1100 New York Avenue
Structure in General
- The building was constructed over an art deco Greyhound Bus Station built in 1940. The depot's steamlined façade can be seen at the north entrance on New York Avenue.
- The postmodern design pays homage to the art moderne style of the station, so that the lobbies and façades are well integrated.
- A skylit atrium extends the full height of the building near the south entrance.
- The rotunda is decorated with murals by John Grazier.
- A small public museum on antique Greyhound buses is in the north lobby.
- The Hotel Annapolis previously stood on the south side of this site.
- The building gained new prominence after demolition of the Washington Convention Center in 2005. It is visible from many locations to the east across the superblock, which awaits redevelopment.
- The original bus depot was designed by William J. Arrasmith of Louisville.
