Clark Completes Capitol View, Trophy Class Office Building at 425 3rd Street, SW

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Clark Construction Group, LLC, recently completed construction on Capitol View at 425 3rd Street, SW, a new, trophy-class office building in Southwest Washington, D.C. The 317,000 square-foot building developed by Square 537 Associates features twelve stories of tenant space, street-level retail, and three levels of below-grade parking.

Designed by Shalom Baranes Associates of Washington, D.C., Capitol View features a stone veneer precast facade highlighted with punch and curtainwall window systems with metal panel accents. Two roof entertainment spaces on the 11th floor allow for panoramic views of the Capitol building, the Potomac River, the National Mall, and other Washington, D.C. landmarks. Wood veneers, stone flooring and ornamental metal trim highlight the building’s two-story lobby.

The high-end space is designed to attract commercial office tenants such as associations, law/lobbying firms, government contractors, and other businesses to the neighborhood. The owner believes that this building makes a statement about the development and redefining of this area of the Southwest Corridor as “Capitol Hill South,” due to its close proximity to the Capitol and the unique trophy quality, first-class opportunity it will afford private sector tenants.

The project is located within a block of the Federal Center SW Metrorail station, two blocks from the L’Enfant Plaza Metrorail and VRE stations and offers easy access to major D.C., Virginia, and Maryland roadways.

Capitol View recently received an Award of Merit in the “Best Office Building” category of Mid-Atlantic Construction magazine’s “Best of 2007 Awards.”

In addition to the architect, the project team included Tadjer-Cohen-Edelson Associates of Silver Spring, Md., structural engineer; Girard Engineering of McLean, Va., MEP engineer; and Edwards and Kelcey (formerly Wiles Mensch) of Reston, Va., civil engineer.
