WASHINGTON, Feb. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — PRP announced today its acquisition of 4900 Seminary Road and 4825 Mark Center Drive in Alexandria, Virginia, from CIII. Built in 1986 and 2000, respectively, the buildings represent a unique opportunity for PRP to provide high-quality office and retail space to value-oriented tenants.

Both buildings are located within the Mark Center submarket, an amenity-rich location that is situated along I-395, and across the street from the Mark Center Transit Center, providing regional and local bus service as well as shuttle service to two nearby Metrorail stations. The location offers approximately 150,000 square feet of walkable retail amenities and is adjacent to the Mark Center Hilton and Conference Center, Alexandria Hospital and Alexandria Community College.

4825 Mark Center Drive comprises 220,000 square feet across eight floors, and features 40′ x 40′ column spacing, 9’6″ finished ceiling heights and expansive 27,000 square foot floorplates.

4900 Seminary Road comprises 200,000 square feet across 12 floors, featuring 18,000 square foot floorplates and abundant parking within an attached garage providing a ratio of four spaces per 1,000 square feet. PRP expects to complete substantial base building renovations at 4900 Seminary Road, which will consist of new elevators, a new HVAC system and upgraded bathrooms, lobbies and common areas so that the building can compete effectively with other assets in the immediate submarket and throughout Northern Virginia.

“We acquired and fully capitalized this transaction to be able to quickly respond to the dynamic office and retail leasing opportunities in Northern Virginia,” stated Paul Dougherty, president of PRP. “We are in discussions with several private sector office and retail tenants whose presence will transform and reinvigorate this submarket of Alexandria.” Upon the completion of the renovations and leasing of both assets, PRP will target LEED status and Energy-Star ratings for both buildings.
