Turn-Key Space at 1424 K Street Has All the Creative Elements a Tenant Could Want


FACT #1: 1424 K Street was built in 1905 as the personal home of then-Vermont Senator, Redfield Proctor, and later converted to an office building and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994

FACT #2: Local developer, Douglas Development purchased the building in May 2000 and performed renovations to the facade, lobby, common areas, and HVAC in 2008

FACT #3: 1424 K Street is the first building I ever did a deal in back in 2007

FACT #4: A really awesome space just became available on the 3rd floor that is a must-see for 5,000 SF tenants


1424 K Street is your quintessential boutique building. Located on the south side of K Street between 14th and 15th Streets, it stands as a symbol of the City Beautiful movement that flourished in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  Now, 100+ years later, the historic elements of the classic building have been fused with modern design to create a unique workplace for the next lucky creative user.

At just over 40,000 SF, the building comprises 7 floors measuring just under 5,800 SF each. The 3rd floor, originally designed by Wingate Hughes for a creative media agency, has just hit the market and features all of the bells and whistles a tenant could want.

From the moment you walk into the space, it is evident that every square inch of the suite was thoughtfully designed.  It feels much larger than 5,800 square feet and can easily accommodate 40 work desks, a handful or private offices, and several collaborative areas. At full capacity, the employee to square footage ratio is well below 1:150, which is incredibly efficient for today’s standards.


A ton of the original brick is featured throughout the space, with strategically placed glass huddle rooms scattered throughout the suite for private meetings.  Toward the back of the suite, which is primarily used for entertaining and lounging, a kitchen with a fully stocked bar is conveniently located next to the family room-style couch and entertainment system.  And if you are really clever, you will notice the concealed sliding barn door leading to a hidden conference room tucked away in the southwest portion of the floor.

It should also be noted that the 2nd and 5th floors are available for lease as well, and can be designed to include the same finishes and configuration as the 3rd floor.  There is no parking in the building, but it is located one block from McPherson Square Metro.

With rents under $50.00/SF, I would certainly recommend including 1424 K Street on your next tour. To make that happen, please fill out our questionnaire or email us directly!
