Tenleytown commercial building eyed for hundreds of apartments


The sprawling commercial building at 4000 Wisconsin Ave. NW is slated to become hundreds of apartment units, according to the Washington Business Journal.

The building — located at the corner of Wisconsin and Upton Street, a half-mile south of the Tenleytown Metro station — was constructed with offices over retail space in 1988. But burgeoning demand for housing in D.C. transit corridors has sparked multiple plans for apartment conversions — including the adjacent Fannie Mae headquarters and another nearby Fannie Mae office in Van Ness.

The 4000 Wisconsin project, from the Donohoe Cos., would offer 716 apartment units and retail space, possibly including a large Total Wine & More shop, according to the Business Journal. Construction would take place between 2019 and 2024.
