JBG Begins Construction on Capitol Hill Office Building

JBG has begun construction on its newest office project at 300 New Jersey Ave., NW, located across from the U.S. Capitol and bordered by New Jersey Avenue, First and D Streets. 300 New Jersey Avenue will be a 10-story, 255,000 s.f. office building adjacent to JBG’s 51 Louisiana Avenue, a 5-story office building built in 1935. The two buildings will be connected by a glass and steel 9-story atrium capped with a trapezoidal skylight and interconnected by platforms and bridges that will resolve the differing building heights. The project will offer 9 foot ceilings and floor to ceiling glass along the perimeter walls with Capitol views when finished in 2009. Designed by London-based Richard Rogers Partnership (RRP), its third in the United States. In late 2005, Richard Rogers Partnership was selected to develop 3 World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan.

In March of 2006, JBG leased approximately 150,000 s.f. of the building to Jones Day, one of the world’s largest law firms and currently occupies the adjacent building. Clark Construction Group of Bethesda, Maryland, has been selected as the project’s general contractor. Dallas, Texas based HKS is the architect of record.

JBG is very active in the greater DC market with condominiums, apartments and office buildings, nearing completion on its Waterview project in Rosslyn with 160 hotel rooms, 620,000 s.f. of office space and 136 luxury condos, as well as its Marriott Wardman project, and just beginning its project to renovate and convert the 1300-room hotel in Woodley Park into condos and apartments.
