The Cairo Condominium is located at 1615 Q Street, NW, a landmark in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, and is the District of Columbia’s tallest residential building. Completed in 1894 as the city’s first skyscraper, the 164ft tall brick building prompted local legislation to limit the height of subsequent buildings that continues to shape the District’s skyline. The Cairo has secured entry, front desk and top views of the City from its spectacular rooftop deck.

This historic Cairo Condominium has an exotic Egyptian theme with gargoyles perch high above the front entrance. Winged griffins stare down from cornices, along with elephants supporting the front windows and fourth floor dragon and dwarf crosses.

The stone front steps lead up through the lobby and lounge with Egyptian columns and a marble floor. A large mirror pictures adorn the lobby’s walls with two square columns of red-orange marble anchoring the space in front of two elevators. Between the elevators is a stairway that leads down through double glass doors into the stone garden central courtyard.

The building’s rooftop deck provides one of the most complete views of Northwest DC’s skyline, including Catholic University, the National Cathedral, Georgetown, the Washington Monument, and the Capitol. The AIA Guide to the Architecture of Washington, D.C. says: “For all its quirks, the awkward tower reigns as one of Washington’s guilty architectural pleasures.”
