Dear Mr. Wiedefeld:

In its meeting of 21 November, the Commission of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the final design for the renovation of and additions to an existing nine-story office building located at 300 Seventh Street, SW, to serve as the new headquarters of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. The Commission members expressed appreciation for the design team’s responsiveness to their comments from the previous reviews.

The Commission looks forward to seeing the completion of this project. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
