Douglas Development plans to start work later this year on a 94,000-square-foot landmark office property at the corner of 10th and F streets. Although the developer did not disclose the cost of the project, it announced that delivery is expected in the summer of 2016.
1000 F St., N.W., will be a boutique, trophy-quality, 11-story office and retail building. It will be constructed according to designs by Shalom Baranes Associates, with the two primary street facades clad in high-performance curtain walls of terracotta and metal panels, with extensive portions of vision glazing accented by horizontal metal sunscreens. The new office building will also incorporate the existing two-story historic structure at the corner of 10th and F streets. The smaller building’s facades will also be restored and its interior fully renovated.
1000 F Street is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification. Once finished, it will offer 10 levels of office space, ground-floor retail and two levels of below-grade parking. Other amenities include multiple outdoor terraces and green rooftops.
“1000 F St. is the last existing underdeveloped site at the corner of 10th and F streets, in D.C.’s East End. At this ideal location, 1000 F offers potential tenants a one-of-a-kind opportunity to occupy a newly constructed, boutique and uniquely historic office experience. CBRE is delighted to be associated with Douglas Development and enthusiastic about leasing such a signature development,” Randy Harrell, executive vice president of CBRE, said in a statement for the press.
According to CBRE, all the retail tenants have now vacated. This means Douglas Development will soon start the demolition of the existing retail structures at the site to make way for the trophy addition to the existing historic structure. The company has transformed numerous trophy and Class A buildings throughout Washington, D.C. Projects include The Woodies Building, The Atlantic Building and 1155 F St. On Sept. 9, Douglas Development paid $8.4 million for the 90,000-square-foot, two-level home of Pete Pappas and Sons, at 1401 Okie St., N.E. This new building will be integrated into the mixed-use redevelopment of the Hechts project.
