Thanks to a reader for sending word that demo has started at this future office building with retail from Douglas Development:
“1000 F Street NW will be a boutique, trophy quality new 11-story office and retail building located near Metro Center in the heart of Washington, DC’s East End/Penn Quarter neighborhood. The development includes ten levels of office space, ground floor retail with two levels of below grade parking. The project incorporates a two-story designated historic structure at the corner of 10th and F Streets, the facades of which will be restored and the interior completely renovated and fuilly integrated with the contemporary building.
Designed by the highly acclaimed architectural firm Shalom Baranes Associates, this building will seeks to achieve a minimum of a LEED Silver rating. The two primary street facades of the building will be clad with high performance curtain walls composed of terra cotta and metal panels with extensive portions of vision glazing accented by horizontal metal sunscreens. The building will feature multiple outdoor terraces and green roofs tops.”
Missed it in January but Washington Business Journal reported that American Eagle Outfitters would be taking 7,000 square feet.
