Willoughby Condominium

The Willoughby of Chevy Chase is a large high-rise condominium building in Montgomery County, Maryland, on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. It was originally designed by award-winning, modernist architect Vlastimil Koubek and opened in 1969 as the Willoughby Apartments. The Willoughby Apartments was built for luxury rentals, and when it opened, it was the largest residential building in the DC area.

The Willoughby project was built in 1965 by Washington developer Milton A. Barlow, however the firm ran out of funds and the completion of the building was taken over by the loan financier, Riggs National Bank. The Willoughby changed ownership hands several times and, ultimately, was sold to First Condominium Development Company of Chicago, specialists in condominium conversions. Apartment sales and control of the condominium turned over to unit owners in 1982.

There are 815 units including efficiencies, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, commercial office space, a convenience store, 701 parking spaces, and a restaurant. The building allows smoking but prohibits pets and was built with many luxury amenities: an exercise room, 24-hour staffed desk, laundry rooms, library, party room, rooftop lounge, and pool.
