Bond Building

1901, George S. Cooper. 14th St. and New York Ave. NW
  • Bond Building (Franz Jantzen)

The seven-story Bond Building has been described as a “hectic wedding cake of classical revival motifs.” 37 Its location at the prominent corner of 14th St. and New York Avenue is accented by its rounded corner, which is decorated with a range of rectangular and oval windows. From its heavily rusticated, two-story base, the three-story shaft is expressed with round-arch openings and occasional balconies. The two-story capital has one story with flat-arch windows and one with round arches. Recently, Shalom Baranes added four new upper stories of paired columns, ribbon windows, and a classical colonnade.
