Downtown Lakers, Dwight Howard, has included an attic in Washington, D.C., where he spent last season with the NBA Wizards, for $ 2,475 million.
The 10,134 square foot residence occupies the upper two floors of the historic building of the Pierce School, an 1893 school that became a nine-unit residential development about a decade ago.
Designed by German immigrant Adolf Cluss, the attic has 30-foot ceilings, original bricks and period accessories. The school’s original blackboards, lockers and cubicles were preserved and incorporated into the new attic design.

An industrial steel staircase leads to a private rooftop patio with 360 degree views. A full gym and a block bottom pool are among the building’s amenities.
Howard, 34, bought the property two years ago for $ 2.3 million, according to records.
The great veteran, now in his sixteenth season, is an eight-time stellar player and three-time NBA defensive player of the year. After joining the Lakers this summer in a one-year contract, he has averaged 7.7 points and 7.6 rebounds in 43 games this season.
