Jones Lang LaSalle Markets Class A Office Building in Suburban Seattle

The FAA Building is 100 percent leased to the General Services Administration through 2015

SEATTLE, Mar. 15, 2011–Jones Lang LaSalle announced today the firm has been chosen to market the Class A office property known as The FAA Building for sale in the Seattle submarket of Renton, Washington.  The 199,168-square-foot property is 100 percent leased to the General Services Administration on behalf of the Federal Aviation Administration through July 2015.
Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction are Managing Director Michel Seifer and Senior Vice President Rob Hielscher.  Senior Vice President Marcy Owens Test of the firm’s Public Institutions group will provide federal real estate guidance and assistance, while Real Estate Investment Banking Senior Vice President Reid McGlamery will assist with financing.

“The FAA Building will garner a significant amount of investor interest due to the outstanding income stream security associated with a government-backed tenant,” said Seifer.  “This property is one of the nation’s premier government facilities and one of Puget Sound region’s highest quality office projects as it offers state-of-the-art building systems and technology infrastructure and numerous amenities.”

Designed and developed for the FAA in 1990, the property has been continuously upgraded over the past 20 years to accommodate the ongoing requirements and long-term needs of the FAA.  The building has received an Energy Star rating of 91 and been submitted to the U.S. Green Building Council for LEED-EB Gold certification.  On-site amenities include a stand-alone childcare center, employee fitness center, full-service cafeteria and a federal employee credit union.  Flexible floorplates can easily accommodate future multi-tenant occupancy, and the site offers development potential as well.  The property is located near the intersection of Interstate 405 and State Route 167 (Valley Freeway), one mile east of the intersection of Interstates 5 and 405.
