CLARENDON, VA-A new lease and a lease expansion have left the Hartford, a 212,000-sf office and retail building, 85% occupied. Defense contractor By-Light Professional IT Services Inc. signed a new lease for 5,000 sf for its headquarters, which is presently located at 1110 N. Glebe Rd. in Arlington and architectural firm DMJM H&N doubled its 38,500-sf space to 63,000 sf.

The deals account for an aggregate 29,500 sf of newly leased space. Transwestern Commercial Services’ Peter Prominski represented By-Light, while Studley’s Adam Singer and Cushman & Wakefield’s Ness D. Hamaoui represented DMJM. Specifics of the leases are unavailable; but Akridge, which developed the office building with Multi-Employer Property Trust and the accompanying 70-unit condominium building with the Holladay Corp., markets the office space for $32 to $35 per-sf, according to real estate data source Black’s Guide.

Developed at 3101 Wilson Blvd. in the Rosslyn-Baltimore corridor in 2003, the Hartford is also home to consulting firm Greener & Hook, federal contractor Stanley Associates. In the retail section, Italian restaurant Sette Bello and home furnishings store Vesta Home have claimed space.
