10th and G Project Rises

The 165,000 sq foot, $85million Skanska development at 10th and G Sts NW is progressing, even during the tough winter weather. 

Three years in the making (so far), the site was previously occupied by the First Congregational United Church of Christ. The church cut a deal to redevelop the site with PN Hoffman. Skanska stepped in to lead the project after real estate markets faltered. 

The church will return to the first and second floors inside the new building as part of the deal. The other spaces will include retail (4,000 sq ft) on part of the first floor and office space on the 3rd-10th floors. Skanska is building for a LEED Gold certification.

Other notable features:
5,000 sq rooftop penthouse terrace and green roof (tenants only)
3,000 sq fitness center (unsure if accessible to the public)
4 levels of underground parking, including bike storage
Proposal for onsite Zipcar spaces
