Allison Perry and Adam Nachlas of MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services brokers lease for professional and technical management consulting firm
Innovative Consulting & Management Services (ICMS) has signed a lease with Lakeforest Ventures, LLC for 4935 square feet of office space within 100 Lakeforest Boulevard, a six-story building containing nearly 140,000 square feet of commercial office space in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Allison Perry, Real Estate Advisor and Adam Nachlas, Senior Vice President with MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC represented the tenant and Bob Dickman, Principal, Avison Young represented the landlord in this lease transaction. The company is relocating from its existing space at 7361 Calhoun Place in Rockville.
Innovative Consulting & Management Services works with a diverse range of industries, including state and federal agencies, to provide IT solutions as well as management and facilities services. This includes handling networking and communications projects, structured cabling, data center solutions and managed IT assignments. The group supports its customers with decisions related to corporate strategy, operations and technology.
Constructed in 1984, 100 Lakeforest Boulevard is situated near the intersection of MD Routes 124 (Quince Orchard Road) and 355 and is directly adjacent to Interstate 270 in Montgomery County. The building is positioned next to a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, with a number of business amenities including restaurants located within close proximity. Downtown Washington, D.C. is less than 30 miles away. The lease elevates 100 Lakeforest Boulevard to 100% occupancy.
“The primary driver of the company’s decision was to relocate to a Maryland HUBZone, which are designated geographic areas where small businesses are recipients of federal contract dollars explained Allison Perry of MacKenzie. “This specific HUBZone in Gaithersburg only encompasses a few buildings and, because of the benefits of this designation, they are in extremely high demand and nearly 100 percent leased. The relocation from its former space is less than five miles, so there will be minimal impact to its employees and customer base. The building is served by several major highways which will help reduce travel times for companies when traveling throughout the greater Washington metropolitan region.”
