VIENNA, VA. – Transwestern today announced it completed an 11-year lease with Harris Corp. for 161,359 square feet in Arboretum II in Herndon, Va. The international communications and information technology company will consolidate several area offices into Arboretum II’s North Building at 2235 Monroe St., bringing it to 97 percent leased. Harris selected Arboretum II for its technical infrastructure, 90 percent of which is classified as a Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF).

In addition, Lockheed Martin, a global security and aerospace company, signed a 13-month lease renewal for 161,359 square feet in the property’s South Building, located at 2245 Monroe St. Lockheed Martin remains the sole occupant of the 100 percent leased South Building.

Transwestern’s Senior Vice Presidents Matt Bundy and Josh Masi represented the owner in both transactions. Mike Wiley and Junius Tillery with DTZ Americas, Inc. represented Harris Corp. while Matt Sonne with Jones Lang LaSalle represented Lockheed Martin.

“Arboretum II combines a highly secure and technical infrastructure with extensive on-site and proximate amenities,” said Bundy.

The North and South buildings of Arboretum II are six-story Class A office buildings constructed in 2002. The buildings offer tenants a three-level parking garage, walking trails, signage opportunity along the Dulles Toll Road and views of Sunrise Valley Park. The property is conveniently located near the Dulles Toll Road, Fairfax County Parkway, Route 28 and Dulles International Airport.
