Jones Lang LaSalle to Market First LEED Gold Certified Building in The City of Frederick

Fully financed office building at 327 Ballenger Center will offer efficient floor space, prominent signage and a myriad of amenities

FREDERICK, MD, June 7, 2011 – Jones Lang LaSalle has been retained by Heritage Properties to lease 327 Ballenger Center in Frederick, MD.  Located within minutes of Frederick’s Westview Promenade and Fort Detrick, this will be the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certified building in Frederick City.  

The first phase of the project, the four-story Class A 120,765 square foot office building, is set for completion within nine months. The site has the ability to deliver up to 400,000 square feet of office space with additional floor-area ratio to achieve a campus-like environment.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Bernie McCarthy, Managing Director and Amanda Davis, Assistant Vice President will lead leasing efforts.

“Due to the availability of new, affordable housing and MARC rail accessibility, Frederick is quickly becoming a more appealing proposition for tenants, and 327 Ballenger Center offers a number of amenities, efficient floor plates and great signage,” said McCarthy. “Of the 148,000 square feet of office space in the Frederick County pipeline, 77.7 percent is preleased, which makes this site even more desirable.”

With unsurpassed highway exposure, this property provides businesses with signage directly facing route 70 and is also in close proximity to routes 351, 15 and 340. The building is served by many surrounding amenities, including daycare facilities, restaurants, pharmacies, convenience stores and banks. 

Additionally, 327 Ballenger Center will feature a fitness center complete with private locker rooms and showers.  The property will offer green amenities such as bicycle racks, a white reflective roof, water conserving plumbing elements and attractive landscaping.
