200 I Street SE

200 I Street, SE

Project Overview

This project was redevelopment the long vacant Washington Star printing plant at 200 I Street, SE, formerly known as 225 Virginia Avenue, SE, as tenant space for various District agencies.

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 redeveloped 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 a 20-year lease.

The new building is double LEED Platinum certified (Core Building and Interiors) and includes a ground floor public gallery showcasing the vast art collection of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Today, 200 I Street tenants include: the Child and Family Services Agency, the Office of the Chief Technology Officer, the Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and the Office of Motion Picture and Television Development.
