Downtown Detail

Owners of the Woodward & Lothrop building have recently begun detailing the exterior ironwork of the former department building. Encompassing an entire city block, the old flagship "Woodies" store is located  in NW DC bound by 10th, 11th, F and G Sts. 

The spaces inside the building have been redeveloped over the last 10 years, including ground floor retail of clothing stores Forever 21, H&M, Zara and tourist destination Madame Tussauds wax museum. Most recently, these patterned ironwork pillars (wrapped around the lower floors) were painted a uniform forest green color. The new paint job adds another layer to an already gorgeous building. This is a neat and I like it!
