New MOB is planned for National Harbor mixed-use area near Washington, D.C.
By John B. Mugford
After hearing from a number of physician practices wanting new space in the new National Harbor mixed-use area down the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., Dallas-based Trammell Crow Company is answering the call.
The company, which also has a D.C.-area office, recently announced plans for a 93,000 square foot medical office building (MOB) in the National Harbor area in Prince George’s County, Md., across the river from Alexandria, Va.
The relatively new mixed-use area, on the site of the former Salubria Plantation built in 1827, includes more than 150 shops and boutiques and more than 30 dining locations, as well as hotels, residences and entertainment options.
Plans call for building the MOB on a 1-acre site that Trammell Crow has under contract from National Harbor developer Oxon Hill, Md.-based Peterson Cos., Trammell Crow Senior VP Trevor Vietor told the Washington Business Journal.
The Medical Pavilion at National Harbor will be located at the intersection of St. George and National Harbor boulevards, next to the The Esplanade apartment complex.
One of the latest projects announced for National Harbor is a $1.3 billion Las Vegas-style casino to be operated by MGM Resorts International.
According to Mr. Vietor, Trammell Crow pursued the location after being approached by several doctor groups that wanted to set up shop in the National Harbor area near the new MGM casino.
“It’s really been an underserved area of the county,” Mr. Vietor told the Business Journal. “There is pent-up demand.”
According to the business publication, Trammell Crow is in discussions with a number of medical systems and practices for space in the building. A local office of Los Angeles-based CBRE Group Inc. (NYSE: CBG), is providing leasing services for the future MOB.
The leasing agents are reportedly in negotiations for more than 60 percent of the rentable space in the building.
The new MOB should be completed by fall 2018, according to the company.
Trammell Crow has yet to provide further details concerning the project. For more on its proposal, however, please visit: BizJournals.com.
