Urban Pace Reps “Liz” Residences on 14th Street



(Washington, DC—July 30, 2019) Urban Pace, a recognized leader in luxury residential development and placemaking, has been exclusively engaged to represent Fivesquares Development and Whitman-Walker Health in the presentation of “Liz,” a singular collection of 78 modern apartments at 14th and R Streets NW. “Urban Pace is delighted to present a one-of-a-kind residential experience. Now leasing, these exquisitely designed apartments offer residents the highest-end condo-level finishes rarely seen in the District, a powerful community connection, and a rare opportunity to share in Liz’s transformative vision,” said Matt Dewey, COO of Urban Pace.

Developed by Fivesquares Development in partnership with Whitman‑Walker Health, “Liz” is designed by renowned Selldorf Architects, and is their first project in Washington DC. The 78 residences, range from studios to 2 bedroom+ den units. The residences offer floor-to-ceiling window lines with soaring ceiling heights of at least 9’6”, views and light from all sides—with some private landscaped terraces. Liz is situated in the heart of 14th Street, surrounded by endless amenities and culture.

With its limestone façade and expansive windows framed by terracotta, Liz balances natural warmth with modern precision to shape a new landmark at 1357 R Street NW. The Liz name honors the lifesaving work of the Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center which is being transformed into a new Whitman Walker Cultural Center celebrating both the history and future of the building.

Together with new outdoor spaces and retailers including Bluestone Lane Café, Sephora, and more, Liz will add to a neighborhood already rich in amenities.

“As a new centerpiece for the vibrant 14th Street corridor, the beautifully crafted architecture and thoughtfully considered spaces at “Liz” embody a signature brand of quiet luxury. We are excited to partner with Urban Pace as they understand our vision and they bring a unique level of expertise in both the luxury rental market and this historic neighborhood.” said Ron Kaplan, Principal at Fivesquares Development.
