WASHINGTON, July 25, 2012 – Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE:JLL) has been chosen by TIAA-CREF to lease 1900 K Street, a distinctive trophy asset in the heart of downtown Washington.

The 13-story, 337,000-square-foot office building features a distinctive curtain wall system, using contrasting bands of glass and raised mullions. A semicircular corner entrance, glass-walled rotunda and an impressive three-story lobby atrium distinguish the property, which was designed by internationally acclaimed architect Cesar Pelli.

In addition, the building has achieved a LEED EB Silver Certification, a designation given to buildings that excel in energy-efficiency and sustainability and have a low environmental impact. 

“This is one of the most prominent trophy buildings in downtown Washington, and we look forward to reintroducing it to the market,” said Evan Behr of Jones Lang LaSalle.
