Fillmore School Property Lists for $14 Million
The Fillmore School property, located at 1801 35th St. NW, has been listed for $14 million with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty by seller George Washington University, it was announced last week.
The university acquired the historic schoolhouse and its more than one acre of land last year as part of a deal with the National Gallery of Art and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, when GWU took possession of all Corcoran real estate. The Fillmore space has been used by the Corcoran College of Art and Design since it purchased the former D.C. public school in 1998.
In April, TTR Sotheby’s and GWU will begin reviewing purchase offers. Classes will be held in the Fillmore building until the end of the spring semester
Here’s what TTR Sotheby’s International Realty writes in its listing for the 35th Street property: “The Fillmore School is a landmark opportunity in Georgetown. Built circa 1893 and named after President Millard Fillmore, the school served as an architectural and educational anchor for the community for more than a century. The all-brick, fully detached structure encompasses nearly 23,000 square feet of finished space on four levels. Notable features include soaring ceilings, double hung windows, a modern elevator and two staircases. The existing building holds tremendous conversion potential, ranging from condominiums or apartments to office or institutional use. The 1.25-acre site offers parking for 100 cars and frontage on 34th and 35th Streets NW. For more information, visit www.Fillmore-School.com.” The listing agent is Michael Brennan, Jr., vice president of TTR Sotheby’s.
Money from the sale of the 35th Street property will go toward renovation (estimated at about $80 million) of the former Corcoran Gallery’s 17th Street building, which will continue to hold classroom and studio spaces for the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.
