This one-of-a-kind signature Douglas Development and Brookfield Properties project is an assembly of 19 historic buildings on a triangle shaped block between New York Avenue, 7th and L Streets in the city’s Mt. Vernon Square adjacent to the Washington Convention Center. The completed mega-complex features trophy office space and prime retail, helping to continue the renaissance of this neighborhood.
