Law Firm Relocates to DC’s Navy Yard


Law firm GrayRobinson has signed a 4,000-square-foot lease at Skanska’s 99 M Street, SE, a Class A building in Washington D.C.’s Capitol Riverfront submarket, Commercial Observer has learned.  

The full-service law and lobbying firm will move from its current office at 439 New Jersey Avenue, SE to the 11-story, spec boutique building in early 2020.

“[The property] offers adequate office space for the growing firm as they expand their presence in D.C.,” said Ken Biberaj, managing director at Savills, who represented the tenant in the deal. “The location is convenient for the lobbying firm as it’s in close proximity to Capitol Hill and in the attractive Navy Yard neighborhood with an array of amenities.”

According to Biberaj, the area is experiencing a tight office market with low availability, and this deal provides the law firm a chance to occupy a trophy workspace at a top-tier location. Amenities in the building include a 4,750-square-foot green rooftop terrace, fitness center and a bike room.

“We’re thrilled to move into the space in Navy Yard,” Doyle Bartlett, GrayRobinson’s managing director, said in prepared remarks. “The space will bring even more vibrancy and energy to the GrayRobinson team as we help our clients achieve their goals.”

Lincoln Property Company’s Senior Vice President Adam Biberaj handled things for landlord Skanska.
