    Thank heaven we have come a long way from this and GW’s Red Lion Row in the block between 20th and 21st streets when it comes to integrating historic buildings and new development. A few examples of a more enlightened treatment are:

    The Willard Hotel and office building by Hardy Holzman Pfiffer (Malcolm Holzman design partner)
    1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW by Hartman-Cox
    555 11th Street NW – by Hartman-Cox
    The Ventana @ 912 F Street, NW – by Shalom Baranes
    The 800 Block of F Street, NW (includes International Spy Museum, Zola, residential units, and office space in the historic buildings and office space in an addition behind the historic buildings best seen from 8th Street and from the portico of the NPG/SAAM – by Shalom Baranes
