COLUMBIA, MD-Lurgi Lentjes North America Inc. has taken another step to make room for its rapidly expanding business with the recent leasing of more than 1,800 sf of office space to supplement its approximately 24,100-sf corporate headquarters in the Columbia Gateway business community. The manufacturer of air pollution controls and power plant equipment now boasts a 26,900-sf presence in the park. Aside from a small space containing a deli, Lurgi Lentjes now occupies all of 6724 Alexander Bell Dr. The two-story building is a class A structure totaling about 30,850 sf.

“These leases are a great commitment to the Columbia market,” Manekin LLC senior vice president of sales and leasing Sharon Caplan says. Manekin represented Lurgi Lentjes in the transaction, while Corporate Office Properties Trust represented the building owner, COPT Gate 6700-6708-6724 LLC. Since establishing its first US office in April of 2001, Lurgi Lentjes has since grown ten-fold, from 4 employees to 40. The terms of the lease have not been disclosed.
