Something Old…Something New…Something Borrowed, and Some Bamboo?


975 F Street, otherwise known as Carroll Square, naturally captures so much of what we classify as techy chic on both the interior, as well as the exterior of the building.

Developed and managed by Akridge, Carroll Square incorporates four renovated late 19th century commercial townhouses into the façade of the building, adding depth and character to the overall design. As you walk through the marbled lobby, you are able to look through the two level rear atrium up into the artful stain glass windows of St. Patrick’s Church. Just past the main elevator bank there is a cute little art gallery that displays beautiful work from DC artists, which is rotated every few months. The building also offers a fitness center and rooftop terrace exclusively available to its tenants.

The mix of old and new follows you upstairs to the third floor where Akridge is marketing a 6,000 SF suite that would lend itself well to a variety of industry-types that want to capture the historic feel coupled with distinct modern accents. With nine offices and room for workstations, the space somehow exudes a zen-like vibe, buffering you from the hustle and bustle just outside along the busy F Street.

The suite’s glass doors give you a preview of the light colored wood flooring which then draws your eye to bamboo adorned glass walls. Follow this forest of bamboo glass down a hallway lined with bright and airy windowed offices and you suddenly step down into the loft portion of the suite.

The previous tenant who lived in this space was sure to add texture wherever possible. From the leaf-patterned glass film to the bamboo textured walls, all the way to sun-colored exposed brick, your mood is likely to lift as soon as you step foot inside.

Just one block from Gallery Place and two blocks from Metro Center, Carroll Square could not be better located. The suite comes at a cost, but if you are looking for a polished suite with mostly private offices in a Class A building, then this should be on your radar.
