1500 Jefferson, located on the east side of the State Capitol Campus in Olympia, Washington, opened in July 2011. This project for the Washington State Department of Enterprise Services (DES) was the first major construction on the Capitol Campus in the past two decades.
The building consists of a six-story L-shaped office building with a three-story west wing that wraps a data center to the north and west. A new two-level, 300-stall underground parking garage serves the complex. Extensive traffic improvements were made for the site, including sidewalks for pedestrians, bike lanes for bicyclists, and a new landscaped roundabout for vehicles at the 14th Avenue and Jefferson Street SE juncture. These improvements create an inviting entry to the State Capitol Campus.
The building houses the Department of Enterprise Services and the Consolidated Technology Services, which manages the data center. The office complex offers a conference center with audio visual capabilities, a training center, bicycle parking and showering facility, and a retail restaurant/cafeteria concept.
1500 Jefferson is set within a landscaped environment reminiscent of the Olmstead design used on the remainder of the campus. The office building at 1500 Jefferson received LEED-CS Platinum certification in 2014.
1500 Jefferson was awarded "The Outstanding Building of the Year" (TOBY) award, in the Government Building category, for both the Pacific Northwest Region and the BOMA International level in 2016.
