Located on 15th Street between L and M Streets, NW, Columbia Center is a 12-story, Class “A”office building with 8’4” ceilings and a 40-foot high, glass lobby with sloping steel support columns. The horizontal and vertically-angled glass curtain wall building totals 415,000 sf of above-grade structure with four levels of below-grade parking totaling 106,000 sf.
To capture additional square footage, the southern end of the building is cantilevered over the adjacent alley, starting from the fourth floor. The building shares air rights over the alley below with the adjacent Washington Post building.
The project was recognized by Maryland/DC NAIOP with its Award of Merit for Best Urban Office over 150,000 sf as well as awards from the DC, Potomac Valley and Northern Virginia AIA chapters.
