WASHINGTON, D.C., September 23, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has closed the approximately $104.6 million sale of 950 L’Enfant Plaza, a 315,726-square-foot office building overlooking the Southwest Waterfront in Washington, D.C.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Normandy Real Estate Partners. 

Designed by world-renowned architect I.M. Pei, 950 L’Enfant Plaza is a nine-story office building that is currently 86% leased to four GSA tenants.  The property is situated within the larger 2.5 million-square-foot L’Enfant Plaza mixed-use complex that is also home to the International Spy Museum, the Hilton Washington D.C. National Mall and more than 120,000 square feet of retail.  As the southernmost building in the complex, 950 L’Enfant overlooks the Southwest Waterfront with unobstructed views of Hain’s Point, Ronald Reagan National Airport, National Landing and District Wharf, a transformative 3.2 million-square-foot development.  Additionally, 950 L’Enfant Plaza has direct connectivity to the L’Enfant Plaza Metrorail Station, offering tenants access to five of the six Metrorail lines, and is just two blocks from the Virginia Railway Express Station, linking the property to the Virginia suburbs via two rail lines.
