One NoMa Station Secures Another New Tenant

Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Moving In

Washington, DC, February 3, 2009 – Bristol Group, Inc. has signed the Department of Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties as a new tenant at One NoMa Station. Thru the General Services Administration, the federal agency has a 5 year lease with a 5 year renewal option for 25,000 square feet on the 6th floor.  With this lease, the building is now approximately 80% leased.


David Alperstein of Jones Lang LaSalle's Government Investor Services group represented the owner, Bristol Group, Inc. of San Francisco, while GSA represented itself in the transaction.
One NoMa Station is a Class-A, six-floor office building with 412,000 square feet.  The building offers views of the U.S. Capitol and other notable Washington, DC landmarks and monuments.


One NoMa Station is located in the NoMa neighborhood, just north of Capitol Hill and Union Station.  The neighborhood offers a retail hub at Union Station, a new Metrorail station at New York and Florida Avenues, and serves as the headquarters for XM Satellite Radio, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.  As one of Washington’s newest business centers, NoMa is home to over 25,000 office workers and tenants like CNN, CareFirst and the National Cable & Telecommunications.  In addition, there is access to various transportation services (Amtrak, MARC and VRE) located at nearby Union Station and highways including I-395, the Beltway (I-495) via Route 50, and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (I-295). 


"It is great to see another Department of Homeland Security group migrating into NoMa, increasing their toe-hold in this exciting neighborhood,” said David Alperstein of Jones Lang LaSalle.  “It proves valued Federal tenants continue to be active in the Washington, D.C. market and can find first-class office space that reconciles with the current financial environment and associated Federal budgetary constraints.”
