San Diego, CA – February 3, 2021 – Presidio Property Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ: SQFT), an internally managed, diversified real estate investment trust, announced the signing of a major lease at its Garden Gateway office property in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The U.S. General Services Administration (or GSA) signed a lease for over 18,000 square feet to be utilized for veterans’ services.
“This 10-year lease with an option to lease for up to 25 years demonstrates the strong tenant demand Presidio is experiencing at a number of its office properties in secondary and tertiary markets. Colorado Springs is an example of a market that has come into its own as a very desirable location to live and work,” said Gary Katz, Senior Vice President of Asset Management.
“Colorado has been an important component of Presidio’s portfolio, and we have been active investors in this desirable market for several years,” added Jack Heilbron, President and Chief Executive Officer. The Company currently owns two office parks and two retail centers in Colorado Springs.
The GSA was established on July 1, 1949 when President Harry S. Truman signed the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act into law.
The GSA provides centralized procurement for the Federal Government, offering billions of dollars’ worth of products, services, and facilities that federal agencies need to serve the public. The GSA manages federal property and provides contracting options for government agencies. It employs approximately 11,600 employees and operates on an annual budget of approximately $16 billion.
