Did you know DC has a similar building to NY's Flatiron Building? The iconic Dupont Circle Office Building located at 1350 Connecticut Ave was designed by Mihran Mesrobian in 1931. In 1942, the property was converted from apartments to an office building and went under further renovations in the late 1980's. According to the AIA Guide of Washington, DC, "The genius of this wedge shaped structure lies in its masterful bas-relief ornament, which lends visual depth and rhythm to the main facades, but keeps the profile of the building taut and planar so as not to distract from its apparent geometrical purity when viewed on end.

The Brookland neighborhood in Northeast Washington is situated to the east of Catholic University and north of Rhode Island Ave NE. The name of the DC neighborhood comes from Col. Jehiel Brooks, a War of 1812 veteran, who settled in the city in 1830 as a "gentleman farmer" on a country estate.  The estate was inherited by his wife and in 1840 they built a mansion on the estate named, Bellair.  Years later in 1873, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad ran through the estate with a stop named Brooks Station. Col. Brooks died in 1886 and the property was sold by his heirs. Purchased by developers, streets were laid out and lots for construction were sold off - and for the first time, the area was referred to as "Brookland".
