WASHINGTON, May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Carr Workplaces, the nation's leading provider of premier workspace solutions, announced today the grand opening of its newest business center located just steps from the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. Located at 300 New Jersey Ave., Carr Workplaces will occupy the entire ninth floor of the landmark building encompassing 26,132 square feet with 85 offices, three conference rooms, a video conferencing studio and an inviting community cafe featuring complimentary Starbucks coffee. Carr Workplaces' Capitol Hill location will open in July 2011.
"We are delighted to expand our presence in Washington D.C. and bring our flexible office solutions to professionals working on Capitol Hill," said Joe Wallace, CEO of Carr Workplaces. "The vibrant business and political communities active on Capitol Hill will benefit by having a truly flexible, Class-A workplace solution available nearby, one that gives them a great place to work and meet, while avoiding the cost and distraction required to provision their own work environments."
"In a town that changes shape every two, four and six years, no one needs flexibility more than the professionals working on Capitol Hill," he added. "Carr delivers that flexibility along with a premier office or meeting room located at the doorstep of the U.S. Capitol."
Carr Workplaces' newest location at 300 New Jersey Ave. is convenient to both Capitol Hill and Union Station, and is serviced by Metrorail, metro hotels, restaurants and shops. At the time of its completion in 2009, the building was only the 3rd LEED Gold Certified structure in the D.C. metropolitan area. Designed by world-renowned architect Richard Rogers, 300 New Jersey Avenue features floor-to-ceiling windows, an exclusive rooftop terrace with unparalleled Capitol views, and interior wall-to-wall glass revealing a soaring 10-story atrium.
The Capitol Hill Center marks Carr Workplaces' 13th location in the Washington, D.C. area and the 29th nationally for the rapidly expanding premier workplace provider.
Carr Workplaces integrates Class-A office space, workrooms, technology, meeting space and support services, creating turnkey work environments available by the hour, week, month or year.
