Peraton Inc., a Reston, Virginia-based national security company with offices across the country, has signed a lease with St. John Properties Inc. for 18,102 square feet of space within Melford Town Center in Prince George’s County.
Peraton intends to relocate its global health and financial solutions sector headquarters from McLean, Virginia to the 466-acre mixed-use business community by late fall. Bill Jautze of St. John Properties represented the landlord and Daniel Rasmussen of Cushman & Wakefield represented the client in this transaction.
Peraton will occupy 16901 Melford Blvd., a four-story building containing 150,000 square feet of Class ‘A’ commercial offices space. With 18,000 employees worldwide, Peraton delivers trusted and highly differentiated national security solutions and technologies that keep people safe and secure. The company serves as a valued partner to essential government agencies across the intelligence, space, cyber, defense, citizen security, health and state and local markets.
Featuring an exterior constructed of full-length ribbon windows, 16901 Melford Boulevard earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for satisfying green and sustainable requirements in the construction of the building’s core and shell. Design features include systems to reduce water and energy usage, enhanced daylighting and the use of building materials to help promote the health and well-being of tenants.
