Social & Scientific renews lease at Washington Property Company’s Silver Spring Plaza
Social & Scientific Systems has renewed its long-term lease at Washington Property Company’s (WPC) Silver Spring Plaza, a multi-tenant building at 8757 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The public health research company will occupy 88,230 square feet in the 14-story, 242,000 sq ft structure for its corporate headquarters.
Jim Cahill, Joe Judge and Bob Shue of Jones Lang LaSalle represented the tenant in the transaction, while Marc Witowski of WPC represented the owner.
"We made our final decision, in part for economic reasons, but also by listening to the compelling comments of our staff regarding proximity to Metro, restaurants, and other services and commuting distances," says James Lynch, president and chief executive of Social & Scientific Systems. "After working here for more than 11 years, our employees are part of this community, and this was a perspective that was very important to us."
The Social & Scientific Systems lease was the largest of 131,655 sq ft that WPC has leased recently within its 1.8 million sq ft office portfolio spanning the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
