meridian Pint, Room 11, and Bloombars. Plus, The Otis & The Redding condos are also close to the new Petworth Safeway on Georgia Avenue, which is scheduled to open in 2014. Public parks are nearby too; Raymond Playground is one block north, while Bruce Monroe Community Park is just a few block to the south.
