According to WBJ, Veterans Affairs has agreed to a lease at 425 Eye in the Mount Vernon Triangle. The lease is for 10 years with a right to terminate after 7. Veterans Affairs views 425 Eye as “swing space” that they will occupy on a temporary basis until their current home, the Lafayette Building, is renovated.
According to the article VA may begin their move as soon as June 2011. Hopefully we’ll hear similarly bright news about the ground floor retail soon.
