The U.S. Army wants a 165,000-square-foot property located near Fort Meade, Md. for a new office building, the Baltimore Business Journal reports.
Kevin Litten writes the Army wants 125,00o to 165,000 more square feet of space within 10 miles of Fort Meade.
Litten writes there are no existing vacant buildings that meet the Army’s request but the Corporate Office Properties Trust occupies 137,322 square feet of office space at the National Business Park.
Joseph Nolan, NAI KLNB principal, told the Business Journal the COPT will likely receive the lease because there are only a few properties that will meet the Army’s requirements.
The 165,000-square-foot St. John Properties tract of land in Maple Lawn, Howard County is another potential real estate that might be considered for the contract.
