The Historic Weschler Galleries Building Transforming Into Warehouse Offices


Last year, Weschler’s Auctioneers & Appraisers relocated its historic operation to the suburbs after 127 years in the District. The iconic building at 909 E Street NW, which was originally built in 1910, was sold to Washington’s most revered developers of historic properties, Douglas Development Corporation in May 2017.

Located directly across from the FBI Building on E Street, the 5-story industrial-style building is in the process of being renovated to restore its historic elements, while adding new features to the building such as modernized elevators, mechanical systems, and restrooms. The restoration will bring to life many of the building’s original qualities such as its hardwood floors, original brick and oversized windows.

A sixth floor penthouse is also being added to the building that will have a private roof deck exclusive to that floor.

Each floor is approximately 6,200 square feet – with exception to the penthouse which is slightly smaller to accommodate the roof deck – and features dramatic ceiling heights of at least 11 feet. The fifth floor has the highest ceilings, measuring 15 feet, which is almost double that of a typical office building.

To put the ceiling heights into perspective, the average DC building has finished ceiling heights of around 8’4’’ – 8’6’’, with new trophy constructing going as high as 9’. There is nothing in the Penn Quarter, or DC proper for that matter, with a more authentic loft/warehouse feel than this.

Construction will be complete in the summer 2018, but activity is already swirling. A lease has been signed on the 2nd floor, and other tenants are showing elevated interest as the restoration continues to progress.

Though there is no parking in the building, there are three metro stops – Metro Center, Gallery Place/Chinatown and Archives-Navy Memorial – all within a three block radius.
