Celebrating preservation and expansion in the nation’s capital.
Lincoln Property Company had the privilege of managing all phases of this historic preservation and development effort in Washington D.C. The project called for the meticulous restoration of a historic landmark building and construction of a new office tower.
Located a block from the White House, the National Bank of Washington is prominently situated on one of Washington D.C.’s premier corners, 14th and G Streets, NW, within the East End neighborhood. The 164,000-square-foot project included the historic National Bank of Washington building, combined with a brand new 11-story, 135,000-square-foot trophy office tower and 26,000 square feet of historically preserved retail space. The artful blend of the project’s historic and modern components creates an extraordinary D.C. experience for visitors and tenants.
A majority of the Bank Building, built in the early twentieth century, was historically preserved to celebrate its unique Neoclassical architectural features. These efforts included meticulous preservation of the building’s large circular safe deposit vault in the lower level, the original cash vault on the main banking floor, its beautifully restored polychrome coffered ceiling in the bank lobby, as well as its large arched windows and exterior detailing, main level flooring, and original pendant lighting.
The development’s new office tower boasts three rooftop terraces, and each floor offers access to fresh air from balconies overlooking G Street, NW. The project is equipped with a state-of-the-art fitness facility and features high-quality HVAC systems and touchless entryway systems. It also includes four levels of below-grade parking, providing a ratio of 1/1,500 RSF.
The combined project, including entitlement and approvals by the Historic Preservation Review Board, took approximately four years to complete at a value in excess of $165 million.
