WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 31, 2012 – Jones Lang LaSalle facilitated a pre-lease transaction between Penzance and CNA for 175,000 square feet at 3001-3003 Washington Boulevard in Arlington, Virginia. CNA, a not-for-profit research and analysis organization, will relocate its headquarters to Clarendon from its current location at 4825 Mark Center Drive in Alexandria, VA upon completion of the development in early 2014.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Northern Virginia Agency Leasing team represented Penzance, the developer in the transaction. CNA was represented by Jones Lang LaSalle and UGL Equis.
“This relocation will have a positive impact on the Clarendon region with more than 600 CNA employees moving to the new location,” said Bob VeShancey, Managing Director, Jones Lang LaSalle. “With groundbreaking scheduled for the spring of 2012, this is an important transaction, marking one of the first office buildings to conform to the Arlington County Clarendon Sector Plan.”

Developed by Penzance, 3001-3003 Washington Boulevard is a new, 280,000-square-foot mixed-use project located one block from the Clarendon Metro Station. The location functions as two separate buildings, consisting of a 10-story, 200,000-square-foot office building attached to an 8-story, 80,000-square-foot office building.

The development will feature a public plaza and expansive sidewalk areas to accommodate café tables and outdoor seating for retail tenants. In addition, 3001-3003 Washington Boulevard is designed to achieve LEED Silver standards.
