What do you think of the Intelsat building? Is its “space age” architectural style worth preserving? Someone thinks so.
The DC Preservation League has filed an application with DC’s Historic Preservation Office seeking landmark status for the building. The league views the former Intelsat headquarters as an important part of DC’s architectural history that should be preserved.
