Look where the past year has taken Eliot Spitzer.

Roughly 12 months ago, Spitzer was embroiled in a scandal after meeting up with a high-class hooker at the Mayflower Hotel. This year, his political career a smoldering heap behind him, he’s now the proud new owner of an office building just around the corner!

Today, Spitzer is in business with his real estate investor/developer father, Bernard. The two purchased their new downtown spot—-1615 L St. NW—-for $180 million. Walk west a block and a half, turn north, and there’s the Mayflower Hotel at 1127 Connecticut Avenue.
