The Adora Project Details

The Adora’s is a conversion of and addition to the historic bakery building at 1827 Wiltberger to create a mixed-use retail, office and residential project. The existing bakery building will become retail space on the street and below-grade levels, office space will occupy the second and third levels, and nine two-bedroom, luxury condominium units totaling 15,000 square feet will comprise the new fourth and penthouse levels. Six residences will be built on the fourth floor and three on the penthouse level. Nine surface parking spaces will be available. The building is expected to offer bike storage, common and private outdoor spaces.

The 2 story brick warehouse was most recently used as a distribution warehouse for food and vending machines. The project is located just a few feet from The Shaw at Ellington Plaza at 608-618 T Street. The two developments largely transform the short block.

Due to the property’s historic and landmark designations, developers must adjust their plans for concept, alteration and addition to the building. The Board found the concept for alterations and additional floors being added to be compatible with the character of this industrial complex of buildings, but asked that the color, window-to-wall proportions, and top floor of the new construction element at the corner continue to be studied, that the detailing of the additional floors continue to be simplified, that the storefront detailing be further developed, and that a preservation treatment plan for the historic building be developed.
