Newmark announced its appointment by WashREIT (WRE) as the exclusive leasing agent for Quantico Corporate Center’s (QCC’s) Buildings One and Two at 925 and 1000 Corporate Drive in Stafford, Virginia. Executive Managing Director Larry FitzGerald, Managing Director Jeff Tarae and Managing Director John Lench will market and handle the leasing for the Class A office buildings that were acquired by WashREIT in 2010.
“Larry, Jeff and John are the Stafford market experts,” said WashREIT’s Anthony Chang. “We know they are capable of attracting more great tenants to the community of innovators we’re building here which already includes Mantech, Mitre, Marine Corps Systems Command, Peridot Solutions and Kalman & Company.”
Quantico Corporate Center is situated less than a mile from Marine Corps Base Quantico. The high-profile base is a cornerstone of the community and the development of robust business parks such as QCCS offers quality and convenience to companies doing business with the Marine Corps, FBI and the Military Department Investigative Agencies (MDIA) at the nearby Russell-Knox Building.
“The Quantico Corporate Center is a rare opportunity for tenants looking to be close to Quantico and have signage visibility from I-95,” said Newmark’s Tarae.
Each building in the development is LEED-certified and features four stories with 35,000 SF floorplates. The campus setting is highly amenitized-that paired with its location sets Quantico Corporate Center apart from other developments in the area.
“QCCS is unique in the market because it has an array of onsite fast-casual dining establishments, fitness center options, several hotel choices and even opportunities with academic partners through the Stafford Technology & Research Center,” added Newmark’s FitzGerald. “It would be difficult to find another campus with this combination of amenities and proximity to Marine Corps Base Quantico, which is one of the reasons we’re excited about this assignment.”
