RESTON, VA-Company employees, business leaders and a member of Congress came out to celebrate the official opening of the 240,000-sf Sallie Mae headquarters at 12061 Bluemont Way. The education funding provider’s new home, which cost $42 million to develop, will allow it to consolidate 700 of its area employees under one roof.

Designed by Boggs & Partners Architects Inc., the headquarters building features an exterior glass staircase and an underground parking structure to accommodate up to 700 vehicles. The structure was designed to reflect, symbolically, the importance of Sallie Mae’s mission.

“What the company does inside that building is enable seven million students to go to college; it is such an incubator of achievement for students in this country to succeed,” Boggs & Partners’ Joseph Boggs tells “Our goal was to design a building that reflects in its architecture the diversity, outreach and inclusion that the company promotes.”
