Goodman Barrel-Roof Project in River Park

The Charles M. Goodman-designed barrel-roof townhome I listed is under contract but here is another one listed for $575,000. The listing has no interior images and says it is a project. It is a three-level design with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.  As part of Southwest Washington’s urban renewal efforts in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Goodman’s firm designed River Park, a cooperative housing project of townhomes and an apartment-style block built by the Reynolds Aluminum Corporation as a way to showcase aluminum as a building material. Located a block from the Waterfront Metro Station and minutes to from the redeveloped Wharf and booming Navy Yard area, River Park is a gated community on 11 park-like acres with swimming pool, tot lot and gym.
