Chemonics International Headquarters at The Yards

Meany & Oliver represented Brookfield Properties/Forest City Realty Trust in the 288,641 square foot prelease to Chemonics International. This was the first build-to-suit lease at The Yards and brought Chemonics’ Virginia and DC locations into a single landmark building. Located at 1275 New Jersey Avenue, SE, Chemonics’ headquarters building will include ground-floor retail, several levels of outdoor terraces, adaptable meeting space and two levels of underground parking. The project is expected to deliver in 2021 and begins The Yards’ second phase which will include approximately 1.8 million square feet of office space. Once completed in 2030, The Yards will comprise 400,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, up to 3,400 multifamily units and a 225-room Thompson Hotel located on 48 acres on the Anacostia River waterfront.

Mount Vernon Place, Washington, DC

DC Bar Headquarters

Meany & Oliver represented Quadrangle Development Corporation and The Wilkes Company in the sale of an estimated $70 million build-to-suit building with the D.C. Bar for its new headquarters building at Mount Vernon Place.  Located at the intersection of 4th and I Streets, NW, this approximately 100,000 square foot LEED Silver building was designed by Hartman-Cox. Building features include floor-to-ceiling glass on all four sides of the building, efficient 15,000 square foot floor plates, high ceilings, state of the art conference facilities and a rooftop deck.  

Corporate Executive Board

Waterview, Arlington, VA

• Corporate Executive Board at the Waterview, Arlington, VA

One of Meany & Oliver’s most notable transactions was the representation of The JBG Companies in the negotiation of the 625,000 square foot lease with Corporate Executive Board at the Waterview building in Rosslyn, Virginia. At the time, this was the largest private sector office lease ever completed in the Washington, DC metropolitan area and the first major relocation of a firm from downtown Washington, DC to Arlington. The Corporate Executive Board lease at Waterview contributed significantly to the transformation of Rosslyn into the world-class urban environment it is today.
