Mayer Brown Enters Long Term Lease for Washington, DC HQ

Washington Business Journal - October 16, 2007

Mayer Brown LP will move its headquarters to 1999 K St. NW, the Helmut Jahn-designed building currently under construction. The law firm, signed a 15-year lease on Tuesday, to occupy all of the building's office space -- 243,000 square feet -- as part of a consolidation and expansion of its D.C. operations. Mayer Brown expects to have 250 lawyers move into the space in the third quarter of 2009.

Mayer Brown began looking for space about 15 months ago. It wanted to consolidate its operations at 1909 K St. NW and Lafayette Center. The law firm was in late-stage negotiations to occupy about 245,000 square feet of space at 1000 Connecticut Ave. NW, which is to be redeveloped, but officials changed their minds.

Vornado/Charles E. Smith tore down the older office building at the corner of 20th and K streets to build a trophy space on that corridor. The company had started construction with no preleases signed. Sphere: Related Content
