Stream Realty Partners is pleased to announce Barnes & Thornburg will be relocating its Washington, D.C., office, currently at 1717 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, to District Center at 555 12th St. NW.
Stream represented the ownership, a joint venture between MetLife Investment Management and Norges Bank Investment Management, in the long-term lease with Barnes & Thornburg. The national full-service law firm’s lease of 35,037 square feet of prime space on the 12th floor of the building represents growth of nearly 25%, bringing a wave of optimism and material growth to the downtown commercial market.
The building’s ownership has made a material investment in the property to create a unique and welcoming environment for tenants to welcome back their employees to the office. The amenity-rich environment, strength of ownership, central location, and flexible space were all factors in Barnes & Thornburg’s decision to lease space in District Center.
