I think we’ve judged this building in the past. It’s one of my favorites. From a press release:

“Douglas Development today announced that Habitat for Humanity will lease 5,800 square feet in the Douglas Development-owned property at 1424 K Street, NW. Habitat for Humanity will move into the 6th floor of the newly renovated building. Renovations of the building include a modernized lobby, with rich marble finishes; renovated elevator cabs; new windows; and contemporary restrooms.

National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is the second non-profit to sign a contract with Douglas Development this week. NED will increase its office space from 50,000 square feet to 65,000 square feet in the historic Woodies Building. Occupying prime Downtown real estate at 1025 F Street, NW, NED is located above retailers, H&M, Zara, and Forever 21, along with Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum.”

    This seems like a reasonably elaborate building for non-profits to set up in, doesn’t it?

      why, are non-profits deserving of a crappy space instead?

    I also find it amazing how much non-profits waste on high dollar real estate. As a for profit business, I’m in a prime location, but my office building is a shithole. I guess because at the end of the day less rent = more salary.

    If I worked for a non-profit, I’d clamor for a shittier office and market based wages, but I’m not a non-profit hipster that wants to bemoan how much I give up in life for the “common good” over a happy hour PBR tall boy.

    pop-up owner,

    you seem really insecure

    did you lose your girlfriend to a skinny-jeans-totting altbro

    I’m confused… I thought that DC Habitat just moved into a new office in a Dupont alley. I’ve been there, and it’s very appropriate for a non-profit (ie. functional, but not fancy). Is this the national organization that’s moving downtown?
