Scenes from St. John Properties Broker Event at 14400 Sweitzer Lane

Matt Lenihan, Senior Vice President, Leasing for St. John Properties addresses the commercial real estate brokers attending the recent breakfast event at 14400 Sweitzer Lane, a four-story 120,000 square foot Class ‘A’ office building in Laurel that the company acquired in 2020. “Prior to acquiring the asset, we thought this high-profile building overlooking Interstate 95 matched our construction standards and looked like something we would build ourselves, so we had tremendous interest in it,” Lenihan said. The building features a brick and ribbon glass exterior, two-story lobby, floorplates measuring approximately 30,000 square feet, an outdoor patio area and a free, surface parking lot that can accommodate 400 vehicles.

St. John Properties recently concluded a comprehensive set of interior and exterior improvements valued at approximately $1.5 million, which was undertaken to increase the building’s capability to support multi-tenant occupancy and elevate overall aesthetics and functionality. The scope of work included installing modern finishes and furnishings in the lobby and common areas, adding a tenant fitness center, “Grab & Go Market” food amenity, new landscaping, and updating the HVAC systems.
