The American Pharmacists Association headquarters, formerly known as the American Institute of Pharmacy and dedicated on May 9, 1934, is the only privately-owned real estate on the National Mall. The original building was designed by John Russell Pope, whose work includes the National Archives, the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art, and the design for the building was originally submitted for consideration for a Lincoln Memorial in his home state.
The expanded building, completed in 2009, is LEED certified and includes the Potomac View Terrace, which is situated on the 6th floor. Located on Constitution Avenue directly between the Lincoln Memorial and the U.S. Department of State, the building offers unparalleled views of the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Pentagon, Air Force Memorial, Memorial Bridge and the Potomac River. Literally, the best of DC under one roof!
