Inside Capital One’s massive new headquarters tower
Capital One unveiled its massive new headquarters tower to the media on Friday. The 31-story building in Tysons is the tallest occupied structure in the Washington, D.C., area.
The tower, located at 1600 Capital One Drive, is adjacent to Capital One’s current headquarters and conference center, which the financial services company will continue to occupy. Roughly 2,000 employees already have moved into the 470-foot structure. Another 1,000 employees should move in by early December.
The building includes a conference center, cafeteria and fitness center. Capital One broke ground on the new headquarters project about four years ago. Partners on the project included development manager Cushman & Wakefield, general contractor Davis/Gilford Construction and architects Bonstra Haresign Architects and HKS Inc.
The tower is only part of the company’s expansion plans. Future development includes the 125,000-square-foot Capital One Center, which will house a 1,500-seat auditorium available for public performances. An 80,000-square-foot Wegmans and hotel also are planned for the campus.
Additionally, the company will break ground on another office building in February. That building should be complete by early 2023 and house around 3,200 Capital One employees currently located in other buildings around Tysons. The 410-foot building will consist of two towers joined by an atrium, with ground floor retail.
