Skanska‘s 17xM project, an 11-story mixed-use development in Washington, D.C., has topped out.

The 334,000-square-foot building is located at 1700 M St. NW in the city’s downtown area, near the Golden Triangle neighborhood. Situated approximately midway between Dupont Circle and the White House, the project has signed Gibson Dunn & Crutcher as its anchor tenant. The international law firm is slated to occupy 163,750 square feet of office space at 17xM under the terms of a 16-year lease agreed in 2021.

Unique certification

17xM has been designed to qualify for LEED Gold and Fitwel certifications, but the project will also hold the distinction of being the first WiredScore SmartScore-certified office building in North America.

Amenities at the project will include conference facilities, event space, a rooftop deck and a private lower-level terrace, according to a statement issued by Skanska. The building is expected to be completed in 2024. Kohn Pedersen Fox and Arup designed the project. Consultants from both firms, as well as from Siemens, are advising Skanska on amenities and environmental considerations.

Among the developer’s several projects in the Washington, D.C., area are 3901 N Fairfax Drive, a $129 million mixed-use office project in Arlington, Va., as well as OZMA, a 12-story mixed-use development with 275 luxury apartments in the city’s Northeast quadrant, and the Virginia Hospital Center’s Outpatient Pavilion in Arlington.
