CHANTILLY, VA-Construction has gotten under way on the three-building Manekin @ Dulles South flex/industrial complex with new owners for the new single-story structures already in place. With the help of Transwestern Commercial Services, developer Manekin LLC was able to sell the buildings for a total of $12 million in advance of development.Manekin @ Dulles South occupies a 12-acre parcel off Route 50 in Fairfax County’s I-495 corridor. The three structures–designated as Building A, B, and C–account for 58,000 sf, 46,000 sf and 36,000 sf, respectively. About five companies bought up space in Building A, which is scheduled for delivery in August.
