Edge Commercial has brokered a lease with Capital Eye Care for 9,334 square feet of space within 6720A Rockledge Drive, an eight-story, 200,000 square foot Class “A” office tower situated in the Bethesda section of Montgomery County. Together with 6720B Rockledge Drive, an adjacent 225,000 square foot structure, the two buildings comprise the 427,000 square foot Skybridge Towers portfolio developed and managed by Bridge Investment Group. Kenneth Fellows, Partner at Edge and Nathan Crowe of Scheer Partners represented the tenant, and Ben Powell and Gwen Fraker of Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord in this lease transaction.
Capital Eye Care is a full-service ophthalmology practice that was recently formed after the merger of Bethesda-area practices Champlain Ophthalmology and Retina Consultants. The new entity is comprised of 10 doctors and a support staff numbering 40 employees. Capital Eye Care specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of retina-related conditions and diseases including detached retinas and tears, macular holes and age-related macular degeneration.
6720A Rockledge Drive is situated less than one mile from Interstates 495 and 270, approximately five miles from downtown Bethesda and 10 miles from Tysons Corner, Virginia. A free, structured parking garage services the Skybridge Towers office complex.
“With both practices currently located within the north Bethesda sub-market, it was important to identify a new office space situated in the immediate area to minimize disruption to existing patients as well as the loyal employees,” stated Kenneth Fellows of Edge. “The new location represented every element that was important to the practice owners including an easily-identified and highly-visible building, ample parking, immediate access to major highways and a responsive property management team.”
