Mirant Mid-Atlantic, LLC, Secures Space at 8301 Professional Place
Advance Realty Group, a leading Northeast US owner and developer of Class A office properties, today announced that it has signed Mirant Mid-Atlantic, LLC, to a 16,015-square-foot, long-term lease at 8301 Professional Place in its Metro East Business Campus in Landover, Maryland.
In this transaction, Ken Fellows, executive vice president of Scheer Partners, represented Advance Realty Group, while Frank Graybeal, first vice president of CB Richard Ellis, represented Mirant Mid-Atlantic, an independent power company that owns and manages power plants, and sells electricity.
“Mirant Mid-Atlantic decided to sell its office building in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and needed to find office space and a landlord that met our immediate needs,” said Laurie Swift, director of procurement and corporate services for Mirant Mid-Atlantic. “The company wanted to remain in Prince George’s County and we knew that the Metro East Business Campus was an excellent location due its proximity to mass transit and major highways.”
David Fisher, senior vice president and regional managing director for Advance’s Washington, D.C., region, added, “Mirant Mid-Atlantic is a great example of the tenants Advance Realty Group has attracted to the suburban D.C. market since it entered the marketplace in 1998. Our success comes from several factors, including our repositioning and substantial capital investments, long-term building ownership, and exceptional reputation for superior on-site management. Our overall philosophy and business driver is to create world-class business environments for existing and future tenants.”
