601 13th St. NW – The Homer Building

The Homer Building, at 601 13th St. NW, was a 4-story building constructed in 1913.  It was designed by architect Appleton Clark, in the Beaux Arts style, with a concrete structure and terra-cotta facade.

In 1990, Akridge redeveloped it into a 12-story office building, preserving just the facade of the Homer Building.  The new building extends 8 stories above the original building.  Those new stories are of cast stone and masonry.
