More Office Building Coming to Kingstowne

From Kingstowne Patch Besides the empty office building across from Kohl's that will be finished in June, there are even more office buildings coming to the Kingstowne area. According to its website, The Halle Companies — which also owns parts of Kingstowne Towne Center — plans to build a Kingstowne Towne Center Office and Retail building to be located at 5931 Kingstowne Village Parkway and 5951 Kingstowne Village Parkway. The project will include four office towers totaling 1,200,000 sq. ft of office space with an additional 30,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The Halle Companies was not interested in speaking with Patch about the plans for the project. The Halle Companies' empty office building located at 5650 King Centre Drive is currently generating interest but doesn't have any confirmed tenants and this may be due to the issues surrounding sequestration, said David Stoudt with Jones Lang LaSalle. "The issue with sequestration is crippling the entire region from a government contracting standpoint," Stoudt said in a phone interview last week. Over on Beulah Street, a three-story office building is going up and is expected to be completed in June. The 36,000 sq. ft. of LEED Silver certified space — owned by Beulah Street II, LLC — is being developed as a new corporate headquarters for the primary tenant NES Associates, according to a recent L.F. Jennings news release. Additional design themes focus on alternative methods of transportation. Beulah Street II will provide tenants with electric car-charging stations and a bicycle storage building.
