195. Watergate Office Building
The Watergate's lead architect, Italian Luigi Moretti, apparently was "Mussolini's favorite architect". The complex is notable for being the only U.S. building designed by this Italian architect. The curvilinear complex, which includes the hotel, two office buildings, and three apartment buildings, was designed and constructed between 1964 and 1971.
