STG is relocating from an 86,000-square-foot sublet at PlazaAmerica, also in Reston. However the move is not an expansion sincethe company is also consolidating another division into this newspace, Amason tells GlobeSt.com.

|

STG’s sublease was due to expire in December 2011, but it optedto go to market early to take advantage of the stilltenant-friendly conditions. Amason calls the lease a “classicexample of a flight to quality during an economic retreat.”

|

For Reston, STG’s consolidation comes as the submarket strugglesto increase occupancy after losing several large tenants. Chiefamong these has been National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, whichis moving operations to Ft. Belvoir and likely taking severalgovernment contractors with it who wish to stay close to theagency.
