Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., Midtown Center is a 14-story mixed-use office, dining, and retail complex arranged around a large new public plaza. The unique glass-and copper facade, three bridges crossing between the two wings of the complex, and the smaller gathering spaces linked by public pathways cutting through the site at the ground plane all contribute to conditions that will foster dynamic public spaces—a critical addition to the larger network of open spaces that defines the city’s increasingly lively downtown.
