Major expansion includes state-of-the-art conference facilities; new location on “America’s Main Street” near the White House and U.S. Capitol
Hudson Institute moved to new headquarters today at 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Suite 400, in Washington D.C.
The custom-designed offices and expanded conference and seminar spaces represent a major modernization of Hudson’s facilities and outreach capabilities. Located on Pennsylvania Avenue in the Heurich Building, the new offices are within close proximity to the White House, the U.S. Congress, and the National Mall.
“This marks an important day for Hudson Institute and we’re deeply grateful to the benefactors who made this move possible,” said Kenneth Weinstein, Hudson Institute president and CEO. “Hudson has always distinguished itself with unconventional thinking and pragmatic solutions. We’ve added significant talent in the past few years, including such noted experts as Walter Russell Mead, Michael Doran, and Arthur Herman. Our new headquarters are the linchpin in our ambitious growth strategy and an invaluable tool to showcase our work and expand our public profile. At our new Pennsylvania Avenue address, we’re looking forward to even closer relationships with our neighbors at both ends of the street.”
Designed by FOX Architects, the new LEED-certified offices incorporate contemporary, glass-focused interior design with panoramic street views of the Old Post Office building and Pennsylvania Avenue. A spacious 135-seat conference center features fully integrated broadcasting equipment and 2,000 square feet of configurable event space for receptions and public events. The new headquarters are two-thirds larger than the former location, and host multi-functional collaboration areas, offices, and a suite of conference rooms.
Hudson Institute was originally founded in 1961 under the leadership of nuclear strategist and futurist Herman Kahn in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. The relocation to 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue marks the fourth move in Hudson’s 55-year history.
An open house reception will be held at a future date to be determined. All mail should now be directed to Hudson Institute, 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue, Suite 400, Washington, D.C. 20004.
