WASHINGTON, DC- RTKL Associates has inked a lease with Vornado/Charles E. Smith to occupy 63,403 sf at 2101 L St., a newly developed 379,388-sf office building in the CBD. RTKL is close to doubling its current space at 1250 Connecticut Ave.

Its new lease, negotiated by Studley, also gives the firm first rights to 86,000 sf in the building as it becomes available. Studley’s Laurent Myers, Adam Singer, Demetri Koutrouvelis and Ryan Nunes represented RTKL. Randy Lennon, Brendan Owen and Mathew Gannon represented Vornado/Charles E. Smith in house.

The asking rate for the building was $37.50 per sf triple net, or $55 per sf, full service when Studley began negotiating the lease, Myers tells GlobeSt.com. The deal closed earlier this month. RTKL will be pursuing the highest rating it can achieve under LEED CI, he adds.

2101 L St. has just been redeveloped with a new exterior facade, a new lobby, new building systems, new interior spaces and a new retail streetscape. RTKL will have 300 employees occupying the second and third floors. This new lease brings the building almost to full occupancy, Myers says, except for a few pockets of space on some of the floors. Other tenants in the building are Greenberg Traurig, the US Green Building Council and the American Insurance Association.
