This building is getting what a lot of buildings in the DC area get... a face lift. The base of this building is a Rite Aide drug store. I think the rest is just office buildings. It is interesting that this building and many near it are getting face lifts. What causes one building to update it's look and go 'modern' (what is modern anyway... who decides.. surely it's all objective anwyay) when so many new buildings are constructed taking great lengths to preserve the old face.
And do both types of construction take place merely to allow for owners to ask for increased rent?
Soon I'll post some construction photos from the historic district of Foggy Bottom.
