Ronald Reagan Building



"The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, named after former United States President Ronald Reagan, is the first federal building in Washington, D.C. designed for both governmental and private sector purposes.

Each of the organizations located in the Pennsylvania Avenue building are dedicated to international trade and globalization. Organizations headquartered in this building include the U.S. Agency for International Development, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The first private sector lease was signed with investment banking firm Quarterdeck Investment Partners, Inc. The building hosts conferences, trade shows, cultural events, and outdoor concerts. Post-9/11, security requirements for high-profile federal buildings have limited the amount of public/private access anticipated by the center's designers." ~ Wikipedia

  2. Isn't this a bit conflicting interests. Now I know why we have a German Bookshop in Amsterdam called "Die Weisse Rose".

    1. I've been suspicious, s.c., about the official reasons given for why the National Policy Institute was allowed to hold its post-election celebration in the Ronald Reagan Building so close (next door) to the Trump Hotel.

  6. Your soon to be president already has a few buildings with his name on them - at least for the time being.

  8. I tend to think there should be a thirty year moratorium on naming a place after a deceased politician.
