Washington Gas was thrilled to move into its new corporate headquarters at 1000 Maine Avenue, SW in late July.
The new building is part of The Wharf development – a $2 billion, mixed-use neighborhood on the Southwest Waterfront in Washington, D.C. The Wharf offers three million square feet of offices, residential property, restaurants, hotels, a cultural arts center and more.
Washington Gas signed a 16-year lease at 1000 Maine Avenue, with nearly 200 employees – including its finance, legal, communications and public policy teams – occupying three floors in the building.
Going Green at The Wharf
In addition to providing mixed-use spaces, The Wharf offers state-of-the-art features including:
- Buildings designed to meet LEED Gold Core and Shell green building standards
- On-site sustainable energy production and conservation, including:
- Combined Heat and Power
- Energy-efficient lighting
- Solar Panels
- Close to public transportation, including the Metro Green Line, buses and The Wharf Shuttle
