A comprehensive renovation and high-end build-out for an international law firm

McDermott Will & Emery LLP leased 171,000 square feet at 500 North Capitol Street, enabling the firm to relocate its offices to what is now known as “The McDermott Building.” The relocation required a complete renovation and modernization of the 230,000-square-foot building, designed by Gensler for Boston Properties and Clark Enterprises, involving new mechanical/electrical systems, a new glass facade, and the addition of a ninth floor and roof deck. The new top floor will serve as a state-of-the-art conference center for the law firm, with exceptional views of the US Capitol and downtown DC. The modernization has been designed to LEED®-Silver certification standards.
