MOI, Inc., a workplace design company that has operated from its offices in the Woodlawn section of Baltimore County since 1997, is relocating its headquarters and about 60 employees to McHenry Row III this fall.

The company signed a lease with 28 Walker Development for 13,284 square feet of space within the five-story, 75,000-square-foot Class A commercial office under construction at 1265 E. Fort Avenue.

“This real estate decision was driven by two important considerations, led by the need to change the physical work space we operate from, and create an environment where we could demonstrate solutions to help clients visualize what is possible when moving or renovating an existing space,” said David Noel, president of MOI, Inc. “We realized that the current location could not adequately represent or address these needs.”

The five-story brick and glass exterior building was designed by Warehaus, the York, Pennsylvania-based architectural company with an office in Baltimore. McHenry Row III is next to a 128-room Marriott Courtyard under construction as well as an existing parking garage that can accommodate more than 600 vehicles.

Last week, Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. announced its intentions to expand into 5,459 square feet of space within the building.  Joe Nolan and David Fritz of NAI KLNB, the exclusive leasing representative for McHenry Row, represented the landlord in this transaction. The tenant was represented by Nicole Miller of Savills Studley.

McHenry Row is a 20-acre mixed-use project currently containing nearly 500 apartment units, 300,000 square feet of commercial office space, and more than 110,000 square feet of retail space, including a Harris Teeter grocery store and restaurants such as Iron Rooster and Samos Greek Island Grill. Diamondback Brewing Company also operates a brewery and taproom on site. The site includes three parking garages that can accommodate more than 1,500 vehicles.

Recent signings at McHenry Row III include Kimley-Horn and Associates and Gross Mendelsohn & Associates. Additional McHenry Row office tenants include Under Armour, Gilbane Construction, Maryland Auto Insurance Fund, Martin-Lauer Associates, Mindgrub, BMC, Videology, GKV and the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

McHenry Row III is now 80 percent preleased.

Established in 1983, MOI had more than $120 million in revenue last year and employs more than 150 people in offices that include Washington, D.C., Richmond and Norfolk, Virginia.  MOI’s custom-designed interiors include flexible work spaces, interactive meeting rooms, huddle areas and quiet spaces featuring DIRTT Environmental Solutions ceilings and modern furniture from Knoll and Kimball Office.
