Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on Viginia’s new tallest office building — a speculative 35-story high-rise at 1812 N. Moore St., Rosslyn, Virginia. In fact, it will be one of the Washington region’s tallest office towers, delivering into one of the most sluggish office markets in years. The developer is Monday Properties, the New York-based property firm that owns the Helmsley Building at 230 Park Ave. in Manhattan.

Monday’s Executive Vice President Tim Helmig said interest in the office tower has been steadily on the rise since the first of the year, heightened now that prospective tenants can tour the space. The completed structure now also allows them to imagine where their offices might sit and how they might gaze out over the sweeping views of Washington’s skyline.

Designed by Davis, Carter, Scott Ltd., the 580,000 square-foot building will be certified LEED Core & Shell Platinum. Monday Properties worked closely with Arlington County officials in planning the building to take advantage of building density incentives. The building includes high-efficiency mechanical systems, preferred parking for hybrid vehicles, and direct access to the Rosslyn metro station.

Helmig, who has been involved in the project since its inception, highlighted the building’s selling points on a recent tour of the nearly 580,000-square-foot structure. Looking forward, Helmig said he hopes to sign an anchor tenant within the next 180 days.
