After two decades at 1111 20th Street NW in Washington, DC, the Peace Corps will leave its West End submarket space for the NoMa district. Savills Studley completed a 173,000-square-foot lease to relocate the Peace Corps headquarters to One Constitution Square in 2019.
The Peace Corps will occupy floors two through seven of the 12-story, 350,000-square-foot office building at 1275 First Street NE. The facility will be renamed the Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Headquarters, after the former Peace Corps director and U.S. Senator from Georgia.
Peace Corps’ Sheila Crowley says, “The NoMa building is Platinum LEED certified, and will include much-needed conferencing facilities, teaming rooms, and media centers to increase opportunities for communication and collaboration across our overseas and domestic offices.”
Savills Studley’s Todd Valentine represented the GSA, and Cushman & Wakefield’s Darian LeBlanc represented landlord, StonebridgeCarras, which developed the asset in partnership with Walton Street Capital in 2010.
