Midtown Center is situated in the heart of Washington DC, at the corner of L Street Northwest and 15 Street Northwest. The building was constructed on the site of The Washington Post's former home, which was razed in 2016.
Encompassing 865,000 square feet, the new building serves as the headquarters for mortgage company Fannie Mae. Designed by New York-based SHoP Architects, the 14-storey U-shaped building is organized around an expansive ground-level plaza.
Stretching high above the plaza are three bridges, which act as "sculptural elements that animate the courtyard below".
The building's facades are sheathed in glass, enabling natural light to penetrate the interior workspaces. Copper accents on the exterior, which will develop a patina over time, are meant to pay heed to local design traditions.”
During the planned tour, Georgetown Village guests will see multiple interior spaces, walk across the interior and exterior bridges, visit the roof deck, and experience the state-of-the-art video conference rooms. To sign up please contact the GV office at 202-999-8988.
