Sector: 

Clark provided preconstruction and general contracting services for the new construction of this Class-A office building which features 370,000 square-feet of leasable space, an additional 18,000 square-feet of retail and restaurant space at street level, as well as four levels of below-grade parking providing spaces for 225 vehicles.

1700 K Street, NW is a 12-story, 533,000 square-foot structure that replaces two previous buildings. The 17th Street façade features granite materials that complement the historic surrounding architecture. A full-height curtain wall accented by stainless steel is the focus of the K Street frontage. A glass and metal marquis canopy marks the entrance to the building, and the office floors are dramatically cantilevered over the K Street frontage, creating an "open" pedestrian arcade. 

The tenant space offers a high ratio of windowed and corner offices, with eight corner offices per floor, as well as efficient 34,000-square-foot floor plates. State-of-the-art electrical capacity and connectivity support the most sophisticated technology requirements. Other building amenities include an impressive two-story entrance lobby, roof-top deck, private balconies on the top floor, a fitness center and a unique snow melt system beneath the granite sidewalk along K Street.
