Anthony Balestrieri, Director and Head of Acquisitions for MetLife Investment Management in Washington DC, said, “We are pleased to partner with Trammell Crow Company on the development of Sentinel Square III. This property represents an opportunity to add a high-quality, materially-leased asset in the NoMa submarket of Washington DC. As an up and coming area which benefits from the NoMa Metro Station and its proximity to Union Station, and with a growing base of residential, retail, hotel and entertainment amenities, we believe NoMa is well positioned to become a great place to live, work and play.” 

Sentinel Square III is part of the selling partnership’s three phase, 1.3 million-square-foot office complex. The building, scheduled to deliver in the beginning of 2020, is designed to meet ISC Level IV security protocols, is pursuing LEED® Silver and is part of Trammell Crow Company’s larger “highly secure, environmentally friendly, efficient and affordable” office development program, which includes Patriots Plaza and National Square in Washington DC as well as various build-to-suits nationwide.
