RAI Properties, LLC is pleased to offer the opportunity to acquire the WASHINGTON Building, located in the BURR Plaza mixed-use development in Kearneysville, West Virginia. Built in 2004, this two-story building has 12,000 SF of modern office/call center space on a 1.2-acre, well-landscaped lot with 70+ parking spaces.
Well-located in an area of the eastern panhandle of West Virginia that is among the fastest growing in the entire Greater D.C. – Baltimore region. Growth is increasing at an accelerating pace due to migration from the Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC urban areas. The building has visibility from and direct access to WV Route 9, the major thoroughfare that runs through Jefferson and Berkeley Counties.
The building is Energy Star rated, and International Building Code and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. The building has robust communication capabilities with separately cooled IT rooms on each floor and redundant Cat-5 and Cat-6 wiring in place throughout, providing high- speed Internet connections (10 GHz+) for centralized management of voice, video and network resources.
Over the past three years more than $200,000 in capital improvements have been made to the WASHINGTON Building, which is offered free of any material deficiencies. Should any be discovered during due diligence, they will be corrected at offeror’s expense.
Life is better out here. The cost of living is less for employees and overhead expenses are less for employers. The “work from anywhere” trend is here to stay and while within 60 miles of the DC Beltway, West Virginia’s eastern panhandle is a wonderfully healthy and safe place to live, work and raise a family. Come see for yourself, we’re closer than you think.
RAI Properties, LLC was founded on the belief that there was pent-up demand for modern business space here in Jefferson County and that providing same would be not only be a wise investment but would foster much-needed economic expansion close to home. The company began operations in 2003, purchasing the first of five lots in Burr Park and started construction to meet the needs of small to mid-size businesses. RAI Properties has invested more than $10m to develop BURR Plaza.
BURR Plaza is a 19-acre business park, with almost 100,000sf of modern commercial, retail and office space, all within a designated enterprise zone and the tax advantaged boundaries of county-owned Burr Business Park. Thirty enterprises, with more than 450 employees, now call BURR Plaza home, providing support and amenities to one another in our “park within the park”. The principals and employees of RAI Properties live here in the Eastern Panhandle. We operate BURR Plaza as if our personal reputations depend on it … because they do.
