Activating Federal Places
Federal office buildings often lack character and street-level activity by not including the type of mixed-use amenities that contribute to a vibrant city center.
NCPC's Activating Federal Places is a new how-to-guide for federal agencies. The handbook addresses current challenges, offers innovative solutions, and showcases successful precedents in the nation's capital and beyond.
