SILVER SPRING, MD-There is no room left on the tenant roster at 8737 Colesville Rd. now that Danya International Inc. has renewed and expanded its lease at the 123,400-sf office building. The health and human services consulting firm extended its lease on 14,000 sf while tacking on an additional 20,000 sf, bringing its total occupancy to about 34,000 sf.

The financial details of Danya’s lease with property owner Atlantic Realty, which acquired the building in 2000 for $14.1 million, have not been disclosed. Atlantic’s Carl B. Taylor represented the ownership, while the Ezra Co.’s Glenn Meltzer and Todd Sherbacow stood in for the tenant.

Located off Rte. 97, the 12-story building at 8737 Colesville Rd. was developed in 1987. Danya’s lease, and recent commitments to space by other companies–including the Koba Institute, and firms Dietzel, Butler & Associates LLC and Cortina & Lenkerd–have left the property fully occupied. “Business leaders recognize that downtown Silver Spring is now a vibrant, dynamic market that offers a great location and excellent value,” says Atlantic Realty partner David A. Ross. “Vacancy is fast approaching 8%, down from 18% in 2002, as more tenants become aware of the leasing opportunities Silver Spring offers.”
