601 Thirteenth Street, NW

In 1990 The Homer Building's historic lobby and original four-story facade were incorporated into a new, 460,000 square-foot, 12-story building with a full height atrium. It was Akridge's first integration of new development and historic preservation, and is one of the most elegant structures in Washington's commercial center. Located atop Metro Center station, its premier amenities, including a full-service concierge, a conference center, a roof deck with rare views of the DC skyline, and a full-service fitness facility, make The Homer Building the destination for business in downtown Washington. The building has received numerous accolades, including the BOMA International's Office Building of the Year Award.

Akridge continues to maintain this trophy-class office and retail property to the highest standards, continuously upgrading technology, incorporating green features, and enhancing amenities. The Homer Building is now owned by Mitsui Fudosan America, Inc., a majority interest shareholder.

The Homer Building achieved LEED Gold Certification in 2011, is an EPA ENERGY STAR labeled property, has received a BOMA 360 Performance Building designation, and is Wired Certified Platinum.

Space is currently available for lease at The Homer Building.
