Description

WDG provided the complete redesign of 1919 M Street to reposition it as a Class-A commercial project. The renovation, which retained only the original concrete structural shell, was awarded the NAIOP Award of Excellence in the high rise category.

The exterior skin features Cold Spring granite piers in filled with aluminum composite panels and glass and metal curtain wall elements. The assembly is capped with a boldly projecting aluminum cornice and four spires atop the M Street façade. A continuous glass and metal canopy expands the existing M Street retail arcade and underscores the lobby entrance.

The two–story symmetrical building lobby, which features wood and granite at the elevator core, is highlighted by a custom designed luminous wall system composed of hand painted acrylic panels set within ornate stainless steel grillwork.
