Boutique Building Features White House Views, New Model Law Firm Efficiencies
Washington, D.C., October 9, 2013 -- Premier Washington law firm Miller & Chevalier Chartered announced today that it has signed a lease to move into a new, state of the art building at 900 16th Street, NW. When it makes the move in December 2015, the firm will be the anchor tenant in The JBG Companies and ICG Properties’ new office building designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern, located just two blocks from the White House and the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
"Miller & Chevalier is known as a Washington institution, an elite law firm focused in niche areas. After many years as one of numerous tenants in a very large building, we set out to find space more in keeping with our personality and strategic vision as a select, boutique enterprise. This building -- sophisticated, unique, and in the heart of Washington's business center -- fit our criteria perfectly," said Miller & Chevalier Chair Anthony F. Shelley. "900 16th Street is a trophy building for a trophy firm. The new building also provides us with new design and technology efficiencies to match the current and future needs of our firm."
Miller & Chevalier has leased 84,000 square feet of the new nine story building, including the top six floors and the rooftop terrace overlooking the White House. The building will offer expansive window lines with views of other Washington, DC landmarks and is designed to receive LEED Core and Shell certification.
"Miller & Chevalier considered other buildings within the East End, where they have been a long-term tenant. The location of 900 16th Street near the centers of government in the heart of the nation's capital, the exceptional design and quality of this new building and the opportunity to be the lead tenant proved to be a winning combination that best serves the firm's needs," said Pat Marr, Vice Chairman at CBRE, who represented Miller & Chevalier in the transaction along with Sally Wilson and Jennifer Ralph.
