600 Mass delivers what successful organizations need and want to attract, retain, and support today’s top talent. The building offers a unique environment that is much more than a place for the workday: it is an office designed for the way employees work and live today – and tomorrow. Located a block from CityCenterDC and Gallery Place, 600 Mass is ideally located close to restaurants, retail, entertainment venues, hotels, museums and public transportation. 600 Mass incorporates natural elements that enhance the work environment – a striking water feature, a rooftop garden and world-class landscaping are all part of the premium experience that blends natural elements with a modern LEED® Platinum workplace. Tenants enjoy 24/7 access to state-of- the-art amenities – a spa-quality fitness center, executive bike storage, a 120-person conference facility, and grand views from the fully-serviced rooftop garden – as well as on-site dining options: Farmers & Distillers and Karma Modern Indian with Chaia Farm-to-Taco opening this fall. 600 Mass – tomorrow’s workplace, today.

  • Special Cocktail Networking Reception

Greater Washington State of Office

Taking a read on D.C.'s investment sales climate, the city's market appears to be red hot. From continued foreign interest, to out-of-area domestic investors, the market appears to be booming.

Contrarily, leasing activity continues to slow, and vacancy rates continue to hover around 12%. Amidst the dichotomy of increased investment activity, and high vacancy rates, we are still building.  The District alone has over 7.6M SF under construction!

So... is D.C.'s office market HOT or NOT? Join us as we take a look at all angles, analyze D.C.'s strengths and weaknesses, and strategize how to maximize our investments in the nation's capital.

We'll discuss the following topics and many more!

1. How can D.C. stimulate enough demand to meet the massive amount of supply in the market?

2. Is D.C. tech growing quickly enough to fill rising office vacancies?

3. How long will outside investors continue to heat up the region's investment climate?

4. How are rising construction costs and labor shortage impacting your investments?

5. In a tenant's market, what design trends and amenities should you prioritize?

Don't forget to add your insight to the conversation on Twitter with hashtag #GreaterWashingtonOfficeSummit and don't forget to follow @BisnowDC @BisnowDC!
