OPaL's New Homes in DC's Uber Cool Palisades Take Shape

Finalized our logo over the holidays.  Love the font. Cute right?

We settle on the land this Friday and will need to decide in short order which direction to take the architecture.  Below are the vastly different styles we are choosing from. Though I love the contemporary home, I'm leaning toward the more traditional style.  Seems more Palisades.


A modern take on Chesapeake Bay architecture.

The same home as above but with an super contemporary elevation.

OPaL Custom Homes :: Bethesda, DC & VA


We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Cabin John Crossing.  Not just for the national awards and not just for the great friends we've made along the way but also for opening OPaL up to an entire new business model.  Custom Homes.

OPaL Custom is something we've been working on for several months.  We've completed the link on our web site, will have an AMAZING custom model home completed within 60 days and will begin a Custom Home ad campaign this spring.

This is the Part I Love the Most!

There are two times during the development process that get my juices going::  The branding of the project and the watching initial architecture evolve based on Greg and my collaborations.
Our latest project will consist of 40 towns and singles just steps from the Wheaton Metro and Town Center.  Below are the project name suggestions from the staff at One Eighteen in Los Angeles.  Additionally the second round of architecture is both surprising and remarkable!

Our super mod farm-homes in shades of grey and cedar are fun and unpredictable.
And you know we like fun and unpredictable.
And the winner is::  Thirty-nine Up or 39 Up, either way it's fresh and hip.
And you know we like fresh and hip!

New OPaL Homes in Palisades, Does DC Living Get Any Better?

Nope.  DC living does not get any better than an OPaL home in the Palisades. Our latest new home project, Canal Mews, will consist of two homes adjacent the DC reservoir and just steps from the Palisades Safeway, Marvelous Market, the Capital Crescent Trail and Black Salt.  Imagine that, the best cocktails and raw-bar in the District just a few steps from your new home.


GPS Designs is busting-a-move on the home designs, I'll post initial concepts just soon as I can.  This project, tucked between MacArthur Blvd and the Potomac River is uber exciting!
