Empty Courthouse Office Building for Sale — The big, white Verizon office building at 1320 N. Courthouse Road is actually vacant — and for sale. After nearly 30 years as a tenant, Verizon left its offices in the building. The owner is now seeking interested buyers or joint venture partners. [GlobeSt.com]

    Looks like Charlie got a DC Police escort on VA (possibly Arlington’s) highways on Tuesday night from Dulles.


    • Larchmont

      Looks like it was too dark for him to get a picture of the uniformed ACP at every overpass.

    • ArlLiver4

      What are the rules regarding DC Police providing escorts with lights while in Virgina?

      I’ve seen escorts before, presumably for actual VIPs.

    DR DREMOS!!!!

      Think how many Burger Joints you could put in that building. It would be a quasi-example of Darwainism to see which ones are the best.

      • steve

        Why don’t they make the building turn into a sailing ship like in The Meaning of Life? Then it could be a mobile burger/cupcake mega center/sailing ship though it wouldn’t be led by accountants.

    On 1320 Courthouse – the $45 per square foot number is the asking annual rent, not the hoped for sales price. Even empty, the building will sell for much, much more than that per square foot.

    • This is why I’m not in the real estate biz. I’ll take that part out.

    • CW

      Yeah, seriously. If you can find me a place that I can buy for $45 / sq. ft. around here, please let me (and no one else) know.

      • KalashniKEV

        That’s what I was thinking… is it junked out? At $45/ft sale I’d pay to move my office there… or at least *just* my office.

    So Libby Garvey wants to be elected so she can “travel around the state and tour different districts.” Great platform, but why doesn’t she just buy a car?

    • steve

      she’s on the car free diet!
