MCLEAN, VA, March 11, 2009 – Jones Lang LaSalle announced today that it represented Hilton Hotels Corporation (Hilton) in the signing of a 10-year lease for office space at Park Place II, located in McLean, Virginia.  As previously announced, Hilton will relocate its global headquarters from Beverly Hills, CA, to Fairfax County, VA, during the third quarter of 2009.

Hilton’s global headquarters will occupy approximately one-third of the 11-story 323,000 square foot building located at 7930 Jones Branch Drive. Park Place II was completed in 2008 and is owned by the B.F.
