This project is an assemblage of historic row buildings along 7th Street between H & G Streets and opposite from the Verizon Center.  Originally built in the mid to late 1800’s, Douglas Development acquired and later configured all of the buildings into four separate office/retail projects.  This signature project has been a catalyst for the redevelopment of the Chinatown area as a retail and entertainment destination.  In 2004, the project was awarded the Merit Award under the Architecture Historic Resources category by the Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.  Office tenants are largely comprised of governmental agencies and associations.  Retail tenants are mostly restaurants.  The construction financing for the project was provided by Key Bank.
