Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority seeks proposals for undeveloped land
Three prime land parcels — adjacent to Washington Dulles International Airport and representing the largest undeveloped industrial site in Northern Virginia — are on the market.
On behalf of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA), CBRE announced that it is marketing the property and soliciting proposals for its development. According to CBRE, the properties are suitable for data-center or warehouse projects.
“The parcels represent a rare opportunity in the tight data center and logistics market close to Dulles Airport, the new Silver Line Metro Stations and the fast-developing Virginia State Rt. 606-U.S. Route 50 interchange,” Bob Gibbs, executive vice president at CBRE, said in a statement.
The three properties include a 424-acre parcel known as Western Lands, a 68-acre parcel known as Metro 606 and a 160-acre tract known as 606 Frontage.
Western Lands is bounded by Dulles Airport, Beaver Meadow Road, State Route 606 and Carters School Road. Metro 606 is adjacent to the east side of the future Loudoun Gateway Metro station while 606 Frontage is bounded by State Route 606 immediately north of U.S. 50.
“Developing these lands near Dulles International serves two of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s key missions: keeping Dulles competitive so airlines can better serve the traveling public, and promoting economic growth in the National Capital Region,” Airports Authority Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Jerome L. Davis, said in a statement. “Having airport-compatible development in this area makes Dulles a more attractive area for business, which helps the airport and our passengers as well as the broader community.”
Dulles served nearly 22 million passengers and handled more 31 million pounds of cargo in 2016.
