CIM acquired this mixed-use hotel, retail, and office complex in a joint venture with the JBG Companies and Loeb Partners. Located between the National Mall and the Washington Channel waterfront in the Southwest quadrant of Washington, D.C, L'Enfant Plaza was designed by I.M. Pei and built between 1968 and 1973. The complex includes two office buildings, a retail promenade, a full-service 370-room hotel, and 1,653 parking spaces.

CIM sold this property in 2007
