WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hudson Institute marked the opening of its new headquarters at 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Suite 400, in Washington D.C., providing a significant expansion and new conference facilities for the growing organization.
The custom-designed offices represent a major expansion of Hudson's facilities and outreach capabilities. Located on Pennsylvania Avenue in the Heurich Building, the new offices are within close proximity to the White House, the U.S. Congress, and the National Mall.
"Our move reflects Hudson's continued success," said Kenneth Weinstein, Hudson Institute's president and CEO. "Hudson has always distinguished itself with unconventional thinking and pragmatic solutions, which are in high demand with policymakers today. Our new headquarters are the linchpin in our ambitious growth strategy and an invaluable tool to expand our public profile and audience. At our new Pennsylvania Avenue address, we're looking forward to even closer relationships with our neighbors at both ends of the street."
Designed by FOX Architects, the new LEED-certified offices incorporate contemporary, glass-focused interior design with panoramic street views of the Old Post Office building and Pennsylvania Avenue. A spacious 135-seat conference center features fully integrated broadcasting equipment and 2,000 square feet of configurable event space for receptions and public events. The new headquarters are two-thirds larger than the former location, and host multi-functional collaboration areas, offices, and a suite of conference rooms.
Hudson Institute was originally founded in 1961 under the leadership of nuclear strategist and futurist Herman Kahn in Croton-Upon-Hudson, New York. The relocation to 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue marks the fourth move in Hudson's 55-year history.
An open house reception will be held at a future date to be determined. All mail should now be directed to Hudson Institute, 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue, Suite 400, Washington, D.C. 20004.
