Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) today announced that Penzance has completed two retail leases with leading early education and preschool provider Bright Horizons at 2000 N. 14th Street and 4001 N. Fairfax Drive.
Bright Horizons at Courthouse Station, located at 2000 N. 14th Street, opened February 4, 2019 and is proximate to the Arlington Courthouse. The center occupies 13,000 square feet and serves children ages six weeks through five years. Highlights include a dedicated outdoor playground, indoor movement zone for daily physical activity and a catered lunch option.
A lease was also signed for a second location in Ballston at 4001 N. Fairfax Drive. That center is in the early phases of construction and is tentatively scheduled to open in 2020. Plans for the Ballston Bright Horizons include a 4,700-square-foot playground.
NKF Executive Managing Director Andy Klaff and Managing Director Jeff Tarae represented Penzance in the two transactions. Bright Horizons was represented by Connor Faught of Colliers International.
“Bright Horizons is a premier early education provider and expanding its presence in Arlington fills a void for young families looking for quality child care options,” said Tarae. “We were thrilled to work with Penzance on lease negotiations for the two new optimally located Bright Horizons locations.”

Penzance has a history of utilizing creative strategies to maximize value and drive NOI growth.
