Notes
Survey number HABS DC-599
Building/structure dates: 1975 initial construction
Significance: The building was designed in 1975. In most ways it is typical of current speculative office developments. It has a steel skeleton structure with a central service core; open floor plans for leasing flexibility; and utilizes the maximum allowable construction. It constitutes a large volume in the urban fabric. The arcade on the north side might be an amenity in the downtown district, but is underutilized because it does not integrate with the larger axes of pedestrian circulation. Further more this "retreat of shop-fronts located away form the edge of the sidewalk is a device never used in the traditional streetscapes of the district.
