Hogan Lovells to move its Northern Virginia office to Boro Tower
- July 19, 2017
Hogan Lovells plans to move its Northern Virginia office to Boro Tower, a new 20-story office tower under construction at The Boro in Tysons.
The Meridian Group, which is developing The Boro, said Hogan Lovells, a global law firm with more than 45 offices, will lease 44,500 square feet starting in June 2019. The firm will occupy the tower’s entire 17th floor and half of its 16th floor.
The law firm currently has its offices at Park Place II at 7930 Jones Branch Drive in McLean. About 70 attorneys and staff will be moving to Boro Tower.
The Boro will be a Metro-oriented, mixed-use destination. Located within walking distance of the Greensboro Metro station, the 15-acre development will include a mix of office, rental and for-sale residential, retail, entertainment and open park space.
The Boro’s dramatic 1.7 million-square-foot first phase, expected to be completed in 2019, will include nearly 700 residential units, 260,000 square feet of retail space in addition to Hogan Lovells’ new home in Boro Tower.
At full build-out, The Boro is planned to feature more than 1,500 residential units and 1.8 million square feet of office space, 316,000 square feet of retail space and 250,000 square feet of hotel space.
Hogan Lovells is the second major tenant to select Boro Tower for its new offices. In June, Tegna announced it is moving its headquarters to the top three floors of Boro Tower, leasing approximately 46,000 square feet. Tegna will relocate from 7950 Jones Branch Drive in McLean.
In the law firm lease, The Meridian Group, which is based in Bethesda, Md., was represented by Rob Faktorow and Terry Reiley of CBRE. Hogan Lovells was represented by Rick Rome and Alexandra deVilliers of Savills-Studley.
