Wildwood Apartments will consist of 11,000 square feet of ground floor retail and 95,000 square feet of multi-family residential uses that will be age-restricted to persons who are 55 years of age or older. There will be 60 total residential units, 8 of which will be moderately priced dwelling units (MPDUs). The building owner has a rich history in Washington DC’s built environment. His father was the architect for a number of the District’s art deco treasures including the High Towers in DuPont Circle and the Majestic in Columbia Heights. His personal connection to the art deco style and his love of its timeless appearance lead him to continue this legacy at Wildwood. The building will be made out of buff brick with buff vertical and horizontal accents. There will also be panels below the windows and vertical fins that have the appearance of brushed aluminum. The building’s towers will also be topped with a material similar to that of brushed aluminum that will catch the sun during the day and will be lit at night. The art deco theme will be carried throughout the building in smaller details such as wall sconces and signage.
