Baskervill completed the $25 million conversion of the former Martha Jefferson Hospital into global headquarters for CFA, a financial services institution. Built in the 1920s, the Patterson Wing served as a hospital and cornerstone for nearby neighbors until intense growth prompted the construction of the South Wing, a seven-story structure built in the 1970s. Both wings were extensively renovated under National park Service guidelines to create a modern 143,000-sf workspace, complete with offices, a conference center, a data center, and a commercial kitchen. A seven-story glass atrium, located where the emergency room used to exist, features an open stairwell and common spaces that look our into the surrounding historic neighborhood. The final design is an open, airy workspace perfect for the modern worker. Numerous sustainable strategies— including a Living Machine that uses plants and bacteria to treat and reuse wastewater—earned the project a LEED Gold certification.
