Tech company United Solutions has signed a 20,602-square-foot lease to take the top floor at 909 Rose Avenue, a 212,000-square-foot office building in the Pike & Rose neighborhood of North Bethesda, Md., with landlord Federal Realty Investment Trust.
Rockville, Md.-based United Solutions, which offers technological products involving blockchain, artificial intelligence and automation, plans to move into the building this winter.
“We are grateful for the opportunities we have had with our federal government partners and organizations around the world, to help them realize the power of cutting edge technologies to reinvent businesses and protect workforces,” David Nguyen, United Solutions’ founder and CEO, said in a release. “Our success has enabled us to expand our reach, and subsequently, expand our workforce. We look forward to growing in a state-of-the-art space and amenity rich neighborhood that will enhance employee morale, recruiting and engagement.”
Federal Realty opened the 11-story, LEED Gold-certified office building last summer, and moved its own headquarters into the second and third floors. Earlier this year, workplace provider Industrious signed a 42,768-square-foot lease in the same building. OneDigital is also currently in the building, which is now two-thirds leased.
The building features contactless entry throughout the parking garage, lobby and elevators, and an HVAC system that meets enhanced health and safety standards. It also offers outside air filtered to levels appropriate for general surgery rooms.
“Federal is committed to getting people back to work safely, in dynamic buildings with advanced health and wellness attributes, such as 909 Rose,” James Milam, Federal Realty’s senior vice president, said.
909 Rose is part of the 24-acre, transit-oriented Pike & Rose neighborhood that Federal Realty is developing. It includes a residential component as well as dining and entertainment options.
