Douglas Development retained STUDIOS to create a new vision for 111 Mass Ave, NW, a prominent office structure commonly referred to as the “Darth Vader Building.” The building is enviably situated along the Mass Avenue corridor with visibility on all four sides and grand views of the Capitol. The project includes a complete renovation of the building envelope, core, and streetscape with intent to reposition the asset within the office and retail markets. The renovation also includes the addition of two floors for increased density and height allowable through modification of the existing Planned Unit Development (PUD). STUDIOS strong design vision enabled the project to move quickly through the Office of Planning and other regulatory entitlement reviews.
