Located at the corner of 2nd and M Streets SE, directly across from the US Department of Transportation building, 250 M Street is home to the DC Department of Transportation. DDOT is the sole tenant of the building; the property also includes a Commuter Store, a monitor wall to provide updates on DDOT projects/current traffic conditions, and a conference center that will be available for community use. The building is designed to LEED Gold status.
DDOT took occupancy in the nine-story, 188,000 square foot building in March 2021. Among the notable features of the building are: a custom paint-on-canvas art installation in DDOT’s lunchroom, designed and created by a local DC artist; reclaimed wood provided by DDOT’s Urban Forestry division used to make work tables in collaboration spaces throughout the building; a fitness center; wellness and mothers’ rooms, and a prayer/worship room; and unique wall and floor art adorning elevator waiting areas on the 2nd to 9th floors.
