“Akridge and Mitsui Fudosan America announced today the grand opening of 1200 Seventeenth Street NW, a 170,000 square foot, commercial office building, two blocks from the Farragut North Red Line Metro station in the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District. The trophy class building is designed to achieve the highest level of environmental sustainability, LEED Platinum.
Ideally located near three Metro lines, the building offers glass on all four sides, expansive ceiling heights, efficient floor plates, a full service 2,500 square foot fitness center, and a best-in-class Client-only rooftop event space framed by a landscaped green roof. 1200 Seventeenth has immediate access to myriad retail, dining, and hospitality amenities on Connecticut Avenue, just steps away. 1200 Seventeenth Street NW features floor-to-ceiling glass and column-free efficient interiors. The building accommodates 9’0” ceiling heights throughout the space and has views of St. Matthews Cathedral to the west, National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to the east, and the Washington Monument to the south.
Akridge and Mitsui Fudosan America developed 1200 Seventeenth with an ambitious vision to deploy forward-thinking, efficient design and sustainable features. The building design integrates water-saving fixtures that create a 40% reduction in water use, low-emitting materials and ample ventilation to increase air quality, and abundant daylight and views to enhance the quality of life and overall work environment for its occupants. Additionally, the building’s construction used 20% recycled content and recycled over 75% of the construction waste generated, and the building will generate 35% of its power from green power sources. The building features a state-of-the-art, dedicated outside air system (DOAS) with VAV controls, averaging 33% more efficiency than a conventional VAV system.”
