October 10, 2013 - 200 Eye Street SE Honored with Awards from Various Development Organizations

200 Eye Street SE, developed by StonebridgeCarras and financed by Bostonia, has been awarded a number of awards from various industry organizations recognizing the project's creativity, sustainability, and overall model of success. At the end of the 2013 award season, the project has received the following awards: 

  • Washington Business Journal - Best Rehab Award
  • Washington Business Journal - Deal of the Year Award 2012
  • NAIOP National - Award for Sustainable Development of the Year 
  • NAIOP DC/MD - Best Rehab/Reuse Award
  • NAIOP DC/MD - Best Sustainable Project Award
  • CREW Placemaking Award
  • U.S. Green Building Council - LEED Platinum Core & Shell and Commerical Interiors
  • U.S. Green Building Council National Capital Region - Awards of Excellence, LEED Core & Shell

Bostonia provided $85 million in construction to permanent financing for StonebridgeCarras' redevelopment of the 408,000 SF 1950's era Washington Star printing plant into a Class A, LEED Platinum office space. The 100 percent retrofit/manjor renovation, is occupied by the District of Columbia under a 20-year lease and was completed in December 2012. The building now houses some 1,400 employees of three departments — the Child and Family Services Agency, D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Office of the Chief Technology Officer. This successful Public-Private Partnership solved two issues for the District: it transformed an aging and unoccupied newspaper plant into a modern, fully occupied office space and will save approximately $6.5 million savings per year in lease payments for the District of Coulmbia Government. One of the greatest innovations in the building was to turn the loading dock of the existing building into the main entrance of the new building. This allowed StonebridgeCarras to turn the large entryway into a standalone art museum that now houses artwork owned by the District. This switch also provided better access to public transportation and the building now faces the neighborhood of Capital Riverfront/Washington Nationals Ball Park.
