CityCenter DC - the mega development in the heart of downtown - is at last celebrating an executed lease for office space at the two office buildings on 11th Street. Law firm giant Covington and Burling officially announced this week they will occupy 420,000 s.f. in the office buildings when they move in the summer of 2014, accounting for 80% of the office space. Developers Archstone and Hines and Qatari financial backer Barwa Bank.
The 10-acre project will feature two condominiums, two apartment buildings, and the two office buildings, as well as 295,000 s.f. of retail that developers are hoping will create a new fashion center downtown. Developers hope to turn over the retail space to tenants in late 2013, with retailers beginning to open in early 2014. In their excitement at the office lease, Hines released a new rendering of the office building at 10th & H Streets.
