Meet The Aleck, our latest repositioning with The Meridian Group at 1400 L Street NW. This surgical renovation seeks to maximize each intervention and make every new detail and space count. At the ground level, an expanded two-story lobby activates the street and connects pedestrians to the light-filled space inside. The lobby strikes the perfect balance of elegance and industrial craftsmanship, and features a winding internal staircase leading to a third floor indoor-outdoor terrace. This feature space was strategically created by extending the 12-story building’s lobby into the existing corner plaza while leaving the core of its upper floors recessed. The renovation also includes the addition of multiple shared building amenities, including a coffee bar, break-out space and meeting areas, a 5,300-SF fitness center, and bike room.
