Each of the organizations located in the Pennsylvania Avenue building are dedicated to international trade and globalization. Organizations headquartered in this building include the U.S. Agency for International Development, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The first private sector lease was signed with investment banking firm Quarterdeck Investment Partners, Inc. The building hosts conferences, trade shows, cultural events, and outdoor concerts. However, following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, security requirements for high-profile federal buildings have limited the extent of the public/private access anticipated by the center's designers.

    It’s true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance?
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)

    Though in the trade of war I have slain men,
    Yet do I hold it very stuff o’ the conscience
    To do no contrived murder. I lack iniquity
    Sometimes to do me service.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Louise Bryant: I’m sorry if you don’t believe in mutual independence and free love and respect.
    Eugene O’Neill: Don’t give me a lot of parlor socialism that you learned in the village. If you were mine, I wouldn’t share you with anybody or anything. It would be just you and me. You’d be at the center of it all. You know it would feel a lot more like love than being left alone with your work.
    Warren Beatty (b. 1937)

    Let us not forget who we are. Drug abuse is a repudiation of everything America is.
    —Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)

    Notice how he has numbered the blue veins
    in my breast. Moreover there are ten freckles.
    Now he goes left. Now he goes right.
    He is building a city, a city of flesh.
    He’s an industrialist.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
