National Science Foundation is a Class A 700,439 SF office project with 18,368 feet of ground floor retail on 2.03 acres of land located in Alexandria, Virginia. The building consists of two interconnected office towers, one 19 stories and one 14 stories, with dual cores off a main entrance lobby at grade level. There are 380 parking spaces located on three subterranean levels.

The project was co-developed with Lowe Enterprises as the new headquarters for the National Science Foundation. NSF took occupancy of the building in September of 2017 under a 15-year firm term lease that is held by the federal government’s real estate arm, the General Services Administration or GSA.

The building was certified LEED Silver for New Construction and has been Energy Star compliant since occupancy.

The building is located 5 minutes from Reagan national Airport and is adjacent to the Eisenhower Metro stop in Alexandria.

Located in Hoffman Town Center, this project has spurred several new development projects nearby. A 600k office building was converted into residential with ground floor retail. Also, a 1 million SF development project containing 750 residential units and 130k SF of grocery anchored retail has now been completed.

The National Science Foundation is an independent federal agency that supports science and engineering in all 50 states and U.S. territories. It was established in 1950 by Congress to promote the progress of science, advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare, and to secure the national defense. In 2022 its annual budget was more than $8.8 billion dollars.
