The Lauren to Have In-House Sommelier

We already know The Lauren will include such perks as private elevators, around-the-clock concierge service, a fitness center and a $10.5M penthouse. But 1788 Holdings and Persimmon Capital Partners decided to take luxury to the next level, with Jarad Slipp, a master sommelier, who will provide on-site consultations, tastings and educational workshops in the building's 1,500 SF wine lounge. Slipp will run the program each quarter from the lounge, which will have private, climate-controlled wine storage unit for residents, Bethesda Magazine reports. Plus, the building's first residents will get a one-year membership to Virginia winery RdV Vineyards, where Slipp is the estate director. The Lauren is a 29-unit luxury condo building at 4934 Hampden Lane that very well could become home to the most expensive condo unit in DC's history. Prices start at $1.5M. [BethMag]
