1701 Rhode Island Avenue

Located within the Central Business District and DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, 1701 Rhode Island Avenue featured the adaptive reuse/conversion of a former YMCA recreational facility into a 100,000 sf, seven-story ‘Class A’ office building. The renovated building provides clients with easy access to nearby restaurants, retailers, and public transportation.

The building features four sides of floor-to-ceiling glass, 15,450 sf floor plates, and 8’9” or higher finished ceiling heights. Building amenities include a two-story lobby, fitness center, landscaped rooftop terrace, and conference facilities. The existing basement and pool deck levels were converted into two levels of below grade parking. The building achieved a LEED Platinum certification.
