CLEVER NAVY YARD CONVERSION AT 80 M ST SE
Appeals to Millennials & Connects Building to Neighborhood

Wingate Hughes reinvents the Navy Yard office building  80 M Street SE from dated and disconnected to unified and approachable. The inviting design appeals to the evolving needs of the Millennial workforce and enhances 80 M's connection with the Navy Yard community through a locally inspired entrance and lobby transformation. The design creates opportunities for tenants to connect in a chic, must-see amenity space that many think is a neighborhood hot spot, not an office lobby.

They each enjoyed an exclusive dinner party at our latest DC commercial amenity space designs at 1110 Vermont Ave NW and 80 M St SE. We enjoyed great food, drinks, company, and entertainment - including two mentalists from Pelonkey. Minds were blown.
