Levitt Bloomberg News Washington’s Watergate office building, made famous by the political scandal that brought down President Richard M. Nixon, is under contract to be sold, according to financing documents obtained by Bloomberg. New York real estate investment firm Steinbridge Group and Dallasbased Lincoln Property Co. are buying 2500 and 2600 Virginia Ave. NW, also known as Watergate East, for $107 million, according to the document by brokerage Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP. The 12-story, 270,000-square-foot office property in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood, about a mile west of the White House, is part of a sixbuilding complex that also includes co-op apartments and a hotel that has just been renovated. Burglars in 1972 broke into the office building’s 11th floor, then the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee, a crime that ultimately led to the unraveling of the Nixon presidency. Earlier Sale The seller is a partnership led by Greenfield Partners LLC, a Westport, Connecticut-based real estate investment management firm, said a person with knowledge of the transaction, who asked not to be named because the details are private. Washington- based Penzance Cos., said to be part of the partnership, paid $76 million for it in November 2011, data from RealCapital Analytics Inc. show. That sale resolved a “troubled situation,” according to Real Capital, in which the property was controlled by a creditor after owner BentleyForbes fell into debt following the 2008 financial crisis. Russ Colchamiro, a spokesman for Steinbridge Group, said the company won’t comment. Calls to Mack Pogue, founder and chairman of Lincoln Property, and Tim Byrne, its president, weren’t returned. Representatives for Greenfield and Penzance also didn’t return calls. Office Tenants The building has about 205,000 square feet of offices, with the rest retail space, according to the person with knowledge of the deal. About 14 percent of the office space is vacant, and asking rents are about $47 a square foot, according to leasing- data firm CoStar Group Inc. Tenants include the National Trust for Historic Preservation, George Washington University and Sage Publications. The owners of the hotel, which shares a wall with the office building, recently completed a $125 million makeover by Israeli architect Ron Arad.
