Smoke-Free Building
Capitol Crossing I is completely smoke-free as required by Washington, D.C law. Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the buildings, including all elevators, stairs, lobbies, penthouse, rooftop, corridors, restrooms, mechanical, storage, and janitorial areas, as well as all offices and work areas. Smoking is not permitted outside of the building within 25 feet of any operable windows, doors, outdoor air intakes or outdoor cafe seating areas.

 

Pet Policy
Animals including pets (dogs/cats) are prohibited from Capitol Crossing with the exception of service animals. Any violation of this policy may results in fines or dismissal. We ask that anyone with a service animal inform management so that it is included in our building log and shared with our security personnel who will reinforce this policy.

What is a service animal? 
Under ADA (Americans with  Disability Act), a service animal is a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Service animals are working animals, not pets

What does “do work or perform tasks" mean? 
The dog must be trained to take specific action when needed to assist the person with a disability. For example, guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take their prescribed medications, etc. 

Are emotional support, therapy, comfort, companion animals considered service animals? 
No. An emotional support animal (ESA) is NOT a service animal. These termers are used to describe animals that provide comfort just by being with a person. Because they have not been trained to perform a specific job or task, they do not quality as service animals. 

Can I bring my emotional support pet/dog to the office?
No. An emotional dog/cat is not a service animal/ As such they are not permitted in our buildings. 

What do I need to provide for my service animal? 
We simply ask that you notify management if you have a service animal. 

Lastly, all service animals must be under control of its handler. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless the individual’s disability prevents using these devices or  these devices interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of tasks. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
