Jamestown Selects JLL to Market Stafford Place in Arlington’s R-B Corridor

WASHINGTON, March 7, 2016 – JLL announced today that it has been hired to lease Jamestown’s Stafford Place, a 771,584-square-foot Class A office complex located in the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor of Arlington, VA.

Jamestown acquired both 99 percent occupied properties in 2015 and will upon NSF’s departure transform the complex with extensive interior renovations, new tenant amenities, system modernizations and exterior streetscape improvements. 

“We see the area as being at an inflection point,” said Michael Phillips, President of Jamestown. “With corporate and more entrepreneurial enterprises taking space among the amenity-rich Ballston submarket, Wilson Boulevard holds tremendous promise as a destination for the new innovation economy and the creative class.”

The complex includes two buildings – the 12-story, a 587,036-square-foot Stafford Place I and the 11-story, 184,548-square-foot Stafford Place II – that were constructed in 1992 and 1999 respectively.  Stafford Place I is connected to the Ballston Metro Station and the soon to be fully redeveloped Ballston Common Mall by way of two-enclosed walking bridges. The office complex also includes two below-grade parking garages and extensive bike parking storage.

The Ballston area features more than 80 restaurants, Quincy Park, the Arlington Arts Center and the Capitals’ Iceplex—all within walking distance of Stafford Place—as well as easy access to the Orange and Silver lines and Washington National Airport.  Ballston is already home to a range of innovative organizations including Accenture, ESI International, Raytheon, The United States Coast Guard, DARPA, Virginia Tech and The Nature Conservancy.

“Jamestown has a reputation for creating and enhancing high profile properties with a deep focus on exceptional retail and workplace experiences such as Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco, Ponce City Market in Atlanta and Chelsea Market in New York City,” said Bob VeShancey, Managing Director, JLL. “They are bringing the same best-in-class real estate philosophy to Stafford Place making creative quality spaces and delivering an outstanding experience that fosters a sense of community.”

Managing Directors Herb Mansinne and Bob VeShancey of JLL will oversee the leasing of Stafford Place.
