Different by Design, Metropole @ 1515 P NW integrates the old with the new

Located at the NE corner of 15th and P Streets, NW, Metropole is a hot location in its own right. With its state-of-the-art gym, beautiful design, and accessibility to anything your heart desires, the Metropole is poised to become a hub of urban activity.

Metropolis Development Company was founded with a vision to create exciting communities that go far beyond the ordinary "white box" architecture found in Washington DC's residential buildings. Metropolis believes that by shaping space on the outside of a building, the inside of the building becomes beautiful and compelling, achieving liberation from the confines of traditional floorplans with light-filled spaces, refreshing openness and simplicity.

Metropolis-DC has a reputation for creating spaces that are Different by Design.

Attempting to capture and record 'the old with the new' I first began my documentation of the architectural and industrial changes along the 14th Street Logan Circle area in July 2005. My Metropole Project would begin six months later when photographing Men At Work on 19 December 2005.

14th Street has long been one of the most important thoroughfares in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Before national highways, 14th Street served as a main artery through the city to points north and south. As 14th Street reaches back into its roots, with a reputation for creating buildings that help to preserve the past while charging boldly into the future, Metropolis DC is on the forefront of 14th Street's renaissance.
