The Northern Virginia office market will soon welcome another new nationally recognized company thanks to Monday Properties' 1812 North Moore office tower.
Gerber, the iconic early childhood nutrition company owned by Nestlé, is joining its parent company in moving its headquarters to the Rosslyn building, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Monday.
The company, founded in 1928 in Michigan and acquired by Nestlé in 2007, is currently based in Florham Park, New Jersey. It will bring 150 jobs and invest $5M with its move. The commonwealth is providing an $862,500 grant for the project, and Gerber will be eligible for additional tax credits. “Closer proximity to Nestlé USA’s new headquarters in Arlington will provide efficiencies that will be reinvested in our people, products and production to fuel growth,” Gerber CEO Bill Partyka said in a release. “Northern Virginia also offers a great quality of life for our employees and provides access to strong talent for our current and future needs.”
Nestlé signed on in early 2017 to anchor 1812 North Moore St., the 35-story, 537K SF office tower with a 250K SF lease. Gerber will open its office within that 250K SF footprint. Monday earlier this year signed healthcare technology company Cerner Corp. to a 38K SF lease in the building. The tower delivered in 2013 and sat vacant for four years before landing a tenant.
