WASHINGTON, D.C. – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®) and Washington, D.C.-based Acento Real Estate Partners announce the sale of Gatewood Plaza, an 88,995-square-foot office asset located in Fairfax, Virginia. The property is 96% occupied, including long-term tenants Trident Systems and PE Systems.  

“Fairfax’s strong labor pool and local amenity base, coupled with its superior access to the Washington metropolitan area, make it a desirable location for both owners and occupiers of commercial real estate,” said Clarke Crenshaw, Senior Managing Director for TIG. “These market drivers, in conjunction with the building’s impressive tenant retention rate, present a great opportunity for the asset's new owner.”

Located at 10201 Fairfax Boulevard, Gatewood Plaza sits on 3 acres near the intersection of Route 123 and US Route 50. The building, which was renovated in 2015, offers abundant parking, excellent signage and visibility, an outdoor patio with seating, and efficient floor plates that can accommodate both single- and multi-tenant configurations.

The asset also offers convenient transportation access to Interstate 66, providing direct access to the Washington metropolitan area, as well as proximity to numerous dining, shopping, entertainment and hospitality options offered by various modern mixed-use developments in Fairfax. The property is located less than 25 minutes from Washington Dulles International Airport and Reagan National Airport.

Transwestern’s Mid-Atlantic Capital Markets Group, led by Gerry Trainor, represented the seller in the transaction.
