Events Raw Space

1101 New York Avenue

1101 New York is unquestionably one of the finest trophy office buildings in all of downtown Washington. Designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Kevin Roche, the freestanding 375,000 square foot, 12-story building has a commanding presence and sets the highest standards for quality. The triple-glazed, signature-glass curtain wall goes above and beyond typical building standards and minimizes energy consumption to achieve LEED® Gold certification. The floor-to-ceiling glass and absence of perimeter columns result in 180-degree, uninterrupted panoramic views of the DC skyline from every floor – each of which can accommodate up to an incomparable 10 corner offices. Tenants enjoy 24/7 access to state-of-the-art amenities – a new spa-quality fitness center, secure bike storage, and unparalleled views of the US Capitol Building and Washington Monument from the indoor/outdoor “green” rooftop garden. With deep setbacks encompassing an entire block along New York Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets, the property is situated diagonally adjacent to CityCenterDC, the District’s premier mixed-use project including abundant luxury retail, restaurants, apartments, and condominiums. 

 

Rounding out the property’s first-class offering is the experienced, institutional sponsorship in Oxford Properties Group and Norges Bank Investment Management.  As the real estate investment arm of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System (OMERS), Oxford Properties Group was established in 1960, and is a global real estate owner, investor, developer, and property manager with a diverse portfolio of office, retail, industrial, multifamily, and hospitality assets. Norges Bank Investment Management manages the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global and manages 1 trillion dollars of assets in equities, real estate and bonds. The unlisted real estate assets are invested mainly in 11 global cities in the US, Europe and Asia, including Washington, DC.

Event Summary

In December, D.C.'s City Council voted in favor of the DC Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018, which establishes a 100% renewable energy target by 2032, with a 10% solar energy carve-out by 2041. Not only will these efforts keep the District along a green path, but it will also provide 15,000 jobs, according to Solar Power World.

While D.C. has made a concerted effort to convert to solar energy, how can its major developers also get involved in going green?

Join Bisnow for our first ever Greater DC Solar and Sustainability event, as today's top developers, thinkers, and policy-makers come together to break down

why

developers should invest in solar, as well as the various ways solar can make a difference to our local community. It's a Bisnow event you don't want to miss!
