DUPONT CIRCLE—Remember the pop-up fashion igloo? This is the brainchild of the same people who converted an old potato chip delivery truck into a rolling fashion truck, but now they're getting a little more stationary in their delivery. Their igloo opens up on Monday on the patio of Bar Dupont. [previously; CurbedInbox]
BETHESDA—The construction group for Quarry Springs development broke ground this week and the 97-unit luxury condos are underway. The press release about their high-end touches and Barry Dixon-designed club house and lobbies is after the jump.
VERTICAL CONSTRUCTION BEGINS AT QUARRY SPRINGS
Larry J. Goodwin, Principal of 1788 Holdings, announced today that the Estate Condominiums of Quarry Springs has officially broken ground. Davis Construction commenced vertical construction on the 97-unit luxury residential project on River Road in Bethesda last week.
The most significant luxury development to be built in Maryland since Parc Somerset in 1997, the project – known familiarly as Quarry Springs – will include several design firsts. The size of each condominium is among the largest in the region, with floor plans that span to over 4,400 square feet, and are serviced by direct-access elevators, which eliminates the need for common hallways. International interior design star and author Barry Dixon brings another first to Quarry Springs, putting his signature on the project by designing the 10,000-sf clubhouse and residential lobbies for each building. This is the first time in Mr. Dixon's illustrious career that he has ever designed the common elements for a condominium offering.
"The size and scale of these residences inspired us to create the new product category of Estate Condominiums," said Mark Lowham, Managing Partner of TTR Sotheby's International Realty, the firm retained for sales and marketing at Quarry Springs. "Quarry Springs is the first project to satisfy the demands of our most discerning clients in Potomac and Bethesda looking to make a life change. Clients are seeking homes large enough for entertaining and conveniently located near the world-class golf clubs and other amenities of Bethesda and Potomac, but they are no longer interested in the maintenance of a single-family home. Quarry Springs delivers the perfect solution, wrapped with security, privacy and a whole new dimension of convenient luxury."
TTR Sotheby's International Realty has created a preview center for Quarry Springs at 5454 Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase. The center is open Monday through Friday or by appointment. For more information, please contact Zelda Heller or Michael Moore at +1 202 257 1226.
