Newmark announces that Karsun Solutions, an IT modernization firm delivering a portfolio of services to its federal and commercial customers, is moving to 12825 Worldgate Drive taking approximately 50,000 square feet. The firm was recently recognized as one of the Fantastic 50, an annual ranking of the fastest growing companies in Virginia by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
Senior Managing Director Chethan Rao, Executive Managing Director Junius Tillery, Executive Managing Director Brian Liss and Managing Director Andrew Roberts of Newmark’s Tysons Tenant Representation team represented Karsun Solutions in the transaction.
“The Newmark team took the time to truly understand the core requirements and long-term strategy of our quickly expanding organization and developed a real estate plan to meet our needs today and in the future,” said Sundar Vaidyanathan of Karsun Solutions. “They kept an eye on employee amenities and access to the Metro so that we can retain and attract the talent we need to respond effectively to the evolving demands of our industry today and in the future.”
In early April, Karsun Solutions announced it had been awarded an $80 million Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Grants Management Modernization (GMM) Program Agile development contract. In March KHS, a Karsun Solutions/Mindcubed Mentor Protégé, announced they were selected for the SEC One IT contract vehicle. In addition to the firm’s recent contract wins, Karsun Solutions’ fast expansion earned the firm a spot on Inc. 5000 four years in a row. The firm currently has over 100 open positions ranging from Project Management to DevOps, Data and Security Engineers.
“As a result of a few large contract wins, Karsun Solutions has rapidly grown in the past few years in various office suites across a number of buildings,” said Newmark’s Rao. “This new space gives the firm a headquarters and an opportunity to brand the look, feel and operation of the office. Karsun will also have prominent identity on the Toll Road as well as be within walking distance of the Silver Line’s Herndon Metro station.”
12825 Worldgate Drive is part of the four-building Worldgate Metro Plaza and is currently undergoing renovations that will include a contemporary bright and open lobby, a tenant wifi lounge with food service and a state-of-the-art conference center. Upgrades also include a modern fitness center with bike lockers, gaming space and a yoga room that opens to an outdoor fitness area. The location along the Dulles Toll Road offers prominent sign visibility.
