200 I Street, SE
This project will redevelop the long vacant Washington Star printing plant at 200 I Street, SE. The property was formerly known as 225 Virginia Avenue, SE.
Previously this large property in the Capitol Riverfront area was redeveloped as a data center, but the property was never occupied. The District originally leased the property for MPD functions but redevelopment costs proved too high to justify under the lease agreement.
In a bold move, the building was purchased by the District in 2009. Stonebridge Carras will redevelop the property through a lease-leaseback transaction, saving District taxpayers more than $60 million over the previous arrangement and providing the District with unencumbered ownership of the facility at the end of the 20 year lease.
Once renovated, the new building will be LEED Gold certified and include a ground floor public gallery to showcase the vast art collection of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Other office tenants will include the Child and Family Services Agency and the Office of the Chief Technology Officer.
