Another ritzy D.C. penthouse condo comes to market Thursday, and while this one wouldn’t set a record if sold at its asking price, it would be the runner-up.
The owner of Penthouse 2A in the Ritz-Carlton Residences Georgetown is asking $11.5 million for the unit — at 6,100 square feet, it is the largest in the luxury condo building. The two-level home, with five bedrooms, five full-baths and two half-baths, is listed by Daniel Heider of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
In addition to its indoor space, and access to the Ritz-Carlton’s hotel amenities, the penthouse overlooking the Potomac River touts 3,000 square feet of private terraces, spanning 112 feet in length and offering sweeping views from the National Mall to the Key Bridge to the Arlington skyline.
Accessible by a private elevator, the unit features limestone and Brazilian cherry floors, formal living room with fireplace, chef’s kitchen with SubZero and Wolf appliances, primary suite with wraparound windows, espresso bar, private study and twin dressing rooms.
The unit is owned by an LLC registered to a Gregory R. Burgess. Heider declined to speak about the owner, and Burgess, through Heider, declined to be interviewed. He bought the unit for $9.5 million in December 2021, briefly setting the record for D.C.’s most expensive condo ever sold, until it was smashed by another Ritz-Carlton Residences penthouse, then again by a condo at The Wharf. It is unclear why the unit is coming to market less than two years later.
Burgess is the former owner of 576 Innsbruck Ave. in Great Falls, according to public records, a 21,500-square-foot mansion that sold for $10.5 million in June 2022. Another LLC tied to Burgess acquired Georgetown’s Power House at 3255 Grace St. NW for $5.5 million in November 2020.
