WASHINGTON, D.C. – Transwestern Commercial Services (TCS) today announces The Bernstein Companies has named it the exclusive sales agent for Parkview, a 103,935-square-foot office building at 1300 Spring St. in the Silver Spring submarket. Parkview offers investors the opportunity to acquire a high-quality asset in a Class A location for well below replacement cost with the ability to add value through increased rental rates as tenant leases expire.

Parkview is currently 92% leased and has enjoyed strong historical occupancy. The diverse tenant base, including both medical and credit tenants, exemplifies the building’s flexibility and provides a well-rounded source of income. Silver Spring is an exceptionally strong market with a steady decline in vacancy rates since 2010.

Situated at the corner of Spring Street and Georgia Avenue, Parkview features numerous nearby retailers, arts, entertainment and restaurant amenities and is just minutes from downtown Silver Spring and Bethesda. The building is within walking distance of the Silver Spring Metro, which is served by Metrorail, Metrobus and MARC Trains. Parkview’s current owner has completed a comprehensive renovation program totaling nearly $2.8 million, including upgrades to the lobby, roof, elevators, restrooms and parking garage.

Transwestern’s Mid-Atlantic Capital Markets Group includes Gerry Trainor, Jim Cardellicchio, and Mark Glagola. The team focuses on investment sales services throughout the Washington, D.C., region, providing clients with exceptional service and market knowledge.
