Evan Weisman, GWSB MBA ’07, director of development at First Potomac Realty Trust in Washington, DC, along with his team, recently received LEED Platinum Certification for 440 First Street, NW.

440 First Street, NW is a newly redeveloped office building located in the prominent Capitol Hill submarket. The project is only the ninth LEED CS Platinum certified building in Washington, DC.

The LEED Platinum designation recognizes a building’s sustainable design and construction practices, which increase profitability while reducing a building’s negative environmental impact.

The 140,000-square-foot, Class A redeveloped building has a glass curtain wall design that allows natural light into the space and provides views of the Capitol and the Washington Monument. The property also features two rooftop terraces, a conference center/boardroom, a fitness center and underground parking, as well as ground floor retail and restaurant space.

440 First Street also utilizes the first ever DOAS HVAC system in Washington, DC. The installation uses an innovative HVAC system that provides a superior level of air quality for tenants, while using less energy than a traditional HVAC system.
