Arlington, Va. (March 29, 2012) New Boston Fund, Inc., a private equity real estate investment, development and management firm, announced today that it has leased 18,333 square feet of Class-A office space to Bohler Engineering VA, LLC., a civil and consulting engineering company, at TransDulles Centre in Sterling, Va.

"New Boston is pleased to continue our long-term, successful relationship with Bohler Engineering at the TransDulles Centre," said Pat Shooltz, Senior Vice President and Regional Director of New Boston Fund's Mid-Atlantic region.

Bohler Engineering was represented in this transaction by Cresa's Managing Principals Jeffrey Baker and Thomas Birnbach.

Also at TransDulles Centre, New Boston recently completed a 178,234-square-foot build-to-suit office and manufacturing facility for Rockwell Collins, a worldwide leader in communication and aviation electronics solutions. The building is comprised of 47 percent office and 53 percent laboratory and assembly space, and was honored with an Award of Merit and named, "Best Building, Non-Institutional Facility," at the Best of NAIOP Northern Virginia Awards in November 2011.

TransDulles Centre is located five minutes north of Dulles International Airport in the Route 28 North submarket, and approximately half a mile from the interchange at VA Route 28, the major north/south highway in the region.
