Property utilized as warehouse and specialty storage facility for Library of Congress

 Finmarc Management, Inc., a Bethesda, Maryland-based commercial real estate firm, has announced the sale of 1701 Brightseat Road, a 216,000 square foot warehouse building in the Landover section of Prince George’s County, Maryland for $31.65 million. Marc Rampulla, Scott Frankel, Marcy Owens Test and Edward Welbourn of CBRE represented the seller. The buyer was Salus Property Investments, based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The building has a lease through January 31, 2022 with the General Services Administration (GSA), and currently functions as a temperature-controlled warehouse facility for the United States Library of Congress to store a portion of the Library’s collection of documents, books, photographs, periodicals and archival records. Constructed in the 1970s, the two-story structure is situated on approximately seven acres of land and is equipped with six refrigerated cold vaults.

 

“1701 Brightseat Road represented a strategic core GSA investment opportunity and, given its long-term lease with a credit-worthy tenant, attracted a significant volume of investor interest from a national perspective,” explained Marc Rampulla, CBRE First Vice President.
