Pembroke Announces 22,916 Sq. Ft. Lease at Recently Completed Property
Pembroke, an international real estate developer and advisor, today announced the signing of The Wilderness Society at 1801 Pennsylvania Avenue. The 22,916 sq. ft. lease will encompass the second and third floors of the newly renovated 13-story office building, located adjacent to Farragut West Metro Station. The organization will re-locate from its current offices at 1615 M Street NW in June 2021.
Across its global portfolio, Pembroke has invested in repositioning assets; a core practice that attracted The Wilderness Society to the building. At 1801 Penn, the repositioning included a dual-height entry opening into a renovated and reconfigured lobby, new amenity areas, floor-to-ceiling glazing and enlarged corner office windows along Pennsylvania Avenue that increase natural light. The Wilderness Society’s new space will overlook Edward R. Murrow Park. The park is part of a neighborhood improvement initiative, in partnership with Pembroke, to promote a safe and vibrant outdoor space to give back to the community. Pembroke has also renovated the systems at 1801 Penn ahead of the end of their useful life to improve performance, sustainability, and eliminate harmful chemicals.
“We are thrilled to welcome The Wilderness Society to 1801 Penn,” said Cory Saunders, VP/Head of Washington Office at Pembroke. “It is an honor to partner with such a remarkable organization in providing TWS with a long-term headquarters solution.”
Located a block from the Farragut West metro station on the blue, orange and silver lines and across from Edward R. Murrow Park, The World Bank and the IMF, 1801 Penn is a 13-story 197,000 sq ft building that has recently undergone a rooftop to lower level renovation, delivering an elevated, boutique environment with market-leading amenities and infrastructure to meet the demands of today’s workforce. A hospitality-inspired lobby with social lounge and coffee bar is available all-day to tenants and guests.
A distinctive open-air cupola and one of the tallest rooftops in the District make 1801 Penn ideal for meetings, social events, fitness and client hosting with views of the Washington Monument, Regan National Airport and the Jefferson Memorial. The 5,000 sq ft fitness center features Peloton bikes, TRX training equipment, Wellbeats on-demand classes, Yoga and HIIT studio spaces, energy “nap” pods, and locker rooms. Base building infrastructure includes redundant major building systems, above-average power availability, and destination dispatch elevator controls.
152,000 sq ft of first-class office space is available at the completed 1801 Penn. Visit 1801penn.com for more details about this unique Pennsylvania Avenue opportunity. Pembroke recently completed another repositioning at 1201 New York Ave, a 444,000 sq ft Class A office building, which like 1801 Penn, has been enhanced with new curated amenities and thoughtful community-driven experiences.
Leasing services for Pembroke were provided by Michael Katcher, Mark Wooters, John Skolnik and Kyle McFadden of Cushman & Wakefield. MGA brokers Michael Goldman and Kamis O’Farrell represented the Wilderness Society in the negotiation.
