Project information

The building design focuses on timelessness and a Washington aesthetic, with landscaping that will further enhance the original campus plan envisioned by the Olmsted Brothers, including extending a tree arc intended by the firm. Check our our short video on the Newhouse project to learn more about this effort.

DES expects construction on the building to be completed in late 2024. After that, work will turn to interior finishing and furnishing such as equipment that will support hybrid meetings.
