Uncommon Spaces Column Showcases Historic Renovations Bringing Sedgwick Gardens, The Parkway and The Archer to Legacy Grandeur

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, March 15, 2019 – – Three DARO-owned buildings in its 10-property portfolio were showcased in Architecture DC Magazine’s Uncommon Spaces series for recently completed historic renovations. Renovations and enhancements to the magnificent properties were undertaken by ownership to bring back to original historic splendor DARO’s Sedgwick Gardens (1931) at 3726 Connecticut Avenue, NW; The Parkway (1927) at 3220 Connecticut Avenue, NW; and The Archer (formerly, Cathedral Court, 1925) at 3701 Massachusetts Ave, NW.

DARO’s commitment to rehabilitating, restoring and preserving historic properties are among a core set of values, along with their dedication to offering tenants the comfort of modern amenities, class-A service, a sense of community and a focus on sustainability.

“There is nothing as satisfying in my work as a completed project that modernizes and breathes new life and elegance back into a property and in turn allows tenants and visitors to experience the legacy of an era in their day to day,” said Carissa Barry, President of DARO Management. “We are so proud of the work on these three buildings, and I hope that our residents – existing and prospective – will enjoy the restorations for some time to come.”

The inset of contributing architects to Sedgwick Gardens and The Archer omitted Andrew Wilkinson who provided Interior Design alongside Bonstra | Haresign Architects.
