WASHINGTON, DC-NoMa office Capitol Plaza I, owned by an affiliate of the Polinger Co., which has been vacant since its delivery in Nov. 2006, has just added two tenants to occupy a total of 44,660 sf.

The US Department of Homeland Security leased 34,773 sf, taking the entire second floor and part of the third floor. Point Carbon, a private sector environment firm based in Oslo, Norway, has leased 9,887 sf on the third floor. Point Carbon already has an office in the District; it will be relocating its operations to Capitol Plaza I. Both plan to occupy their new space in Nov. 2008.

Joe Michel of CB Richard Ellis represented the landlord in both lease transactions. Located at 1200 First St. NE, Capitol Plaza I was acquired from a partnership that included Stephen A. Goldberg in April 2007 for $94.5 million. The asking rate for the remaining space is in the mid-$40s per sf, full service, Michel tells GlobeSt.com.

Despite the year-long wait to lease tenants in Capitol Plaza I, NoMa is picking up in activity since the Department of Justice announced it would lease 521,000-sf in the submarket earlier this year. National Public Radio acquisition of 1111 N. Capitol St. from J Street Development at the same time placed NoMa’s on the non-profit sector’s radar.
