MKDA Renovates Suites at 1300 Eye Street Franklin Square

Avison Young announced today the closing of 140,000 square feet (SF) in lease transactions at 1300 Eye Street NW in Washington, DC over the last 18 months. The 485,000-SF historic building, commonly referred to as Franklin Square, recently underwent a stunning renovation to transform it into an iconic trophy office building. Recognized as retrofit’s 2021 “Metamorphosis of the Year,” Franklin Square’s renovation was led by global investment managers Nuveen Real Estate and Norges Bank Investment Management, co-owners of the building.

MKDA designed multiple prebuilt units at 1300 Eye Street (3ooW and 400W), drawing inspiration from Franklin Square and the neighborhood’s famous landmarks and long standing hospitality institutions.
