A commercial real estate colleague and I were having a conversation about the local market lately. Both of us had noticed an uptick in office leasing over the past month particularly the lease up of an office building in the Annapolis Junction Business Park that had been largely vacant for the past two years.
“That indicates to me that things are picking up again,” I suggested.
“We’ll really know that things are picking up when someone signs a lease at 7021 Columbia Gateway Drive,” he replied.
That building has been sitting empty since it was completed in the fall of 2007.
No more. Nucletron, a leader in radiation oncology, has become the buildings first tenant leasing 11,816 square feet.
This isn’t a new company to Columbia or even Columbia Gateway Business Park for that matter. Nucletron, headquartered in the Netherlands, has been in Gateway since 1985.
