Why Break In When You Can Lease the Office? (Watergate Complex)

Breaking News

One of the Watergate offices that was burglarized 34 years ago, setting off the scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon, is available for lease as new owners plan a renovation of the office building and shops.

The office, Suite 610, was one of four suites occupied by the Democratic National Committee in 1972, which Republican operatives entered to plant eavesdropping equipment.

"It's a very recognizable building," said Andrew T. Felber, a first vice president at CB Richard Ellis, which is one of the brokers leasing the office space. "Here's a unique opportunity to lease a piece of history."
