Designed by Davis Carter Scott of McLean, Va., the 530,000-square-foot office building features a facade of polished granite and two-toned precast concrete. Employees and visitors enter the building through a lobby highlighted by a three-story atrium with 36-foot arched steel trusses supporting a decorative suspended ceiling of square tube beams and acrylic panels. High-end millwork with stainless steel accents and stone trim adorn the lobby’s interior.
Four levels of below-grade parking are included, as well as 25,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Two small parks, owned by the National Park Service, were preserved and extensive precast pavers and benches were added.
In addition to Clark and the architect, the project team includes Smislova, Kehnemui & Associates of Rockville, Md., structural engineer and Girard Engineering of McLean, Va., mechanical and electrical engineer.
The Law Firm of Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP
At 250,000 square feet, the law firm of Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP is the largest tenant at 901 New York Avenue. Their high end offices, built by Clark Interiors, features a state-of-the-art data center on the concourse level, a mailroom, and an in-house PC repair center. Attorney offices, along with a cafeteria and catering operation, are located on floors five through 11. The main reception area, multiple conference room facilities, caucus rooms, and video deposition room are located on the 11th floor. Designed by Davis Carter Scott of Washington, D.C. with many upgraded finishes, the space features detailed featured wall systems, hardwoods and specialty metals as well as glass. Custom veneered doors in aluminum frames, integrated sidelights with matching stain grade accents adorn each floor. Secretarial stations are crafted from custom-made millwork, and include integral lighting, lacquer cabinets, cloth tack panels, glass with stone tops.
Highlighting the office space is a six-story monumental stair, which is enhanced by custom lighting fixtures. Its surrounding wall is curved full height glass in steel and aluminum shoes, which becomes the glass handrail at the landings and continues down the spiral on each side of the stair. The rail itself is composed of stainless steel tubing and supports. The full height glass wall shoes double as the back supports for the millwork-lacquered panels, which accent each landing. Integral to the stair are the glass entry doors, which abut the curved glass walls.
Clark Interiors also completed the offices of the law firm of Goodwin Procter, LLP on floors six through nine of 901 New York Avenue. Designed by SKB Architecture & Design of Washington, D.C., the 96,000-square-foot space includes attorney offices and conference rooms, highlighted by a feature stairway constructed of glass, stainless steel, wood and stone that connect all four floors. The perimeter offices are highlighted by custom millwork door frames with veneer doors and glass transoms along the top of the partitions. The secretarial stations feature custom-made millwork cabinets with plastic laminate finishes, fabric wrapped panels and plastic laminate counter tops. A large feature wall connecting all three floors along the monumental stair is made up of fabric wrapped panels, millwork and stainless steel reveals and serves as the focal point of the space.
Boston Properties relocated its office to the fourth floor of 901 New York Avenue and also was built by Clark Interiors. Designed by Gensler of Washington, D.C., this elegant 27,000-square-foot space consists of a large reception area, four conference rooms and two team rooms along with multiple perimeter offices. With many upgraded finishes, the design includes a feature wall with a custom millwork servery and fabric wrapped panels on one side and stone on the other. The reception area is most impressive with a stone floor with a carpet insert and a large custom millwork reception desk. Millwork and white lacquer panels adorn the elevator lobby. The conference rooms are enclosed with full height glass partitions and doors on the corridor side and fabric wrapped panels on the interior walls. The team rooms enhance the corners of the building with radii walls complete with a specialty paint finish and six feet diameter light fixtures over the conference tables.
