Executive Vice President Tony Womack, Senior Vice President Alex Hancock and Vice President Bernie McKeever Jr. are providing office leasing services for the 398,000-square-foot building on behalf of WashREIT.

“WashREIT has done an impressive job of positioning this asset to stand out in the Rosslyn submarket,” said Womack. “Arlington Tower not only offers an exceptional amenity package, but also uniquely breathtaking views of Washington, D.C. Combining this with WashREIT’s distinguished sponsorship and operational expertise provides companies a best-in-class office experience.”

The 19-story tower provides tenants an all-in-one venue, with a spacious fitness center, expansive, first-floor conference center, and high-end rooftop terrace, in addition to a recently renovated networking lounge and cafe.

Arlington Tower is home to WashREIT’s flagship Space+ location featuring two floors of private office suites and shared amenities. The program accommodates a range of tenant needs in the post-COVID era. Combined with WashREIT’s pandemic policies and re-entry plan, Arlington Tower is the safest and most flexible luxury office experience in the region.

With tenant demand for accessible office space continuing to grow, Arlington Tower benefits from a proficient transportation network. A three-minute walk to the Blue, Orange and Silver Metro lines offer direct access to downtown Washington, D.C., the Pentagon, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington-Dulles International Airport. Rosslyn’s location also provides commuters convenient access to several significant roadways including the George Washington Parkway, Interstate 66 and Route 50.

The Rosslyn submarket has found success through its Business Improvement District in placemaking and enhancing employee’s experiences. In conjunction with notable high-tech companies growing their employee base, workplaces have grown beyond the historical niche of government contractors and agencies. Enhanced community engagement efforts have accounting, healthcare, consulting and financial institutions thriving in Rosslyn.
