Success! You're on the list.

You know you’ve got a strong office market when landlords start deciding to knock down old buildings and rebuild them anew. It happened when MRP decided to start over at 900 G Street NW, rather than just re-skinning it with glass. And today, Bisnow reports that it’s happening again with 2001 M Street, a dowdy edifice built in 1987 that will be destroyed to make way for a modern, glassy replacement.

It’s not the most sustainable solution—-we’re fans of the classy retrofit here at Housing Complex—-but hey, trophy office space is where it’s at these days.
