WASHINGTON, Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A number of corporate executives and District officials gathered at 1101 Sixteenth Street to celebrate its start of construction. Akridge and Stars Investments are partnering to redevelop 1101 and 1111 Sixteenth Street, which will be financed by EagleBank. 1101 and 1111 Sixteenth Street previously served as the site of the American Association of University Women and the American Beverage Association. Akridge and Stars will transform the two brutalist buildings into a freestanding, 100,000-square-foot, trophy office building that will deliver in Fall 2018.
Designed by world-renowned architects HOK, 1101 Sixteenth strikes the perfect balance between contemporary and classic design. The sophisticated building stays true to the historic nature of Sixteenth Street, while featuring desirable window lines on all four sides, efficient floor plates, and a full host of modern amenities, including a fitness facility, penthouse lounge, and rooftop terrace with White House views.
"1101 Sixteenth Street will be an impressive and efficient building," said Matt Klein, President of Akridge. "The project's boutique size will give small- and medium-sized Clients a prominent identity on one of DC's most powerful streets."

Situated on the corner of Sixteenth and L Streets, only blocks from the White House, 1101 Sixteenth presents a rare opportunity for organizations to amplify their legacy on one of the world's most prominent streets.
