This project involved new construction above the Hecht's Department Store, which remained occupied throughout construction.  The Hecht's store is located on G Street between 12th and 13th Streets and occupies an entire block in downtown Washington, DC.  DC's main metro hub, Metro Center, is located below Hecht's and access could not be interrupted.  

The project included 6 levels of office space above and adjacent to the department store with two 12-story entrance towers, atrium connector, 4 main lobbies; there was also an addition of a 140-space parking garage and loading dock.  The mechanical system was protected during construction and integration was phased upon topping off. 

One Metro Center is LEED® EB v2009 Gold certified.
