Compass is located in the midst of the vibrant 14th Street scene to the north of Thomas Circle. This site consists of three lots, two of which preserve their historic significance. A third empty lot now houses an additional building with a modern glazed façade. Compass, an up-and-coming real estate agency, is now the main resident of the office portion of the building.

Hickok Cole Interior Designers and Architects collaborated on a holistic design approach to satisfy the needs of the building as well as its occupants through a concurrent construction schedule. Architectural and Interior materials and finishes were selected to preserve the historic presence of the building as well as the 14th Street corridor’s unique character.
