Originally built in the 1920's, The Bowen Building was the first DC headquarters of the Laborers, from 1940-1959, before they moved to their current building at 905 16th St NW. The building was redeveloped into a modern, first-class office building in 2004, preserving only the existing facade, which was deemed historic by the DC Historic Preservation Review Board.
