“We are excited about the opportunity to be located in NoMa, an emerging ‘green’ neighborhood that will allow our workers to use public transportation and potentially live very near where they work,” said David Willett, Sierra Club National Press Secretary. “The new building will provide excellent work space along with great proximity to Capitol Hill.”
“NoMa is a perfect location for The Sierra Club,” said Elizabeth Price, President of the NoMa Business Improvement District. “All of NoMa’s new buildings, including 111 K Street, are incorporating best practices in green design. In addition, NoMa’s great public transportation and bicycle access will allow tenants and residents alike to reduce their carbon footprints.”
Recently, J Street Development sold its 165,000 square foot property at 1111 North Capitol Street, N.E. in NoMa to NPR. All of NPR’s 600 Washington-based journalism, multimedia, business and executive activities will be housed in this new facility, with occupancy planned for 2012.
