Germantown's BowTruss Building picks up two tenants

Concept, Stratasan take one-third of converted industrial building's space

Two local tech companies have signed leases in Germantown's BowTruss Building.

Concept Technology, an IT consulting and support services company, will lease 8,700 square feet, joining the 4,000-square-foot lease health care analytics firm Stratasan signed earlier this year. The two leases, financial terms of which are not being disclosed, represent more than a third of the space available at the Holladay Properties/Ronnie Wenzler-developed project located at 1009 Third Ave. N.

"Concept Technology and Stratasan are exactly the kind of companies that the BowTruss Building was designed to serve,” Allen Arender, Holladay Properties’ vice president of development, said in a release. "Both are fast-moving, entrepreneurial, creative companies with a strong culture built on a respect for employees. Just about everything about BowTruss — the location in a vibrant urban environment, the way the space lays out, the easy access to parking and the non-corporate aesthetic of our renovation — appeals to companies seeking an office environment that inspires instead of stultifies. It’s a workplace that employees want to tell their friends about."

Holladay converted another industrial space — the Sawtooth Building on Wedgewood — into office space for Griffin Technologies. Likewise, Holladay and Wenzler are partnering on industrial-to-office project The Sheds on Charlotte, a conversion of 1940s-era corrugated metal sheds into an office and retail complex.
