Rare Full Building Opportunity Unlike Anything Else On the Market In the East End


If you are looking for 10,000 SF of unique space in the East End, here it is.

After touring just about every block of vacant ‘creative’ space east of Metro Center in the 10,000 SF size range, the 3 floors available above District Chophouse at 509 7th Street, NW has the potential to be something special.

Owned by Douglas Development, 509 7th Street was originally built in the 1950’s and has been home to the holding company, Venturehouse Group, that creates, builds and invests in technology companies for the past several years.

The entire office portion of the building totals 9,426 SF, comprising floors 2, 3 and 4.  With its 12’+ exposed ceilings, hardwood floors and brick walls the space has a boutique/industrial feel not often seen n DC.

The space can fit 80-90 people in an open plan, which is highly efficient considering the each floor is only about 3,500 SF.  There are many features of the space that can be salvaged by a new tenant, including a handful of floor-to-ceiling glass offices and conference rooms, which allow for the light to flow freely through the space.

With an asking rent of $55.00/SF, the rates are competitive for the East End market. To tour this space, or others like it, please give us a shout!
