Oliver Carr, CEO of Carr Properties, said: “We are thrilled to have Nick Stefanelli, a Michelin Star rated chef, and Blue Bottle Coffee joining as our initial street level tenants at Midtown Center.

Midtown Center is a newly developed mixed-use project located in the heart of downtown Washington, DC. The building features two office towers separated by an extraordinary European-style public plaza, together with 44,000 square feet of tremendous street retail space.
The plaza and retail space will serve as a gathering place for shoppers, tenants and pedestrians alike. Home to Fannie Mae’s new national headquarters, this new development boasts stunning bridges that create suspended connections between the East and West office towers.
Amenities of Midtown Center are consistent with the building’s first-class LEED Gold design and include three levels of below-grade parking; 5,000 SF fitness center; 1,300 SF bike room; a state-of-the-art rooftop conference center with stunning views of downtown Washington D.C.; and 44,000 square feet of retail.
The first phase of Midtown Center is now complete and construction of the final phase is slated for completion in June of 2018. Approximately 70,000 square feet of office space remains available together with 30,000 square feet of retail space. Dan Dooley and Kaitlyn Rausse of Carr Properties are leasing the office space at Midtown Center, and John Asadoorian, of Asadoorian Retail Solutions, is representing Carr Properties on the leasing of the retail space at Midtown Center.
