Post Building Not Historic Enough

September 16, 2013

The District’s top advocacy group on behalf of historical buildings has decided against trying to declare The Washington Post building on L Street Northwest a historical landmark, removing a potential hurdle should it be sold to a developer. The seven-story building at 1515 L St. NW was completed in 1950 when The Post relocated from E Street NW, a few doors down from the National Theatre. Construction was financed using loans provided by the family of late publisher, Katharine Graham. (WaPo)
