Managed by Cushman & Wakefield, Ballston Station has provided its tenants with a variety of sustainable commuting options which has allowed the property to retain and attract new tenants. Located less than a block away from Ballston Metro, the property also has access to Capital Bikeshare stations,as well as several ART and Metrobus routes.
Promoting Sustainability to Tenants
Ballston Station has participated in several events over the past few years such as Earth Day, Bike to Work Day, and Car Free Day to name a few. Last year’s Earth Day event attracted over 375 tenant employees to the building’s lobby to learn more about Ballston Station’s green practices and their efforts to promote sustainability. ATP assisted tenants in learning about all their commute options, unique transit benefits, information on the I-66 Inside the Beltway, and emergency commute planning such as Guaranteed Ride Home.
The success of the various events and tenant feedback led them to incorporate infrastructure and amenity improvements into the upcoming budget year.
Re-purposing for impact
As part of their efforts to promote active modes of transportation, sustainability, and a healthy lifestyle, Ballston Station’s ownership and management team enhanced their existing secure indoor bike room, with a state-of-the-art fitness center that includes both shower and locker facilities. These physical improvements were the missing piece to the building’s offerings which enable more employees to become active commuters.
