JLL, a professional services firm that specializes in real estate and investment management, has announced new details in the leasing and redevelopment of the Fort Washington Technology Center at 1100 Virginia Drive in Fort Washington.

Spanning 660,000 square feet, the property, owned by Somerset Properties, is the largest multi-tenant office building in the Philadelphia suburbs.

In October 2017, AON Affinity will begin a 12-year lease for 77,000 square feet, kicking off the redevelopment of a 227,000-square-foot portion of the building. Upon completion, 150,000 square feet of leasable space will remain.

Steering away from the traditional image of a call center, the FWTC is marked by sweeping 16 foot ceilings, 1.5 acres of green space, an open, continuous floor plan, and a tech lounge offering flexible workspace with a green wall. The building also offers a 600-seat cafeteria, Starbucks café, fitness center, and dual feed electric, vital to technology and data centers because it ensures uninterrupted power.

“Fort Washington is transforming, making significant improvements to streetscapes and parks,” said Mike MacCrory, JLL Senior Vice President. “JLL is seeing that translate into office leasing demand, with absorption and prices both on the rise.”
