WASHINGTON, DC-With Mark Winkler Cos.’ recent closing of the $44-million purchase of the former MCI Communications headquarters at 1801 Pennsylvania Ave., Cushman & Wakefield has been named the exclusive leasing company for the 13-story office building. Located at the corner of 18th Street, one block from the Farragut West Metro stop, it is the single largest block of class A space available on Pennsylvania Avenue and offers 175,000 sf of rentable space, according to C&W.

WorldCom, which owned the property after acquiring MCI in 1998, moved to a new campus in Loudoun County. The building, which features two separate entrances and exits to a parking garage, had been vacant for the past few months as the last of MCI’s employees moved to the new offices.

Winkler had the property under contract since September, and is the Alexandria, VA-based company’s first wholly owned office space in Washington, DC. The purchase price works out to $220 per sf.
