Class A office property includes rooftop terrace with 360 degree city views

Washington, D.C. (April 18, 2012) – New Boston Fund, Inc., a private equity real estate investment, development and management firm, announced today that it has acquired 67,000 square feet of leasable office space at 111 K Street NE. New Boston will lease the building to tenants seeking trophy-quality office space in the NoMa/Capitol Hill submarkets of downtown Washington, D.C.

Developed by J Street Companies and completed in 2010, 111 K Street NE is a Class A, 11-story building located at the corner of First and K streets NE. Each floor of the building provides unobstructed, 360 degree window lines and the building’s landscaped rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of the city including the U.S. Capitol Building. The building was built to LEED standards with green features that include a storm water management plan to reduce runoff, a green roof, water conserving plumbing features and recycled building materials.

“New Boston Fund is proud to have acquired this Class A office property that was developed to the highest standards for office properties in downtown Washington, DC,” said Pat Shooltz, Senior Vice President and Regional Director of New Boston Fund’s Mid-Atlantic region. “111 K Street NE will allow New Boston to offer smaller Washington tenants the quality, prominence, views and amenities of a trophy building that are typically only available to much larger tenants in the District.”

111 K Street NE is conveniently located between the New York Avenue Metro Station and Union Station, providing unrivaled access to all of Washington, D.C.’s transportation services. The contemporary, all-glass Gensler-designed structure features 9-foot ceilings, a 3,000-square-foot shared conference center, locker rooms and shower facilities and private, reserved underground parking.

Jud Ryan of Cassidy Turley represented J Street Companies in the sale of the building. New Boston purchased the property as part of New Boston Fund VII and does not disclose acquisition prices.

New Boston has selected Geoffrey M. Kieffer and Andrew T. Wolf of J Street as its agents to lease the property.
