Newmark Making Waves

Washington DC Other

It's already made waves by adding a Who's Who of top office brokers in the past few months. But now Newmark Grubb Knight Frank has one of the region's plum leasing assignments.

This morning, braving the elements (including what appears to be the sun exploding—is everyone ok?) on the rooftop of 1812 N Moore in Rosslyn, we snapped three of NGKFs new additions: Steve Hoffeditz, Brendan Owen, and Ed Clark. (Brendan came over from Vornado last summer, while Steve and Ed just joined from CBRE.) The trio are the new leasing agents for Monday Properties' 1812, as well as 1000 and 1100 Wilson down the street—listings Monday wanted Ed and Steve to continue working on. Steve says that Monday is "the premier type of owner that we all strive to work for."

NGKF previously added former CB tenant rep ace Pat Marr and partners Sally Wilson and Jennifer Ralph late last year, as well as Brendan's former Vornado colleagues George Vogelei and Rafael Notario. The firm's also added two other CB vets: Dan Orcutt handling property management, and Marianne Skorupski leading market research. 

As for the vacant 580k SF 1812 N Moore's leasing prospects, the guys tell us they're bullish on 2014 and say that activity at both 1812 and 1000 Wilson has picked up significantly in the past 60 days. With the building being substantially complete and the $5M renovation of the on-site Rosslyn Metro station also progressing, prospective tenants are finally starting to see 1812's story in person.

Recognize this? This pic in 1812's lobby depicts the building that stood on its site until being demolished in 2008—the former 1815 N Fort Myer Dr. (We love whatever Instagram filter they've used.)
