ROCKVILLE, MD-Co-developers Lerner Enterprises and the Tower Cos. will be among the tenants occupying the 190,000-sf 2000 Tower Oaks Blvd. in Rockville, Md. when it delivers in mid-2008.

“The top three floors are already leased,” Jeffrey K. Diamond, principal of Diamond Property Co., he tells, “and leases are pending for the first two-and-a-half floors, leaving part of the third floor, and all of four, five and six available.” A financial services firm also has preleased space in the building in a plan to fill the first two floors. The latest count shows the class A product is 60% preleased.The project’s leasing agent says space is renting for $42 per sf to $45 per sf. Construction is expected to begin this summer. The 2000 Tower Oaks Boulevard is a LEED-certified building, designed with heightened efficiencies for air quality, recyclable content, energy and water usage.

Diamond says he is involved with two other LEED-certified buildings in the Washington, DC area, both of which are being developed by Lerner Enterprises: 20 M Street SE and 1775 Tysons Blvd. in McLean, VA. “There is growing demand for this kind of space,” he says. “I think it will be the wave of future development for office buildings.”
