THE HISTORY

Developer Brook Rose calls The Helicopter Factory an ode to the red brick industrial building’s earliest owner — Emile Berliner (1851-1929).  Berliner was an inventor who worked on and developed products like the flat disc gramophone, a new type of loom to mass produce fabric, an acoustic tile, a gyro engine, and an early version of the modern helicopter.

From 1902 to the mid-1920s, 770-774 Girard St. NW was home to the Standard Material Co. and the Gyro Motor Co., where Berliner and his son-in-law, Joseph Sanders, developed a material for record manufacturing, a system of improving sound reproduction and record quality, and aeronautical engines.

 

THE HELICOPTER FACTORY IS UNDERGOING A RESURRECTION TO BECOME AN INDUSTRIAL LUXURY HALLMARK OF THE WASHINGTON DC COMMUNITY.
