1155 F Street, NW has one of my favorite lobbies in the city. It is the perfect blend between modern and rustic, with a towering 7-story glass atrium connecting the exposed brick façade of the historic building with the contemporary stone and glass finishes of the building’s addition completed in 2009.
Admittedly, 1155 F Street is not a building you’d necessarily associate with progressive tech companies as it is home to several high-end law firms and government relations offices. However, the 8,620 SF suite formerly occupied by Facebook – and later, FiscalNote – is situated in the perfect nook on the 4th floor, encompassing both the newer and historic portions of the building, which contribute to its unconventional design.
The suite entrance is directly off the 4th floor elevator lobby on the eastern portion of the building. As you make your way through the space, the grade level changes as you enter the historic section, adding character and depth to the space. The suite naturally breaks into three major sections, each with large open rooms to house teams of employees.
With monster 12’+ ceilings, iron caged conference rooms, and exposed brick throughout, it has the bones to be a really cool space. Some of the walls are a bit over-the-top with the distressed look, like a new pair of trendy jeans manicured perfectly with rips and tears, but it’s nothing that can’t be easily fixed or toned down. There is also an abundance of glass and natural light, as the space wraps around the interior atrium and overlooks 11th Street.
Directly across from Metro Center, and just 2 blocks west of bustling Chinatown, 1155 F Street is certainly worth checking out if you are looking for out-of-the-box space in a great neighborhood. For more information, or for other options like this, please CLICK HERE.
