Where Can I Find Office Space in Northeast Along the H Street Corridor?
Flush with trendy bars, restaurants and a long-awaited streetcar system, the H Street NE Corridor has long been one of DC’s hottest neighborhoods. No longer just a promising, up-and-coming neighborhood, the portion of H Street east of Union Station has seen a spike in residents over the last decade. While the neighborhood’s popularity is firmly cemented, there has been one glaring absence in the area until now – office space.
Apart from several small loft units, there are only two real buildings with modern office space – 609 H Street NE and 501 H Street NE. Both of these buildings are capping off major renovations and are primed for private office users.
609 H Street NE
Directly across from Whole Foods and next door to the residential tower, Anthology, 609 H Street is an 88,000 SF building that was formerly home to the DC Government from 1988 to 2017. After the Government vacated last year, Jair Lynch kicked off a full building renovation to include a new streetscape, lobby, elevator cabs, restrooms, and rooftop terrace.
The 5-story building has floor plates of roughly 15,750 SF, each with an impressive window line. The main attraction to the building is the indoor-outdoor rooftop terrace that will feature a 10’ interior event space leading out to the spacious outdoor roof deck.
Out of the 88,000 square feet, only about 25,000 SF is left available for lease, which includes the entire 5th floor, a proposed 5,341 SF pre-built spec suite on the 2nd floor and a 4,000 SF new penthouse addition with a private terrace.
501 H Street NE
501 H Street NE is a brand-new, mixed used building that was just constructed earlier this year at the corner of 5th & H Street NE. True to its ‘work-live-play’ concept, the 1st floor is retail, the 2nd floor is office and floors 3-6 contains 28 LEED Gold apartment units.
The 2nd floor office portion totals 9,498 SF and will be divided into four pre-built spec suites ranging from 2,200 – 2,500 SF. The loft-style suites will have 16’+ ceiling heights, and will be mostly open work areas with a few private offices, meeting rooms and pantries. The efficient suites contain only one structural column each, and receive tons of natural light through the large bay windows. While there are no amenities in the building itself, there are a plethora of dining, fitness and entertainment options all within walking distance.
