• Restoring an American Treasure:

    The American Dream Visitor Center

Three landmark properties at 1501, 1503, and 1505 Pennsylvania Avenue are home to the Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream. Two adjacent twelve-story buildings located at 730 and 734 15th Street house the Washington, D.C., offices of the Milken Institute, and when renovated will feature a state-of-the-art conference center and event facilities. The office towers will also host other private tenants and a members' club.

This photo shows crowds gathered in front of the Riggs Bank building to watch a military parade led by General Pershing in September 1919.  Soldiers marched up 15th Street and turned onto Pennsylvania Avenue through a temporary Victory Arch built to commemorate the end of World War I.

The American Dream Visitor Center (opening 2023)

The American Dream Visitor Center respects the history of the buildings by retaining their character and original design elements. Updated finishes and layouts, plus the latest technology, will embody the ideals of the American Dream and give life to exhibits, programs and conferences.
