Monday Properties has secured a tenant for 24,023 square feet of office space at 1812 North Moore in Arlington, Va., near Washington, D.C. Graham Holdings Co., will fully occupy the building’s 21st floor for the next 15 years. JLL brokered the transaction.

The tenant is relocating its headquarters from the Arlington Tower at 1300 17th St. N., as reported by ARL Now. SmithGroup is designing Graham Holdings’ new space and HITT Contracting will handle the build-out.

Rising 35 stories, the tower at 1812 N. Moore St. is the tallest office building in Arlington. Monday Properties was about to lose this property in a foreclosure auction in December, but managed to recapitalize it just in time. The asset became subject to a $173 million loan from Citi Real Estate Funding in a $205.5 million refinancing deal.

Located near Interstate 66, the office building is some 3 miles from downtown Washington, D.C., and 2.5 miles from Arlington’s city center. It is also adjacent to the Rosslyn subway station and within walking distance of the Plaza East shopping mall.
