Carr Properties Breaks Ground on 225,000 SF Office Development in Washington, D.C.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Carr Properties has broken ground on Signal House, a 225,000-square-foot office development in the Union Market neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Located at 350 Morse St., the project will be situated adjacent to Florida Avenue and near the NOMA-Gallaudet Metro Station.
Designed by Gensler, the 10-story office building will pay tribute to the historic industrial surroundings of the area with a terra cotta, metal and glass exterior.
Amenities at the property will include a penthouse with a demonstration kitchen, bar, recording studio, DJ booth, karaoke room and conference center. Other features will include 10,000 square feet of private terraces, fitness facilities, bike storage and 12,500 square feet of retail space.
“Signal House will be the first new office development in Union Market and will add to the revitalization of an area that is becoming one of the most dynamic creative and retail destinations in the city,” says Oliver Carr, CEO of Carr Properties.
Completion of the project is slated for the first quarter of 2021. John Moriarty & Associates is the general contractor. The developers are seeking LEED Gold certification for the property.
Carr Properties is a privately held real estate investment trust that owns, acquires and develops office properties in Washington, D.C. and Boston. In addition to Signal House, the company is developing Wilson and Elm in Bethesda, Md., and One Congress in Boston. Carr currently owns a portfolio of 16 office properties totaling approximately 4.3 million square feet.
