Washington, DC, June 27, 2005 — The Washington office of Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide opens for business today in a new custom-designed space at 1111 19th Street NW.
Ogilvy PR, a global marketing communications firm, had been located around the corner, at 1901 L Street NW, since 1981. The move was prompted by the agency’s continued growth and a desire for a workspace better suited to the agency’s changing needs.
“We’re tremendously excited about the new space,” said Robert F. Mathias, managing director of the Washington office. “It gives us the flexibility and facilities we need to better serve our clients and meet the needs of increasingly integrated account and creative teams.”
Ogilvy PR will occupy two full floors (9th and 10th) in the Class A building. The floors are connected by an internal staircase — a key feature designed to encourage interaction and movement among the staff.
The office was designed by the architectural firm Gensler with input from Ogilvy PR creative and account teams. Turner Construction Company served as the general contractor.
The agency’s new mailing address is 1111 19th Street NW, 10th Floor, Washington, DC 20036. The main phone number is 202-729-4000.
