22 CityLink Expands Gramercy District, Opening One Year Earlier
Gramercy District adds adjacent development to expand the main campus
CHANTILLY, Va., Mar. 8, 2017 — 22 CityLink announced on Wednesday that it
reached an agreement with an adjacent land owner, Ashburn 2005 LLC, to become part of the Gramercy District campus. The additional 8.15 acres, now named Gramercy District West Campus or “Gramercy West,” will expand Gramercy District to over 24 acres.
“We are thrilled to support 22 CityLink’s efforts in accelerating business growth and bringing high-tech jobs to Loudoun County. We like that they are addressing the education and training needed to fulfill 21st-century jobs,” said David Gregory, managing partner of Ashburn 2005.
Ashburn 2005’s planned development includes a parking structure and a mixed-use building of retail and office space, scheduled to be completed in late 2018. 22 CityLink will utilize this building to open Gramercy District for office tenants one year earlier than originally planned.
“Ashburn 2005 has given us the ability to accelerate Gramercy District faster than we thought possible,” said Minh Le, managing partner of 22 CityLink. “This project is exciting. We’ve been meeting with representatives from across the U.S. and around the world to join our community at Gramercy District. Through our collaboration, Gramercy West can satisfy the demand and provide the opportunity for additional growth.”
Gramercy District is the first ground-up smart city in the United States, located in the Washington, D.C. area. The focus for this smart city is to create an “Innovation Campus” – an ecosystem meant to promote and accelerate innovation.
