“Emerging from the pandemic-generated recession, ASB has seized on an excellent opportunity to execute on our ongoing strategy to trim portfolio exposure in office and retail and redeploy capital into industrial and multifamily assets,” Nicolas Franzetti, ASB’s senior vice president, said in prepared remarks.  

The five-story property, with a basement, was originally built in 1909 and underwent a major renovation in 2001. The building features 55,000-square-foot floor plates and contains two elevator cores.

At the time of the sale, it was 97 percent leased, with a tenant roster that included the Metropolitan Police Service, Department of Health Services and other District government agencies.
