History

The Loft at 600 F is ideally located in the Chinatown/Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington, D.C. in the historic Oriental Building Association Building No. 6.

The OBA Building was designed by Washington architect Albert Goehner and constructed in 1909. It is one of the last remnants on the block to survive from its turn-of-the-century heyday as a thriving downtown business sector.

Today, the OBA Building is surrounded by large-scale, multi-storied office buildings constructed in the last decades of the 20th century and turn-of-the-21 st century.

Until 2003, the building housed the oldest, continuous-operating savings and loan association in the District of Columbia and possibly the oldest-operating savings and loan association in the United States.

The Oriental Building Association traces its origins to 1861 when four German businessmen, who were members of the Oriental Lodge, organized the association. The Oriental Lodge was a fraternal organization, most likely of the Freemasonry order.
