Maryland University of Integrative Health Signs 10,070 Square Foot Lease at 8115 Maple Lawn Boulevard
BALTIMORE (February 12, 2016) – Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH), an accredited graduate university for natural medicine, has signed a lease with St. John Properties, Inc. and Greenebaum Enterprises, Inc. for 10,070 square feet of space within 8115 Maple Lawn Boulevard. MUIH intends to place approximately forty faculty and staff into the four-story, 123,000 square foot Class “A” office building located within Maple Lawn, a 600-acre mixed-use business community in Howard County, Maryland by May. The building, which was designed to achieve LEED-certification, was completed last year and is now 70% leased.
Richard Williamson, Senior Vice President, Leasing for St. John Properties represented the landlord and Abby Glassberg of NAI KLNB represented the tenant in this transaction.
8115 Maple Lawn Boulevard consists of a brick and glass exterior and expansive, column-free 30,000 square foot floor plates. The project features high-energy HVAC units, energy-efficient motion sensor light fixtures, double pane insulated glass, white TPO roofing membranes and dual-flush toilets. Low VOC paint and adhesives were utilized in the construction, and storm water runoff will be managed utilizing a state-of-the-art system that minimizes the effect on local waterways.
The main campus for Maryland University of Integrative Health is situated on 12 wooded acres in Laurel, and the institution will utilize this location in Maple Lawn to house academic, administrative and community program space. MUIH educates practitioners in health and wellness through transformative and relationship-centered programs. Approximately 1300 students from 45 states and 21 countries are currently enrolled in graduate programs at the university.
More than 1.8 million square feet of commercial office space is permitted within Maple Lawn’s commercial districts, in additional to a residential component that can support more than 1,300 housing units. A full-service hotel with conference center is also part of the development program. St. John Properties and Greenebaum Enterprises formed a joint venture partnership several years ago to develop, lease and manage 300,000 square feet of commercial office and R&D space within Maple Lawn.
Located off MD Route 29 in Fulton, MD in the Washington-Baltimore corridor section of Howard County, Maple Lawn is located approximately three miles from Interstate 95 and the Inter-County Connector, twenty minutes from BWI Airport, 22 miles from Baltimore and 30 miles from downtown Washington, D.C.
Maple Lawn is a mixed-use community that contains more than 700,000 square feet of commercial office space, research and development/flex space, plus medical buildings and retail uses in a “Main Street-style” environment. Companies that maintain operations in Maple Lawn include Regus, NewDay USA, Raytheon, Air Patrol Corporation and ELTA North America. The retail component includes merchants such as Harris Teeter, Looney’s Pub, Maple Lawn Market, Ranazul Restaurant, I.M. Wine, Sidamo Coffee & Tea and Coreworks Fitness Studio.
“Maple Lawn is extremely well-suited for an educational use, given its strategic proximity within the Baltimore-Washington Corridor, the mature highway system that allow convenient access, the availability of free parking and the walkable amenities,” stated Richard Williamson, Senior Vice President, Leasing for St. John Properties. “Capturing Maryland University of Integrative Health, which is an extremely respected and recognized national university, represents a significant win for our business community.”
All Maple Lawn buildings are connected via underground conduits which enable tenants with a presence in more than one building to share voice and data systems. The business community includes an on-site fitness center, nearby childcare and numerous dining and shopping amenities.
