Leasing has commenced for 1000 Maine, an office building currently under construction at The Wharf, the development team announced today in a press release. From the looks of it, Hoffman-Madison Waterfront is looking to land a high-profile anchor tenant. From the press release:
"1000 Maine offers both extraordinary creative office space and the opportunity for classic customized space within a top-tier trophy building with dramatic floor plates," said Amer Hammour, chairman of Madison Marquette. "1000 Maine's setting overlooking the Potomac River - in the heart of the nation's Capital - and with a full complement of outstanding amenities, creates a new benchmark in excellence for office design created to appeal to the most discerning national and global office tenants."
1000 Maine will be a 250,000 SF trophy office building, designed by Kohn Pederson Fox and Fox Architects for LEED-Gold certification, with ground floor retail, a multi-story atrium, and panoramic views of the Washington Channel and monumental Washington. The office building is scheduled to deliver in 2017. Below is a promotional video from the building’s website.
In other Wharf news, according to the Washington Business Journal, building permits have been obtained for components of Phase I in recent weeks, including Parcel 2 and Parcel 3a. Parcel 2 will contain Wharf Hall and two apartment buildings, as well as a co-generation plant. Parcel 3a is 800 Maine Avenue, an office building that will be the future home of the American Psychiatric Association. Meanwhile, construction is underway at Waterfront Park, located behind 525 Water Street condos and the new St. Augustine’s Church, which should deliver in 2016.
