Shannon Place Office Building

For this project, Forrester Construction renovated what is now known as the Shannon Place Office Building.  The existing concrete framed warehouse was transformed to a Class A office building.  Located in Southeast Washington, DC, the Shannon Place Office Building renovation project is the first step in a long-term plan to transform downtown Anacostia.

The existing building was wrapped in brick masonry with four main floors and a penthouse level. The project required substantial structural rehabilitation, as over time and through exposure to the elements, many of the exterior perimeter columns experienced significant deterioration. The building’s interior was rebuilt with a new curtainwall system on the east, north and west façades, an extra floor was added and new elevators were installed. A two-story lobby, a fitness center with locker rooms, new restrooms, mechanical and electrical systems and tenant spaces were also added.
