WASHINGTON, DC-CityCenterDC developers have inked a lease with Covington & Burling LLP for the law firm to take 420,000 square feet at the mixed-use development project underway in Downtown DC. The parties signed a letter of intent for the lease earlier this year. With the Covington lease in hand, the office buildings, One and Two CityCenter, are now more than 80% pre-leased, according to the project’s developers, Hines, Archstone and the TFI US Real Estate Fund.

Covington is moving into its new space in the summer of 2014. The lease will run 20 years, during which time Covington will have options to expand. Thomas Fulcher and Arthur Greenberg with Studley and Debra Lehman-Smith and James McLeish with Lehman Smith McLeish advised Covington on the lease. Construction on Phase 1 of the 10-acre project began in March 2011 and parts of it are close to topping out.
