BETHESDA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#construction–JBG SMITH (NYSE: JBGS), a leading owner and developer of high-quality, mixed-use properties in the Washington, DC market, announced today it has teamed up with Hana, a subsidiary of CBRE Group, to serve as the neighborhood provider and operator of flexible space solutions in National Landing. Hana will initially lease approximately 39,000 square feet of space at 2451 Crystal Drive. The National Landing location will be the first on the East Coast and is expected to open in 2020.
Hana opened its first location in Dallas in August of 2019 and has announced three additional locations in London and one in Irvine, California. Hana offers flexible office leasing for large enterprises, mid-tier companies, and startups, which have proven to be a strong and growing component of the DC region’s larger office market ecosystem. Through this partnership, tenants will have the benefit of the Hana offering for immediate space needs and will also be integrated into the JBG SMITH customer experience, giving them the ability to grow as their needs evolve over time.
“JBG SMITH is pleased to welcome Hana to the East Coast and to the rapidly growing and diversifying National Landing neighborhood following Amazon’s HQ2 announcement,” said David Ritchey, Executive Vice President of JBG SMITH. “We believe Hana’s unique approach to adaptable workspaces and highly amenitized office space aligns perfectly with industry trends and is complementary to National Landing’s existing offerings, as well as JBG SMITH’s overall portfolio. Hana gives our existing and future office tenants the ability to scale their growth with significant flexibility, providing seamless life span support while expanding the range of offerings we provide, including pre-built suites, flexible space, and traditional longer-term office space.”
As a subsidiary of CBRE Group, Hana has the financial strength, operating excellence, deep tenant relationships, and customer service-focused approach that JBG SMITH expects to deliver in all aspects of the office user experience in National Landing.
Located in the heart of National Landing, 2451 Crystal Drive encompasses nearly 400,000 square feet. The 11-story building includes a recently renovated lobby with a hospitality-driven design while the immediate neighborhood features an abundance of existing amenities, including an on-site childcare facility, expansive fitness center with showers and locker rooms, new restaurants, a café, and bike storage and repair. Just two blocks from the Virginia Railway Express and the Crystal City Metro Station, 2451 Crystal Drive is also easily accessible to major area highways and highly proximate to Reagan National Airport.
“Hana is thrilled to partner with JBG SMITH for our first East Coast location at National Landing surrounded by fantastic amenities available to Hana members and a dramatic transformation occurring within the neighborhood,” said Andrew Kupiec, CEO of Hana. “We believe our unique flexible space solution, coupled with National Landing’s array of live, work and play offerings, will provide Hana clients a premier workspace to attract and retain top talent.”
Hana’s core offering is Hana Team, which provides private office suites that meet the needs of high-growth organizations and large corporate users of office space. Hana Team combines the benefits of flexible space with the amenities, technology, thoughtful space design, and control over branding and culture that sophisticated companies require. Each Hana unit also features two other integral offerings – Hana Meet and Hana Share. Hana Meet provides conference room and event space that can be reserved on an hourly, daily or weekly basis.
