The development, which replaces the former Washington Post building, gets its signature look with corrugated, pre-patinated copper and glass curtain walls and three crisscrossing skybridges with vertical copper sunshades spanning over the plaza and connecting the two wings. The complex’s public spaces, including glass-clad retail pods along a network of alleys and the plaza with landscaping and water features, integrate the building with the streetscape. Building tenants, the primary one being Fannie Mae, enjoy sweeping downtown views from the rooftop amenity space. SGH consulted on the building enclosure design.
