Project Info

Size: 186,871 sq ft

Akridge is commited to providing high quality, socially responsible, and eco-friendly office spaces in metro DC and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. 2100 L Street NW is a 186,871 GSF, 10-story office tower located on the corner of 21st Street NW and K Street NW in Washington, DC, previously the site of the Humane Society of the United States headquarters. Constructed in collaboration with rehabilitation of the adjacent Stevens School, named for Congressman and noted abolitionist Thaddeus Stevens, the building boasts a host of amenities including landscaped rooftop terrace, penthouse lounge with adjacent conference center and catering kitchen, and a spa-quality fitness facility. Core building space provides ground floor retail shells and office lobby with private and open office spaces throughout the upper floors designed to accommodate over 650 employees. In keeping with the site’s humanitarian history and the ethos of the adjacent school, the site features a pocket park connecting the school and office buildings that features a statue of Stevens and an art gallery celebrating African American artists. These commitments naturally coalesced in the project’s achievement of LEED Core & Shell Platinum, exemplifying Akridge’s commitment to the triple bottom line of economic prosperity, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship.
