Lincoln Property Company Announces a New Office Experience at 4300 Wilson in Ballston
Arlington, VA August 20, 2020 – The Pinkard Group, PGIM Real Estate and Lincoln Property Company are proud to kick-off the transformational renovations at 4300 Wilson. The market leading repositioning will create a hospitality-focused experience not available in the market. Working with design firm Gensler, 4300 Wilson’s lobby, and common areas will be reimagined to meet the demands of the modern workforce. Significant renovations are underway which include a new streetscape and entryway, revamped lobby, as well as the addition of a two-story amenity offering including a tenant lounge, conference area, and state-of-the-art fitness facility.
4300 Wilson is located on one of the most prominent sites in the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor of Northern Virginia. The 11-story green building features 270,000 square-feet of Class A office space inclusive of 20,000 square-feet of ground level retail facing the intersection of Wilson Boulevard and North Glebe Road.
Built in 2003, 4300 Wilson offers tenants expansive floor plates with generous column spacing, ample underground parking and access to the Ballston Metro and major Metro bus transfer stations as well as a direct connection to the new Ballston Quarter retail complex anchoring the transformation of the area.
As bustling activity from Ballston Quarter surrounds 4300 Wilson, the renovation of the exterior entryway will extend a glass vestibule out towards the property line to capture the attention of pedestrians and visitors.
Highlighting the lobby renovation will be an architectural design feature born from WOOD-SKIN, a technology that transforms everyday, rigid materials into flexible, 3D functional art. WOOD-SKIN will be incorporated as the focal point in the main lobby, even serving as the canopy outside the vestibule. It will extend throughout the ground floor leading visitors from the entry to the new common spaces.
“In designing the lobby, our focus centered around one main theme: creating an engaging experience that entices and delights users during their visit to the building,” said Mariela Buendia-Corrochano, principal and design director with Gensler. “The warmth of the woodskin is designed to draw people into the building.”
Following the renovation, the building will offer 6,000+ square feet of common space designed to provide an urban retreat for the building’s tenants. The renovation coincides with the opening of Ballston’s newest restaurant, World of Beer, complementing the existing retail amenity base.
“The new lobby and amenity renovations at 4300 Wilson Boulevard will set the building apart from the rest of the market”, said Doug McLearn, Director of Virginia leasing at Lincoln Property Company. “The innovative design will unquestionably be one of the highest-quality renovations in Arlington. Combined with the building’s existing column free floor plates, high ceilings and exceptional location, there is nothing left to be desired in an office building. We are excited to bring this dramatically re-designed office building to market.”
Renovations are scheduled to deliver in the first quarter of 2021.
Currently, there is 75,000 square-feet of office space ranging from 2,663 – 70,000 square-feet available. Neil Alt, Doug McLearn, and Brenda Sosa of Lincoln Property Company have been retained to lease the property.
