Barbara Bush Foundation Heads for New Space at The Herald in DC
Marx Realty has welcomed the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy and two additional new leasors to the newly repositioned The Herald in Washington, DC. The foundation signed a seven-year, 6,000-square-foot office lease on the seventh floor of the building on New York Avenue.
Scott Circle Communications signed a five-year, 3,200-square-foot office lease for one of the building’s pre-built suites on the seventh floor of the building, while an unnamed economic think tank signed a seven-year, 7,000-square-foot lease on the fifth floor.
Marx Realty was represented by Doug Mueller, Evan Behr, Nathan Beach and Jeanette Ko of JLL; Scott Circle Communications was represented by Creighton Armstrong and Lauren Thomas of JLL; and the Barbara Bush Foundation was represented by Chris Lucey and Doug Damron of Newmark.
Marx Realty recently completed a $41 million hospitality-themed transformation of The Herald to combine a hotel-like ambiance with a New York club-like vibe and sophisticated DC design sensibility.
