St. John Properties and Greenebaum Enterprises Reveal Plans for 129,000 Square Foot Class “A” Office Building at Maple Lawn
BALTIMORE (January 17, 2014) – St. John Properties, Inc. and Greenebaum Enterprises, Inc. have revealed plans for 8115 Maple Lawn Boulevard, a four-story, 129,000 square foot Class “A” office building located within Maple Lawn, a 600-acre mixed-use business community in Howard County, Maryland. Groundbreaking for the building designed to achieve LEED-certification is scheduled to occur in first quarter 2014, with delivery expected for mid-2015. More than 1.8 million square feet of commercial office space is permitted within Maple Lawn’s commercial districts, in additional to a residential component that can support more than 1,300 housing units. A full-service hotel with conference center is also part of the development program.
St. John Properties and Greenebaum Enterprises formed a joint venture partnership several years ago to develop, lease and manage 300,000 square feet of commercial office and R&D space within Maple Lawn.
8115 Maple Lawn Boulevard will be constructed with a brick and glass exterior and expansive, column-free 30,000 square foot floor plates. The project will feature high-energy HVAC units, energy-efficient motion sensor light fixtures, double pane insulated glass, white TPO roofing membranes and dual-flush toilets. Low VOC paint and adhesives will be utilized in the construction, and storm water runoff will be managed utilizing a state-of-the-art system that minimizes the effect on local waterways.
Located off MD Route 29 in Fulton, MD in the Washington-Baltimore corridor section of Howard County, Maple Lawn is located approximately three miles from Interstate 95 and the Inter-County Connector, twenty minutes from BWI Airport, 22 miles from Baltimore and 30 miles from downtown Washington, D.C.
Maple Lawn is a mixed-use community that contains more than 700,000 square feet of commercial office space, research and development/flex space, plus medical buildings and retail uses in a “Main Street-style” environment. Companies that maintain operations in Maple Lawn include Regus, NewDay USA, Raytheon, Air Patrol Corporation and ELTA North America. The retail component includes merchants such as Harris Teeter, Looney’s Pub, Maple Lawn Market, Ranazul Restaurant, I.M. Wine, Sidamo Coffee & Tea and Coreworks Fitness Studio.
“Maple Lawn is a headquarters-quality location based on its strategic position within the Washington-Baltimore corridor, with immediate access to major highways and close proximity to government agencies and research universities,” stated Rick Williamson, Senior Vice President, Leasing for St. John Properties. “We continue to see a flight-to-quality trend among commercial office space end-users to specify Class ‘A’ office buildings that reflect the high standards of their company. The exceptional construction quality and interior finishes integrated into 8115 Maple Lawn is in keeping with the top-of-line product category we have established within this business community.”
All Maple Lawn buildings are connected via underground conduits which enable tenants with a presence in more than one building to share voice and data systems. The business community includes an on-site fitness center, nearby childcare and numerous dining and shopping amenities.
