Rockville, MD – The EMMES Corporation recently announced the signing of a 10-year lease at its current headquarters at 401 North Washington Street in Rockville. Located in Rockville’s Town Center, the 97,000 square foot space nearly triples the size of their current headquarters.
“Our new lease signals the next chapter of success for the company,” said Dr. Anne Lindblad, executive vice president of EMMES. “We have built a reputation as a trusted partner to researchers who are dedicated to developing better treatments for patients. We’re proud of our 35-year history, and we’re optimistic about our future opportunities.”
Brian Hochheimer, EMMES vice president and chief financial officer, added, “The new lease supports our growth and hiring plans. It gives us four full floors and represents nearly a three-fold expansion compared to the square footage of our original lease. We love being right in the center of Rockville, and we’re pleased to continue the relationship with our landlord, 401 North Washington LLC.”
“Obviously, it’s great news that EMMES chose to stay and expand in Rockville,” noted Laurie Boyer, Executive Director, Rockville Economic Development, Inc. “We are looking forward to their continued growth and success.”
