DCAR will soon have a brand new home! While we currently split our time between our current DC office (500 New Jersey Ave.) and the GCAAR office in Rockville (15201 Diamondback Dr.), we’re soon going to move into our own, brand new offices near Dupont Circle.

Updates will be provided regularly over the coming weeks, so make sure to check back at this page often. You can also keep up with the latest news on our social media channels:

Construction

Construction began in mid-August, and we’ll provide periodic updates as to where we are in the project. We’re getting closer to the finishing date, which we hope will come in early 2018. For now, we finally have our very own place, and we love it!

The property belonged to an organization in a very different industry, so we had plenty of work to do to remodel it once we took over the keys. Once construction began, we’ve stopped by to check on the progress every week, and we thought it’d be nice to provide you with a glimpse at the process. We’ll continue to provide periodic updates with photos to keep you looped in. Here’s where we’re at so far:
