St. John Properties Rebrands Frederick County Area Business Community to Westview Business Park
FREDERICK, MD (August 3, 2012) – St. John Properties, Inc. has announced the re-branding of its nine-building business park located at the intersection of Interstate 270 and MD Route 85 (Buckeystown Pike) at Pegasus Court in Frederick, MD. Now known as the Westview Business Park, the 49-acre business community presently consists of 427,000 square feet of multi-tenanted R&D/office/flex buildings in a corporate campus with an additional six acres of developable land directly along MD Route 85. The park was previously referred to as the Center at Monocacy.
“We believe the project’s new identity of the Westview Business Park more accurately reflects its prominence as an original anchor of the greater Westview area of Frederick,” explained Matt Holbrook, Regional Partner for St. John Properties, Inc. “In addition, our tenants more closely align themselves with the Westview area, which is widely recognized as the ideal place to work, conduct business and shop.”
The business community has successfully attracted a number of new companies within the past year, including Apex Diagnostics, Gemini Corporation, the National Society of Public Surveyors, CBIZ, Kemp Bio and Performance Automatic. A strong trend of firms relocating from the Montgomery County region to the Frederick County metropolitan area has also emerged.
“The Westview area is considered one of Frederick’s prominent business corridors, given its strategic position near I-270, the availability of a diversity of amenities and the tremendous mix of office, R&D and industrial users that have located to the region,” Holbrook added. “Our park’s new association with the Westview name will provide tangible and meaningful benefits for current and future tenants.”
St. John Properties, Inc., founded in 1971, owns and has developed more than 17 million square feet of R&D/flex, office, retail and warehouse space in Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. For more information about the company, visit www.sjpi.com.
