Fannie Mae is on the move and already has a good idea of what their new headquarters will look like. Fannie Mae will move to 1150 15th Street NW, which is currently occupied by The Washington Post. The Washington Post will leave the location next year to go to 1301 K Street NW with Fannie Mae occupying the new building in two phases starting in 2017. Fannie Mae will lease 85 percent of the building. Urban Turf reported that the new 1,252,060-square-foot headquarters will have an approximately 838,480-square-foot, 130-foot-high addition that will be distributed throughout the 12 floors. The addition will feature two office lobbies, a series of retail pavilions, and 579 parking spaces on three below-grade levels, as reported by Washington Business Journal. The two buildings will be linked by a 4,000-square-foot canopy structure. The team in charge of the project is Washington, D.C.-based architecture firm WDG Architecture and New York-based architecture firm SHoP Architects. SHoP Architects is most known for designs of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the Google headquarters expansion in Silicon Valley.
