Looking for office space
November 14, 2007 12:37 PM   Subscribe

Help me find office space to sublease in Arlington or McLean, VA.

My two-person company is looking for two offices (~175-200 sf total) to sublease in N Arlington (Clarendon/Courthouse/Rosslyn/Ballston) or McLean. We don't need to be near a Metro, but do need parking available. I check Craigslist daily and the City Paper weekly, and have posted notices on various listerves, but am not finding much out there. We've tried going through commerical Realtors, but know we are small potatoes compared to the larger companies looking for larger space. Is there some hidden resource I can tap into?

N Arlington is hell for parking, at least along the Orange Line axis. You'd probably be better in Crystal City, although even there, you're going to end up paying $90-150 a month per space. But at least it's easy for people to come in for the day and park in the underground garage there.

I've seen signs up in the Crystal City Underground about offices for rent by the day/week/month. I'll try to come up with the name, but if you walk through the underground you'll inevitably see one of their ads.

If you want something for longer than a short-term rental company, practically all of Crystal City is owned by Charles E. Smith Commercial Realty, so you could just call them and ask what's available.

I suspect that Crystal City is a little cheaper than Rosslyn, as well. (And it's going to get a lot cheaper in the next few years; all the government offices in leased spaces are supposed to move out and down to Belvoir in the not-too-distant future.)

I disagree, i think north arlington has great parking. some of the best in the area.

and there is probably less/easier to deal with traffic around there than in mclean.

that having been said, i'd suggest driving around the area a little bit. there are a few signs around some of the bldgs with 'for lease' on them.
