I live in Carlyle and used to work at Hoffman. Talk about a great commute! This is great news for the Eisenhower East community especially with the National Science Foundation on the way.
On behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has signed a lease renewal for 606,575 square feet at Hoffman Tower II in Alexandria.
“This is the largest lease in the Washington, D.C., region in 2014, and is one of the top five in the region in the last five years,” Brendan Owen, chairman of the Asset Services Group for Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) said in a statement. He and NGKF Principal Scott Johnston represented the owner, The Hoffman Co., while CBRE represented the government.
“The Department of Defense has occupied the site for more than 30 years, and more recently has modernized the building, including energy efficiency upgrades,” said Owen.
Hoffman Tower II is part of Hoffman Town Center, an urban mixed-use development in central Alexandria, developed by The Hoffman Co. Located adjacent to the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station and within three blocks of the U.S. Federal District Courthouse, Hoffman Town Center represents the potential for more than 5million square feet of office, retail and residential space on 54 acres.
