Washington, DC — Urban Investment Partners (UIP) of Washington DC has unveiled Frequency Apartments, a 100-unit luxury apartment community located in a former northwest Washington, DC office building that housed National Public Radio affiliate WAMU.
UIP acquired the building at 4000 Brandywine St., NW, along with two other properties, from American University in 2016. The company has now completed a $14 million year-long 36,000 s/f gut renovation and a 14,000 s/f addition to the building, which is just one block from the Tenleytown-American University station on Metrorail’s Red Line. UIP joined with Tenleytown Main St. to officially open the neighborhood’s newest multifamily residence.
“Frequency is our most contemporary apartment community to date,” said UIP principal Steve Schwat. “The name is derived from its history as a radio station and recording studio for WAMU/NPR programming, including the syndicated talk shows hosted by Diane Rehm and Kojo Nnamdi. Situated on one of the highest elevations in the District, Frequency has an unrivaled location within easy walking distance of Metro, American University, Whole foods, Starbucks, Panera, Best Buy, and dozens of other shops and restaurants.”
