BETHESDA, MD—First Potomac Realty Trust has leased space to one tenant in two of its Virginia properties. The new tenant, a Fortune 100 defense contractor, has picked up 40,000 sf of space at 2000 Gateway Blvd. in Hampton and 33,000 sf at 1408 Stephanie Way in Chesapeake.

The Gateway Blvd property is a 421,100-sf office/warehouse property located on 37 acres near I-64. The facility at Stephanie Way is a 51,209-sf flex/office property located on 3.9 acres in Greenbrier/Crossways.

According to a statement by Skip Dawson, First Potomac’s chief operating officer, First Potomac originally acquired these facilities when they were vacant. Now, he says, 1408 Stephanie Way is 65% leased, and there is momentum developing at 2000 Gateway Blvd. as well. “We are very pleased with the leasing velocity we are experiencing throughout our portfolio,” Dawson said.

First Potomac acquired 1408 Stephanie Way in May for $5.1 million from First Data Resources Inc. It acquired 2000 Gateway in October 2005 for $14 million. The company had experienced a setback with the Gateway facility this September, when it announced that Northrop Grumman Systems Corp. had terminated its contingent lease there because it did not win a US Air Force contract.

First Potomac says that the tenant will move into Stephanie Way by year end. Next spring it will occupy 2000 Gateway Blvd.
