The redevelopment of 300 7th Street Southwest consolidated the transit authority’s 10 buildings across D.C., Maryland and Virginia. WMATA selected the team’s high-energy performance design because of its thoughful approach to achieving the organization’s workplace
goals. The design connects the building to
the surrounding neighborhood through architectural elements and to the public through ground floor activation opportunities. The concept focuces on WMATA’s goals to enhance the workplace experience and provide variety and choice for its employees.
The project had a strong focus on maximizing local participation of small, minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned and disadvantaged business enterprises.
