LearnZillion, a private, venture-backed educational company, was quickly growing out of their sublet space. They enjoyed their Dupont Circle neighborhood so much that they tasked Stout & Teague with identifying a space nearby which could accommodate their growing staff and open work style. “Lucky for me,” said Mike Gordon, Stout & Teague’s Vice President of Leasing, “though we searched all over Dupont Circle and the CBD for the right fit, the best option was right down the block…literally. We negotiated for over 3,000 sf of extremely cost effective, long term sublet space, which happened to be one block west of their former location”.
Their new home, the Thomas Nelson Page House at 1759 R Street, is a 20,000 sf masterpiece built in 1896 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. LearnZillion benefited from the fact that the current sublandlord, the American Institute for Cancer Research, had recently renovated and vacated the entire top floor of the Georgian-style mansion, which includes access to conference rooms and a private outdoor terrace. Special thanks to Theo Slagle of Cushman & Wakefield who represented the sublandlord in its efforts to welcome LearnZillion into 1759 R St, NW.
