Casey Trees New Headquarters in Brookland

Thanks to a reader for sending the heads up. The Casey Trees Web site says:

In 2008, after a three year search, we found a suitable match in Brookland. Two properties located across the street from each other – 3030 and 3015 12th Street NE – will serve as our new office and tree yard respectively.

For our office, we are retaining and renovating the existing 4,000 square foot structure and adding an additional 4,500 square feet. The final building will feature a large conference room to accommodate our year round education programming, a staging area for planting materials and volunteer activities and other amenities including an elevator.

We have designed the exterior to include a rain garden, a bio-retention planter and a greenroof. We intend to use these exterior elements to demonstrate how even a small building, if designed correctly, can help slow and filter stormwater from the site and street, reduce energy consumption and produce several other environmental benefits.
