Here is a list of notable events that occurred in 1929:
– The crash of Wall Street that lead to the Great Depression
– The very first Academy Awards takes place
– Al Capone organizes the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre
– Vatican City gains independence from Italy
– The soft drink 7-Up is invented (over 30 years before Sprite!)
As far as technology advancements in 1929, the most prominent achievement was most likely either the first car radio by Motorola or the first phone booth in London.
Needless to say, not the most exciting year for tech!!
So, why would a building built in 1929 – nearly 90 years ago – be a consideration for a tech user looking for creative space? Well, you have to see it to find out…
Owned by Douglas Development, one of the largest landlords of tech-inspired real estate in the city, 729 15th Street has been stripped down to its roots to expose the original brick, polished concrete floors and old school terracotta finishes that has become coveted by creative users in recent years.
Each floor comprises 3,000 SF, so it is a unique opportunity for a small tenant to control an entire floor. The top floor of the building – the 8th floor – recently came available for lease and is a tremendous canvas for a tenant to make a loud splash in terms of branding and culture.
Despite being a mid-block building, there is plenty of natural light that flows throughout the space. At full capacity, there is room for 20-25 work desks in addition to the 2 glass offices, 2 glass meeting rooms and open pantry.
Located along 15th Street between G and H, it is in a prime location just up the street from the W Hotel, Old Ebbitt Grill and within a stone’s throw of the White House.
