Monday November 16, 2015
The DC Bar has announced plans to purchase a site at 4th & I Streets, NW to build a new 100,000 square foot headquarters building. The building will break ground in the spring of 2016 and be developed by the current owners of the site, The Wilkes Company and Quadrangle Development Corporation. The DC Bar headquarters will office approximately 125 employees and more than 25,000 Bar member visitors. The Bar will occupy approximately 68,000 square feet within the building and have a remaining 32,000 square feet available for sublease to retail or other office companies. The building will include classroom programming to keep attorneys at the top of their practice areas, a production studio to allow the Bar to broadcast member events and knowledge both nationally and internationally and will support the Bar’s Pro Bono Center, which serves more than 20,000 people annually.
