Dupont Circle Brownstone
Home of The Real World: Washington D.C.
2000 S Street NW
Washington, D.C. 20009
The 10,800 square foot, four-story Brownstone office building was built in 1891 and is located at the southwest corner of S Street NW and 20th Street NW in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington D.C. The Brownstone was designed by architect George S. Cooper and built by real estate developer Theodore A. Harding.
The Brownstone was purchased in 1998 by Doug Jemal of Douglas Development. According to Washington D.C. property records, the Brownstone is valued at $5.69 million (2010 assessment). Prior to the renovations for the filming of the series, the Brownstone was leased to Sorg & Associates architectural firm. Previous tenants reportedly include Blockbuster Video, an Ethiopian restaurant, a lesbian bar and a church.
The first two floors were renovated for the filming of the series with the production crew occupying the upper two floors. All of the interior renovations were removed shortly after filming ended. In early 2010, Papadopoulos Properties began marketing the 2,700 sq. ft. 1st floor as available for lease. In March 2010, Laogai Museum signed a ten year lease for the 1st floor and HealthHIV leased the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Brownstone. They announced plans to preserve the main entrance on the 2nd floor as it appeared during the filming of the series.
