Lean and green is the order for Monday Properties’ newest development, a $300 million, 35-story building in Rosslyn, Virginia. Expected to be Virginia’s first LEED Platinum building, the 580,000-square-foot property will break ground on Oct. 14 and is slated for completion in Fall 2013.

Located at 1812 North Moore Street, the office tower once completed will be the metro Washington, DC area’s largest office tower. It will hit 390 feet, which is the maximum height allowed near Reagan National Airport. Monday Properties also projects that it will create more than 325 construction jobs. The company also estimates that it will be able to save nearly 25 percent in energy costs and 40 in water costs.

An existing 10-story building was demolished on the site in 2009.

In the past two years, Monday has signed more than a million square feet of leases and has a 96 percent occupancy rate amongst its portfolio.
