8,000 SF of Creative Tech Space in Ballston, VA

 

Just a hop, skip, and a 15 minute ride west from Washington, DC and we arrive in the Ballston submarket of Arlington, Virginia.

Once the home to primarily government contractors, the Rosslyn-Ballston (“R-B”) Corridor has continued to gain traction with a growing number and type of tenants due to its supply of relatively newly constructed and renovated buildings.  Another big draw is the easy access to metro and the fact that if you commute from DC in the morning, you’ll be going against traffic and might actually have a seat on the metro.  If you’re coming from Virginia, your ride is 15 minutes shorter than it would be going to DC.  If you are driving, monthly parking in Ballston is about $100 cheaper, per month, than DC.  It looks like you win either way.

671 North Glebe is just two blocks from the Ballston metro and sits atop Ballston Mall – soon to be Ballston Quarter.  There we find an incredible 7,942 SF sublease of new build out that offers unparalleled views from the 16th floor.

 

This creative space has all the makings of a hip, modern suite that we find in the techiest of spaces in DC.  With an open café, 6 offices, 46 workstations and benching areas, 671 N Glebe offers a healthy mix of open layout with the necessary privacy of a few phone rooms and three huddle rooms.  Added touches?  It has those too.  In a space that is relatively void of doors, the doors they do have on the phone rooms and huddle rooms have sliding barn doors.

The next tenant that calls this space home will have elevator lobby exposure, 3 sides of windowline and whiteboard walls throughout to put all of their money making ideas on paper (or walls, as the case may be).

Proximity to metro, parking in the building, and brand new Tech build out makes for an easy argument as to why a Tech company would set up shop in Ballston.  Throw in the fact that the rate would be in the $40s, full service, and there are almost 7 years of term left on this sublease, it appears that the next question might be, when do you want to see it?
