Pegasystems, a global software company based in Massachusetts, has leased nearly 11,000 square feet at the Dulles Town Center in Loudoun County. This is the company’s 38th global office space and first presence in Virginia.
“This deal is a byproduct of the county’s successful effort of building a robust data center user environment,” explained Newmark Knight Frank’s Managing Director Jeff Tarae, who represented landlord Lerner Enterprises in the deal. “Once they surveyed the area, our building presented a great Class A offering in the county with a whole suite of amenities to them.”
“This is their first office space in the region and what drew them here was the presence of Amazon, because they’re an Amazon services contractor.”
The Pegasystems office will build out the entire fourth floor of the 21000 Atlantic Boulevard office building, approximately eight miles from the Amazon Web Service headquarters in Herndon.
This is another big win for Loudoun’s growing tech economy.
“We’re excited that Pegasystems has made this commitment to expanding their operations in Loudoun County. Their unique platforms make a daily impact on global businesses and they are a welcome addition to the growing technology base we are building in the Dulles Technology Corridor,” said Buddy Rizer, Loudoun’s executive director of economic development.
In the new space, Pegasystems will be neighbors with tenants like Sallie Mae, Alpha Corporation and SOFIE. There is still an additional 70,000 feet of available Class-A office space in the building.
“This was an advantageous move for Pegasystems, which recently announced its collaboration with AWS and Amazon Connect, also located in Dulles,” Mark D. Lerner, Lerner’s principal, said in a statement. “21000 Atlantic’s easily-accessible location combined with onsite and walkable amenities continues to bring out-of-state tenants to our market.”
