Minnesota-Benning Government Center Project

Minnesota-Benning Government Center

The new Department of Employment Services (DOES) headquarters is now open for business. 

Located at 4058 Minnesota Avenue, NE, this brand new five-story government facility includes:

  • 229,000 square feet of office space housing 450 government employees;
  • A one-stop DC Works! Career Center for District job-seekers;
  • 6,500 square feet of retail space for local businesses; and
  • A large community meeting room.

The building's close proximity to the adjacent Minnesota Avenue Metro station will promote more public transit ridership to the area and the new mixed-use amenities neighboring the building will be attractive to DOES employees and customers.

The building is tracking LEED Gold certification and includes a 24,000 square feet green roof, the largest District-owned green roof in the city.

Please reference the Frequently Asked Questions document attached below for more information and photos of the facility.
