NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., July 26, 2021—Peterson Companies is one of the largest privately-owned real estate development companies in the D.C. region. It is also the visionary developer behind one of Maryland’s and Prince George’s County’s crown jewels and Washington D.C.’s most unique landmarks—National Harbor. Peterson Companies just announced the availability of two unique corporate headquarters sites at National Harbor.
“As one of the largest mixed-use developments in Prince George’s County, Maryland, National Harbor has been a game changer in driving employment and economic growth for the region for more than a decade. This thriving 300-acre office, retail and residential community also ranks at the top for meeting and convention space, entertainment and recreation,” said Jon M. Peterson, chief executive officer, Peterson Companies.
Both sites are fully entitled and each features more than one million square feet of top-tier headquarters/corporate campus space. These sites are unique in that they overlook the historic Potomac River with immediate access to major local and national arteries—I-95, I-495 and I-295. They offer quick access to Washington, D.C. including Capitol Hill. With extensive bus and water taxi services, the site has been identified for a future Metro rail station as well. One national and two international airports are within 15 to 45 minutes and Amtrak stations are minutes away.
The first site is in the bustling urban Waterfront District at National Harbor adjacent to Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. It offers 1.245M sq. ft. of office space, 580,000 sq. ft. of residential, 70,000 sq. ft. of retail and 150,000 sq. ft. of hotel space. Located in a pedestrian-friendly environment with bike and walking trails and first-class amenities, this parcel offers 3,370 secure, underground parking spaces. The second site is adjacent to MGM National Harbor and sits on the Capital Beltway (I-495) with exceptional visibility. It offers 720,000 sq. ft. of office in two towers, 210,000 sq. ft. of hotel and 190,000 sq. ft. of residential. With first-class amenities, visibility and signage opportunities, the site also offers 2,360 secure, underground parking spaces. Both sites are available, however only one will be developed.
“There is nothing in the Mid-Atlantic that offers the visibility, accessibility, setting, flexibility and is as ‘quick to market’ as these two sites,” said William C. Smith, president, commercial development for Peterson Companies. “Having the zoning already completed is a significant step,” Smith added. “This can save companies a year or more of approvals. With this flexible zoning, these buildings are able to combine many functions – all under one roof.”
Known for its food, art, retail, entertainment and waterfront activities, National Harbor, now in its 14th year, is a thriving, vibrant community. With more than 30 restaurants, eight hotels, 100 shops including Tanger Outlets, it is also home to more than 2,000 residents. As one of the Washington, D.C. region’s prime destinations, National Harbor hosts more than 28 million visitors annually.
The Washington, D.C. region is one of the most-educated metropolitan regions in the U.S. with talent across biotech, cybersecurity, and aerospace. Home to University of Maryland, George Mason University and other leading educational institutions, corporations and organizations are realizing the value of the Capital region as evidenced with Amazon’s new HQ2.
“National Harbor is a crown jewel,” said Smith. “It provides the perfect location for a company considering relocation, consolidation or expansion. It checks all the boxes.”
