The Âme at Meridian Hill

The Âme at Meridian Hill

Grunley performed the adaptive reuse of this former Howard University dormitory into an apartment building named The Ame for Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners (Jair Lynch). This was Grunley’s first project with Jair Lynch and our first total building renovation of a multi-family property. The renovated 180,695 gross square foot apartment building offers more than 200 new, modern rental housing units in the Meridian Hill Historic District. The building features mid-century classic finishes, an indoor pool and the creation of penthouse lounges and a rooftop terrace. Additionally, the project complies with Washington DC’s green codes. Work began April 2017.
