About 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue
1001 Pennsylvania Avenue is a Trophy Class office building located on Washington’s most prestigious thoroughfare. The building contains fourteen levels of above-grade office space of approximately 763,000 rentable square feet, just over 41,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, and three levels of underground parking.
The building stands prominently on world-renowned Pennsylvania Avenue in the full block between 10th and 11th Streets, N.W., between the White House and the U.S. Capitol Building. This prime location offers tenants and visitors numerous hotels, prominent restaurants, elegant shops, entertainment venues and cultural attractions within close proximity.
The building was developed in 1986/87 and designed by the highly regarded Washington, D.C. firm Hartmann-Cox Architects. The design incorporates the façades of the approximately 100-year-old Victorian-era buildings that occupied the former site. The façade steps back on several levels creating private rooftop terraces with different views of the city including The Capitol and The Washington Monument.
The primary façade consists of granite, brick and limestone. A flat, steel-framed canopy extends over each of the building’s four entryways. A barrel-vaulted ceiling sets a dramatic stage for the focal point of the interior – a central octagonal rotunda that soars eight stories high.
