Designed by architect Sir Richard Rogers, 300 New Jersey Ave., due for completion in November 2008, will be an LEED-certified, 255,391-square-foot building with all-glass-façade construction above a six-level, 450-space underground parking garage. The property will feature a rooftop terrace, an outside plaza and a fitness center. Additionally, a 10-story, glass enclosed atrium will serve to connect the properties, which are 77 percent leased to Jones Day. *** What's your opinion?
