JLL secures $110 million in permanent financing for 1776 Eye Street NW

Taking advantage of a limited supply pipeline of office space in the nation's capital, Rockrose Development Corp. today announced it has secured $110 million in permanent financing for the 224,000-square-foot Class A office asset at 1776 Eye Street NW. JLL's Capital Markets​ experts secured the financing through Helaba Bank.

Managing Directors Wes Boatwright, Mike Yavinsky, Jon Goldstein and Vice President Trevor Campbell led the JLL team on this transaction. 

Rockrose acquired the building in 2012 and engaged high-profile architecture firm Leo A. Daly to transform it into a differentiated high-end property. Today at 1776 Eye Street, a striking, two-story frameless glass entrance to the building opens into a dramatic new lobby featuring Pei Tan's signature glowing "glass Light fins" and 30-foot-high ceilings. Other trophy-level improvements included new restrooms and common areas, an expanded and re-formulated rooftop terrace, and Revolution Fitness, a fitness center with spa-like locker and shower facilities. Just steps away from the White House, the building is located directly across the street from the Farragut West Metro Station and one block from the World Bank.
