Wheelock Street Capital and Lincoln Property Company announced that The Alzheimer’s Association has signed a 5,790 square-foot lease at National Gateway II, located at 3550 South Clark Street (https://thenationalgateway.com/). The building is in DC’s fastest-growing neighborhood of National Landing, adjacent to Virginia Tech’s Innovation Campus in Potomac Yard, and directly south of Amazon’s HQ2.
“The Alzheimer’s Association is excited to be one of the pioneering tenants at National Gateway. This location is central to the National Capital Area Chapter’s territory and presents a unique opportunity for us to expand outreach throughout the region as we continue to provide information, care, and support to those who face the daily challenges of Alzheimer’s. The amenities and modern infrastructure will enhance our working environment and provide our staff and volunteers the resources needed to build and sustain meaningful and productive relationships with key stakeholders and the greater community who share our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia,” said Kate Rooper, President and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter and Region Lead for Virginia, Maryland,and DC.
Wheelock Street Capital completed a multi-million dollar repositioning effort at National Gateway II in 2022, delivering a tenant lounge and conference center, secured bike parking with dedicated men’s and women’s locker rooms, an upgraded lobby, and an outdoor courtyard plaza fully furnished with patio seating. On-site parking is provided via a structured parking deck with direct vertical access to the building as well as immediate on-site access to the area’s Bus Rapid Transit System, a circulator that runs every six minutes to the Crystal City Metro Station. Additional on-site amenities include a 46,000-square-foot LA Fitness, Bright Horizon’s early education and pre-school facility, a Lidl Express Grocery Store, and Kaldi’s Social House (https://kaldissocial.com), a 2,600 square-foot coffee shop and restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, that is slated to open in early 2024.
“We are thrilled to welcome The Alzheimer’s Association, the world’s leader in funding for Alzheimer’s research, care, and advocacy, to National Gateway II. Their addition is another exciting step in the evolution and growth of our building and the broader National Landing submarket,” said Mike Eves, Senior Vice President of Asset Management with Wheelock Street Capital.
