1000 Connecticut Avenue is a high-rise building located in the United States capital of Washington, D.C.. This building replaced a previous one, built in 1956, that was demolished in the winter of 2007.

The architect of the current building was James Ingo Freed, who teamed with New York firm of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners to design the postmodern structure of the building. This was one of several projects, including the United States Air Force Memorial that were underway when the architect died in 2005. The previous building was valued at approximately $ 25 million. The previous building served as the headquarters for real estate agency, Manta. The previous building rose to 153 feet (47 m); due to the Heights of Buildings Act of 1910, the building's height was restricted to being lower than the width of the right-of-way of the avenue on which the building fronts. The new 1000 Connecticut Avenue was completed in 2012. A law firm, Arent Fox, leases eight floors of the building.
