New space near BWI Airport spurred by St. John Properties’ strategy of converting office building to flex/R&D

BALTIMORE, MDSkyline Technology Solutions, a full-service IT company that supports the federal, state, and local government, education, public safety, transportation, and commercial sectors, has signed two leases with St. John Properties, Inc. totaling nearly 45,000 square feet of space at Aviation Business Park. The group renewed its 28,753 square foot office lease at 6956 Aviation Boulevard, where it maintains its corporate headquarters, and signed a new 16,001 square foot flex/R&D lease within the same business park at 6958 Aviation Boulevard. Mike Roden of CBRE represented the client and Lacey Johansson of St. John Properties represented the landlord in both transactions.

Early last year St. John Properties acquired Aviation Business Park, a three-building portfolio containing more than 120,000 square feet of single-story office space. The company proceeded to reconfigure 6958 Aviation Boulevard into a flex/R&D building with the installation of drive-in doors, and the expansion of loading areas to accommodate flex uses.

Skyline Technology Solutions specializes in managed IT solutions, cybersecurity, public safety data and video interoperability, fiber design and build, as well as physical security and access control services. The company, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, works with numerous State Departments of Transportation around the country, including the State of Maryland to develop and manage highway video streaming systems. Skyline is currently supporting 17 states leveraging their Claris Video Sharing platform.

“Our company originally chose to establish our base of operations in the BWI Airport area because it afforded our employees easy access to State of Maryland offices in Annapolis and Baltimore City,” explained Jason Ross, Vice President, Corporate Services, Skyline Technology Solutions. “As we began to expand nationally, the location made it convenient for staff members who needed to travel out-of-town to visit customers. Our group continues to win new business, our operations have grown, and we expanded into several different buildings to keep pace with the new contracts. It was always a long-term goal to consolidate our operations and bring our team closer together, and the conversion of 6958 Aviation Boulevard into a configuration that could support office, warehouse, and logistics space provided the perfect solution. We look forward to completion of the moves this August.”  

Aviation Business Park is located adjacent to Interstate 97 and is approximately 10 minutes from Interstate 95, MD Route 295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway), and Interstate 695 (Baltimore Beltway). The business community is also less than 10 miles from Baltimore, less than 15 miles from Columbia, and approximately 20 miles from Annapolis.

“Our decision to acquire Aviation Business Park and convert a portion of the project to flex space was driven by our confidence in the BWI submarket,” explained Matt Lenihan, Senior Vice President, Leasing, St. John Properties. “The combined office and warehousing needs for Skyline were a perfect fit for this recently repositioned building. This is another good example of how the St. John Properties’ design and construction teams develop creative solutions to accommodate the expansion needs of our existing tenants.”
