1601 K Street displays a style that is elegant and distinctive. Located two blocks from the White House, its neo-classical design makes a powerful statement amid the buildings that surround it. Its facade will feature pre-cast concrete, detailed spandrel panels, curtain wall, stainless steel, granite and limestone. A stainless steel canopy will denote the building’s main entrance on 16th Street. WDG Architecture of Washington, D.C. is the architect of record.
Accented by premium finishes, the two-story lobby features polished stone from Spain, South Africa and Pakistan, plus two types of Makore veneer and stainless steel. Typical floor plates in the building are 20,000 square feet with nine-foot ceilings. Tenants will enjoy concierge service, a fitness center and roof terraces on the 9th and 11th floors.
The project design team includes Girard Engineering of McLean, Va., MEP engineer; Tadjer Cohen Edelson Associates of Silver Spring, Md., structural engineer; and Wiles Mensch Corporation of Reston, Va., civil engineer.
JBG has leased 75% of the building to the law firm of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart. Scheduled completion for the project is Spring 2005.
