MOI, Inc. Relocating 60 Employees from Woodlawn to McHenry Row in Locust Point

| April 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

MOI, Inc., a workplace solutions company that has operated in Woodlawn since 1997, has announced plans to relocate its Baltimore County headquarters to McHenry Row III at 1265 E. Fort Ave. in Locust Point this fall. McHenry Row III is a five-story, 75,000 sq. ft. Class “A” commercial office that is currently under construction.

MOI, Inc. will move 60 employees into a new 13,284 sq. ft. space.

Joe Nolan and David Fritz of NAI KLNB, the exclusive leasing representative for McHenry Row, represented the landlord in this transaction. MOI, Inc. was represented by Nicole Miller of Savills Studley.

MOI, Inc. will join Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., which announced its intention to relocate within McHenry Row to an expanded 5,459 sq. ft. space, and accounting firm Gross Mendelsohn & Associates, which leased 24,300 sq. ft. of office space, at McHenry Row III. The McHenry Row III development is now 80% pre-leased.

“This real estate decision was driven by two important considerations, led by the need to change the physical work space we operate from, and create an environment where we could demonstrate solutions to help clients visualize what is possible when moving or renovating an existing space,” said David Noel, president of MOI, Inc., in a press release. “We realized that the current location could not adequately represent or address these needs. Additionally, we were looking to create more efficiency for our warehouse and logistics operations by finding a strategic location between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. to better service our geographical footprint.”

“The floorplan offered at McHenry Row will enable us to showcase creative ideas for what’s possible in space along with our talents, depth of knowledge and ability to deliver comprehensive solutions for working environments,” he continued. “This space will be the first in Baltimore to fully integrate modular interior construction that provides completely integrated technology tools. In McHenry Row, we found an extremely vibrant community that provides many compelling amenities to our workforce. With direct visibility to Interstate 95, it also provides convenient access to our out-of-town clients, as well as to our four satellite offices in the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia areas.”

MOI, Inc. achieved more than $120 million in revenue last year and employs more than 150 people in offices that include Washington, D.C. and Richmond and Norfolk, Virginia.

The five-story brick and glass exterior building was designed by Warehaus, the York, Pennsylvania-based architectural company that also has an office in Baltimore. The first level of the building will be fully occupied by MOI, Inc. Floors two through five offer 15,600 sq. ft. floorplans.

McHenry Row III is positioned directly adjacent to a 128-room Marriott Courtyard, which is also under construction, as well as an existing structured parking garage that can accommodate more than 600 vehicles.

“The common denominator of this recent leasing activity was the desire among companies to surround their employees with an interactive and fully-contained environment that offers dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities,” said Mark Sapperstein of 28 Walker Development in a press release. “With Kimley-Horn moving from within the project, Gross Mendelsohn & Associates relocating from another section of the city and MOI now joining us from an adjacent county, each recognized the opportunity to leverage the available labor market that resides in the nearby residential communities.”

McHenry Row is a 20-acre mixed-use project at the site of a former Coca-Cola facility and a former paper factory. McHenry Row currently has nearly 500 apartment units, 300,000 sq. ft. of commercial office space,  more than 110,000 sq. ft. of retail space, and 1,500 parking spaces.
