Baker Botts Becomes Anchor Tenant of Washington, D.C.’s 700 K Street at Anthem Row


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 21, 2020 – Baker Botts L.L.P. is pleased to announce that it has relocated its Washington, D.C. office to 700 K Street at Anthem Row, where it is the anchor tenant. The new site accommodates all of Baker Botts’ lawyers in the District with room for additional growth.

Baker Botts now occupies the top four floors of 700 K Street, a light-filled modern space. The firm’s occupancy comprises 103,000 square feet that include 14,000 square feet of space across an elevated bridge at 800 K Street as well as a 6,000-square-foot private outdoor terrace on the 9th floor of 700 K – overlooking the Carnegie Library building in Mount Vernon Square, a historic Washington landmark that serves as Apple's flagship location. The property is also near the Capital One Arena, CityCenterDC, the Marriott Marquis and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

“Among the criteria for our move was to find exceptional, quality space that would facilitate a collaborative working environment in a setting that will continue to invigorate one of our largest and fastest-growing offices,” said Managing Partner John Martin. “We considered dozens of the most premium real estate options in the Washington market. We found that home at 700 K.”

“We are moving offices at a time of great momentum for Baker Botts in Washington,” said Paul Cuomo, Partner-in-Charge of the Washington, D.C. office. “We have hired seven lateral partners in the last year alone and promoted another four to partner during that time. Our new space will help us maintain the exemplary levels of collaboration and collegiality that are hallmarks of our firm and also help facilitate additional growth in our D.C. office. I’d like to thank Mark White, our Chief Administrative Officer, Nancy Leap, our D.C. Office Administrator, Angie Allen, our Regional IT Manager - and her team, and our external teams at Hines, CBRE, Gensler, HITT, EvensonBest and OJB for their dedication and outstanding efforts on delivering this project, which will provide a first-class working environment for our D.C. office for many years to come.”

The new office space, conference facilities, employee lounge areas, and common spaces were all designed to Baker Botts’ specifications. The 700 K building includes amenities such as a large fitness center, collaboration space, and a pedestrian-only thoroughfare next to an Equinox gym.
