PNC Place/800 17th Street

Washington, D.C.

On a site with views to the White House and Washington Monument, owner PNC, developer Vornado and Gensler faced a challenge: designing a building memorable in its own right while respecting the surrounding monumental context. Through a charrette process that called on talent drawn from around the world, the resulting design establishes new benchmarks for the site and for sustainable and architectural design in a city known more for tradition than innovation. When complete, PNC Place will be one of Washington, D.C.’s first LEED® Platinum buildings.
