The intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and F Street NW in Washington, D.C., has transformed into Capitol Hill’s go-to destination thanks to Solarban 72 Acuity glass by Vitro Architectural Glass.

Architectural firm Leo A. Daly specified Solarban 72 Acuity glass for 20 Mass’s new, sweeping glass curtainwall which enables peak energy performance and maximizes daylighting and occupant comfort. Ths glass is a triple-silver-coated solar control low-e glass designed specifically for application to Starphire Ultra-Clear and Acuity low-iron glass substrates also by Vitro. Specially engineered for vision glazings, Acuity glass is ideal for distinctive exterior applications such as atriums, skylights and spandrel glass.

The revamped 20 Mass offers 183,000 square feet of office space, 13,800 square feet of retail, and a 14,500 square foot penthouse amenity space with views of the Capitol. It is also home to the luxury Royal Sonesta Washington, D.C. Capitol Hill hotel and offers direct access to world-renowned D.C. landmarks and attractions.

The NAIOP DC|MD has recognized 20 Mass for best renovation at the association’s annual Awards of Excellence Gala in 2023, which honours outstanding achievements in commercial real estate. The Best Renovation category recognizes redevelopment projects throughout Washington and surrounding Maryland counties.
