The Washington Business Journal reported this week that Amtrak has agreed to a deal to move its corporate headquarters from Washington Union Station to a nearby office building.
Amtrak is expected to begin using the first through sixth floors of its new space this fall in the building that is also known as the National Guard Memorial Building.
The space that the national rail carrier now uses is slated to be re-purposed into a boutique hotel.
Amtrak is currently leasing 106,000 square feet of space at Union Station and that lease expires this year.
In looking for a new home, Amtrak hired Savills Studley to study existing space and the possibility of building new structure.
Amtrak’s new landlord will be an affiliate of the National Guard Association of the United States. The lease give Amtrak access to a large conference center and a tenant-only fitness center.
