Transwestern’s leasing team includes Phil McCarthy, Keith Foery, Guy Copperthite and Mark Boyce.

“This property generates a great deal of interest from prospective tenants,” said Foery. “Foulger-Pratt has done an amazing job of combining trophy-quality office buildings with an array of unique walkable amenities and restaurants at Park Potomac. This building is more than just a modern, well-designed workspace; it’s part of a amenity-rich community that also offers free shuttle bus service to the White Flint Metro Station and direct access to Interstate 270 and Montrose Road.”
