Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announced today that is has completed the sale of the 349,303-square-foot Presidential Tower on behalf of Beacon Capital Partners. The building, located at 2511 Jefferson Davis Highway, was purchased by an institutional investor.

Presidential Tower is a Class-A office building in the National Landing submarket of Arlington, Virginia. The asset underwent a significant renovation over the past few years including an expansion and modernization of the main lobby, common corridors and restrooms. It also offers an exceptional amenity package and best-in-class spec suites. The once fully vacant building is currently 95 percent leased, is only two blocks from the Amazon HQ2 site and close to Reagan National Airport and Crystal City Metro Station.

"We saw a tremendous amount of interest in Presidential Tower given its location in National Landing, future home of Amazon's second headquarters," said NKF Executive Managing Director Jud Ryan. "The building offers an exciting opportunity to participate in the submarket's transformation from a government-dependent market to a vibrant, 24/7, tech-focused hub bringing at least 25,000 jobs."

Newmark Knight Frank's Executive Managing Directors Jud Ryan and James Cassidy and Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Robert Griffin facilitated the sale. Vice Chairmen and Co-Heads, Capital Markets Debt & Structured Finance Dustin Stolly and Jordan Roeschlaub along with Vice Chairmen Joe Donato and Maury Zanoff arranged financing.
