The 899 and 999 North Capital sites each house a nine-story office with a combined 609,540 square feet of space, a majority of which is leased to the D.C. government, according to CIM’s website. The 999 North Capitol property received upgrades in 2011 to the main lobby, corridors, restrooms, elevator and building systems.

The 901 North Capital site is comprised of land. Before the sale, Washington D.C.-based Akridge agreed to develop a 12-story, 250,000-square-foot office building on the site on behalf of CIM, according to Akridge’s website. The property will be Union Square’s final office building.
