801 17th Street is one of the finest office buildings ever built in Washington, DC. Situated at one of downtown’s most premier intersections, one block from Lafayette Square and the White House, the building offers an incomparable combination of presence and visibility. Rounding out the offering is a floor-to-ceiling glass façade and absence of perimeter columns that introduce natural light and air while providing uninterrupted panoramic views of the DC skyline. The project continues to reflect the perfect confluence of design quality and sustainability.
INDUSTRY LEADING DESIGN
Designed by internationally-acclaimed Pritzker Prizewinning architect Kevin Roche, Lafayette Tower has a commanding presence only one block from the White House and as the first office building in Washington, DC to achieve LEED C+S Platinum certification, 801 17th Street sets the highest standards for exterior and interior quality.
CENTER OF EVERYTHING
Lafayette Tower is situated on a prominent corner in the heart of downtown Washington, DC. Located only one block from the White House and steps from the Farragut West and Farragut North Metro Stations, providing access to the Red, Orange, Blue and Silver Lines, the location provides the most convenient access to a wide array of dining options, convenience amenities and commuting routes.
The design team prioritized superior daylighting and access to views of the White House and Lafayette Park with its exceptional ceiling heights, expansive column bays and floor-to-ceiling, ultra-clear glass curtain-wall system. In addition, the unique articulation of the floorplate and exterior building envelope creates multiple corner offices allowing each tenant to have a special office experience.
