The Washington Post has already voiced their intentions to seek and possibly build a new office space. Now, selling their current seven story digs on L Street might be a little easier as advocacy group, the D.C. Preservation League decided that the 1950 building is not a historical landmark. Their argument is architectural: despite the momentous events that may have occurred within its walls, the building itself is nothing special. This will give developers more freedom to do what they will with the current home of iconic paper. Who knows, 1515 L Street NW could even go the way of the old NPR building.
