(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that it has retained HFF to market for sale 1200 Nineteenth Street, a well-located, trophy-class office building in downtown Washington, D.C.

The building is 86 percent leased to tenants including: McKinsey & Company, Inc., USA; Squire Sanders, LLP; Navigant Consulting, Inc.; Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice PLLC; and MOI, Inc.

The building is being marketed on behalf of the owner, the Hines U.S. Core Office Fund.

“We are proud of the redevelopment efforts that were made at 1200 Nineteenth and continue to believe in the strength and stability of the downtown D.C. office market,” said Hines Senior Managing Director Bill Alsup.

1200 Nineteenth Street, designed by SmithGroup, is an 11-story 334,000-square-foot free-standing office building with four sides of floor-to-ceiling glass, efficient floor plates, and a trophy amenity package.

In addition to the office tenancy, the building includes 23,000 square feet of retail space that is fully leased to restaurants and a fashion retailer. The building is located at the intersection of Nineteenth and M streets in downtown Washington, close to Connecticut Avenue and K Street and a short walk from three Metro stations.
