Carr Properties announced the signing of a new office lease at The Wilson located at 7272 Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, MD. ProShares will occupy 55,000 SF, bringing the building office space to 59% leased.
Oliver Carr, CEO of Carr Properties, commented: We are excited to have ProShares relocate its corporate headquarters to The Wilson. ProShares is a Bethesda-based asset manager that has been at the forefront of the ETF revolution since 2006. We look forward to building a long-term relationship with them as a valued customer. The Wilson was designed to offer unparalleled views and an array of amenities that will provide a first-class experience. We are very pleased that ProShares will have the opportunity to take advantage of all that the building will offer.
Situated in the heart of Bethesda at the prime intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Elm Street, The Wilson (office building) and The Elm (residential) will include 361,000 SF of office space and 456 multifamily units located in three towers all within easy walking distance of Bethesdas best shops and restaurants. The project will extend up 295 feet from the street and will offer the best views in Bethesda. Additionally, the project is adjacent to the new Bethesda transit station which provides access to the Red Line, Purple Line and the Capital Crescent Trail (the premier hiker/biker trail in the DC metro area). Along with changing the skyline, The Wilson will change the way people live and work in Bethesda.
