Skanska USA Civil will utilize the space to support ongoing, mid-Atlantic-based civil contracts and new pursuits in housing management, estimating, virtual design, and construction and proposal coordinator personnel.

“The rapidly changing Tysons region has been an area of investment for Skanska for many years with the development of projects, such as The Heming at Scott’s Run, and our work on award-winning construction projects, such as The Boro,” Michael Viggiano, Skanska’s executive vice president, told Commercial Observer. “As a suburb of Washington, D.C., it is centrally located to our regional civil infrastructure projects, clients and industry partners.”

The building, situated in the Tysons district, is close to a Metro station and within walking distance to nearby retail and food destinations. 

“The building has covered parking, and a modern vibe and office layout, conducive to the high-performing team atmosphere we enjoy at Skanska,” Viggiano said. 

In the mid-Atlantic region, Skanska has built a variety of transit infrastructure projects, including the First Street Tunnel, 11th Street Bridge and adjacent interchanges, and the Elizabeth River Tunnels project between Norfolk and Portsmouth, Va. It’s also currently working on a track reconstruction project at D.C.’s Union Station, as well as Amtrak‘s Baltimore Penn Station Next Generation High-Speed Rail infrastructure renovations project. 

“Skanska has an extensive and rich history of delivering some of the mid-Atlantic region’s most high-profile, notable and complex civil projects.” Viggiano said. “With our new, dedicated office in Tysons, we can more effectively support Skanska’s civil operations in the region and provide a strong platform for growth.” 

Paul Carney, senior director with Cushman and Wakefield, represented the tenant in the deal. Jerry Kilkenny, vice president of leasing with Brandywine Realty Trust, represented the owner.
