Urban Pace Brings Celebrity Stager Meridith Baer to DC for the First Time at Historic Wardman Tower


The premier firm, whose clients have included Meryl Streep and Halle Barry, has staged the interiors for one of four remaining penthouses

(Washington, DC—January 10, 2022) Real estate development advisory firm Urban Pace has engaged famed Los Angeles staging consultant Meridith Baer to further enhance the presentation of one of four remaining luxury residences at Washington’s landmark Wardman Tower community. Boasting an incomparable level of luxury living for the national capital area, Wardman Tower represents the region’s first engagement of the premier home staging company whose services have been employed by the likes of Halle Barry, Meryl Streep, Harrison Ford, and Gina Davis.

Within the past year, Urban Pace has achieved an unprecedented sales pace of seven residences at the historic address of 2660 Connecticut Ave NW. The four remaining penthouses are being released at market-competitive prices.

“Meridith Baer’s distinctive and seductive storytelling approach to real estate presentation matches the spectacular style and prestige of these ultra-luxury residences. We are delighted to add her to a team that already enjoys global reach through its association with the Christie’s International Real Estate network,” said Clint Mann, President of Urban Pace.

Built by D.C.’s legendary developer Harry Wardman, the Wardman Tower residences were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. Inside the Georgian-Revival-style building are sumptuous interior finishes unseen anywhere else in the District. Interior spaces that pay homage to the history, yet resonate with a contemporary sensibility, were designed by the celebrated New York architecture firm of Deborah Berke Partners.

The remaining homes are 4,500+ square feet and two enjoy private roofdeck terraces with breathtaking city views. Pricing now begins at $4.75M.

The Wardman Tower community has been home to a number of celebrated residents who are regarded as the glitterati of the nation’s capital. Previously, Presidents Eisenhower and Johnson, several Supreme Court justices, and Golden Age actor Marlene Dietrich numbered among Wardman Tower’s most famous residents.

The building overlooks Rock Creek Park and is surrounded by 2.5 acres of meticulously designed gardens. Residents have access to two club rooms—one with a catering kitchen and one with a terrace leading to an English garden—along with a fitness center with yoga studio, pilates studio and rooms for personal training, and a rooftop terrace with outdoor grilling.
