Government Properties Income Trust acquired the building when it bought First Potomac Realty Trust for $1.4 billion in July 2017. Government Properties hired RMR Group to manage the building. RMR plans a major renovation of the property and has selected Avison Young as leasing agents for the 130,000-square-foot space. [Bisnow]
