The Skytop Suite at Perla.

Perla, Shaw’s newest luxury condominium, has garnered a lot of attention since debuting in April. With the sales gallery now open and the property slated for an early fall completion, its 66 residences are selling quickly.

Prospective residents can now schedule appointments for hard hat tours or tours of the off-site Perla model home at the sales gallery, which boasts all of the property’s high-end finishes. In June, a complete on-site model home will also be available for tours.

Appointments can be made via the website here or by email at sales@perladc.com. Stay tuned by visiting the Perla website.

Residences at Perla boast some of the best views in Shaw.

“Perla has the unique advantage of being surrounded by historic properties that are governed by height restrictions,” says McWilliams|Ballard founder Ross McWilliams. “Perla residents will enjoy unobstructed views of the Washington Monument, National Cathedral and beyond.”

Among the residences garnering the most attention at Perla are the oversized two-bedroom units and the elegantly designed penthouses, which are set back from the street and feature huge terraces that act as an extension of the interiors.

Two of the penthouses also feature living rooms, kitchens and master bedrooms wrapped in smart windows that change from clear to opaque at the push of a button.

Each Perla home impresses with finishes that combine rich materials, layered textures and innovative details. Interiors were designed by Olvia Demetriou and include eight-foot wood entry doors, nine-foot ceilings, wide plank oak hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows outfitted with MechoShades.

The kitchens feature Italian cabinetry, creamy quartz countertops and chef-inspired appliances from Thermador. Bathrooms feature custom, double vanities adorned with quartz countertops, spacious soaking tubs, expansive frameless glass showers and warm LED lighting to create spa-like atmospheres.

Perla boasts a host of beautifully curated amenity spaces, including an elegant lobby lounge with a fireplace and a full-time front desk concierge. The building’s Skytop Suite entertaining space is complete with a fire pit, daybeds and ivy-covered trellises that frame spectacular views of the city. Perla has a private garage with available electric car charging stations, as well as bike and resident owner storage.

Perla is located in the heart of Shaw surrounded by open-air eateries, beer gardens, coffee houses and art galleries and is within walking distance of everything from grocery stores to fitness centers. Shaw is also uniquely positioned between downtown DC (with easy access to the National Mall) and all of Northwest DC’s most popular neighborhood destinations.

In addition to penthouse units, Perla features one-bedroom and den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom and den residences (starting from the mid $800s), as well as a limited number of one-bedroom homes (starting from the mid $600s).

The Skytop Suite features a custom catering kitchen.
