Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announced it has been awarded the leasing assignment for 1200 New Hampshire Avenue, NW in Washington, DC. GreenOak Real Estate (GreenOak) recently acquired the 309,039-square-foot Class-A office building and will begin renovations in mid-2019.
Located at the corner of New Hampshire Avenue and M Street, NW, the eight-story office building features four sides of expansive window lines along with atrium and private balcony opportunities on every floor. Renovations will include a cutting-edge fitness center complete with showers and lockers, bike storage facility, conference center, tenant lounge, new common areas and restrooms, new entrance, lobby upgrades and new street-level glass façade for retail storefronts.
Boasting walk and transit scores of 98 and 93, respectively, 1200 New Hampshire provides commuters with many transportation options. The building is accessible by two wheels or four, or by bus or rail. An immediately accessible WMATA bus stop and Capital Bikeshare docking station are outside the front door, in addition to a tenant-only bike storage facility and ample parking for those driving to work. 1200 New Hampshire’s proximity to I-66, Whitehurst Freeway and Rock Creek Parkway makes for an easy commute. For Metro commuters, the Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom Metro Stations are within three and five blocks, respectively.
“1200 New Hampshire is a phenomenal high-value opportunity with brand new tenant amenities on M Street just a few blocks from luxury hotels and residences, high-end restaurants like Rasika and Nobu, but also fast-casual options not to mention the coolest fitness experiences like Equinox and Squash on Fire,” said NKF’s Owen. “The ability to provide ample parking and a 10-minute walk to four metro lines uniquely positions 1200 as one of the most diversely accessible and highly-amenitized buildings in the city.”
