    The Homer Building, a prewar neoclassic building that was designed by architect Appleton P. Clark and opened in 1913. The high-rise is located at 601 13th Street in the Penn Quarter of Washington, D.C. The building was renovated in 1990, refurbishing its classical exterior and the grand atrium that is its distinctive feature.

    The Homer’s lobby leads into an atrium full of natural light emanating from a giant skylight. The atrium is the full height of the building at twelves stories. Four large arches rest several floors above the lobby supporting the upper levels of the atrium. The atrium’s walls are lined with windows from the above spaces, allowing tenants to look down on the lobby.

    Above the building’s atrium there is also a roof deck which offers spectacular views of Downtown and its many historic landmarks. The building also offers a conference center, four levels of parking and also holds a good LEED certification for sustainability. Current tenants include BGR Group and Distributed Sun.

    The Homer Building’s is positioned on top of Metro Center, the city’s central subway hub, which allows tenants to commute from around the city as well as from the Maryland and Virginia suburbs right into their office. The Homer is also just a few blocks away from the Verizon Center where D.C.’s basketball and hockey franchises plays and where many musical performances take place.
