Client DRI Development

1899 Pennsylvania Avenue

Washington, DC

A complete renovation of this building required gutting it to its shell and re-cladding the exterior with the intent of providing a new contemporary exterior and building core. To highlight diagonal White House views, the last bay was clad in a glass curtain wall, which terminates in a landscaped rooftop terrace. Now, with a sleek and modern façade, impressive views, and a highly desirable address, 1899 Pennsylvania Avenue is an inviting location to prospective tenants.

"Our building is on a world-class site on Pennsylvania Avenue, near the White House, and we are delighted with LEO A DALY's design, which is also world-class!  The building's redesign has a modern aesthetic that complements the new World Bank building and yet also provides a design ‘bridge' to its other more traditional neighbors.  Also, the design team did a great job of working with DRI on very tight time constraints - they were flexible and available according to our schedule."
