Amazon Web Services to Lease 270,000 SF in Northern Virginia
HERNDON, VA. — Griffin Capital has signed a 270,000-square-foot office lease with a Fortune 100 company in Herndon. Griffin did not release the name of the tenant, though several media outlets report it is Amazon Web Services. The 12-year lease is expected to commence in April 2020 when Griffin completes renovations at 13820 Sunrise Valley, a 10-story office building. Situated about 25 miles west of downtown Washington, D.C., the office building has been undergoing renovations since 2018 when its previous tenant, Time Warner Communications, consolidated its space and broke its lease. Griffin was able to use the money from Time Warner’s buyout to immediately begin upgrading the building. Furthermore, the property is situated about 20 miles northwest of National Landing, where Amazon’s announced HQ2 will be located.
