American Diabetes Association moving from Alexandria to Arlington
The American Diabetes Association plans to relocate its headquarters from Alexandria to Arlington County's Crystal City later this year.
The association will move more than 300 employees to 70,000 square feet of space it is leasing at 2451 Crystal Drive. The relocation is expected to be completed by the third quarter of this year.
The building is owned and managed by Vornado/Charles E. Smith.
“Crystal City offers us the kind of location that is good for our staff and good for our mission — an amenity-rich location, with healthy-eating options, easy access to public transportation, and access to health and fitness facilities. It’s also very accessible to our out-of-town guests”, Suzanne Berry, the association’s interim CEO said in a statement.
Crystal City is home to one of the largest clusters of association and nonprofit organizations in Washington area, with more than 40 organizations, including the Consumer Electronics Association, Conservation International, PBS, AMA and Food Marketing Institute.
Manny Fitzgerald of CBRE represented association in this transaction.
