Today's print edition of the Washington Business Journal
has an article summing up what's going on right now with various commercial projects around Near Southeast. (The online article
is for subscribers only for the first 30 days; sorry.) Here are the new items:
* William C. Smith is planning to hold off breaking ground on its 200,000-sq-ft building at 250 M Street
until it pre-leases at least 30% of the building.
* Opus East
has leased 80,000 sq ft at 100 M Street
(33% of the building) to government contractor Parsons Corp.
* Lerner's 20 M Street
does not as yet have any office tenants.
* It also mentions that Opus East is planning to build the 440,000-sq-ft office building at 1015 Half Street
(the old Nation site) on spec; but it should be noted that Opus hasn't yet officially announced its purchase of this property or its plans.
(The article also summarizes what's going on at Florida Rock
, using some source materials
that are hard to find anywhere other than here at JDLand. Note to reporters and other professionals using my site: yup, lots of stuff is posted here, and it's all free, but be a grownup and say where you found it.)
In addition, there's an ad in the print edition
giving us our first peek at the Shalom Baranes design for 1100 South Capitol Street
, Ruben Companies's planned 350,000 sq ft office building on the southeast corner of South Capitol and L. There's currently no timeline for development of this project.
The print edition also has a piece
written by GSA about the US Department of Transportation completing its move to its new headquarters
at New Jersey and M. It describes the HQ's interiors and exteriors, and mentions that this project is the largest lease ever executed in DC.
