Plaza America

Plaza America occupies 27 acres of Dulles Airport Toll Road ten minutes from Dulles International Airport and 25 minutes from downtown Washington DC.

The site was recognised by Tamares Real Estate as a prime development opportunity. It acquired the land in 1988 and proceeded to have it re-zoned in order to develop a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use campus. Tamares Real Estate contributed over $5 million to fund improvements to local transport which helped to ensure the development's success.

A 165,000 square feet retail centre opened in 1995. Fully leased, the retail centre provided an income stream while the rest of the development was completed and let. The retail centre serves as an attractive amenity to the office tenants and has been a key factor in Plaza America's success.

Plaza America is now an award-winning, mixed-use development the office section of which includes four towers. Together these have one million square feet of Class A office space. This is fully-leased to leading firms such as Unisys, DynCorp, NCI Information Systems and the University of Phoenix.
