Shannon Place Office Building

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

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.
