Radio Free Asia Renews Lease for Over 68,000 SF in Downtown Washington

Non-profit news organization extends their lease at 2025 M Street in the Central Business District


WASHINGTON, Sept. 25, 2012 – Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE:JLL) announced that it represented Radio Free Asia, a nonprofit news organization, in a 10-year, 68,927-square-foot lease renewal at 2025 M Street, NW. Radio Free Asia broadcasts in nine languages to listeners throughout Asia who do not have access to full and free news media.

Managing Director Chris Bynum and Vice President John Lugar of Jones Lang LaSalle completed the transaction on behalf of Radio Free Asia. Clark Enterprises, Inc. and Carr Properties own 2025 M Street.

“With the market’s current low levels of tenant demand and abundance of available space, Radio Free Asia chose the perfect time to renew,” Bynum said. “Not only did they renew at a better rate and receive a favorable construction allowance, but the landlord agreed to make space infrastructure modifications to better accommodate the organization.”

The eight-story, 194,624-square-foot office building is located in Washington’s Central Business District. The property is surrounded by restaurants, retail shops and hotels, and is an easy walk to Georgetown, the West End and the Dupont Circle Metro station on the Red Line.
