DRV leases to FEMA in western Henrico

Diversified Realty Ventures (DRV) of Richmond has signed a short-term 17,500 square foot lease with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at Deep Run III, a 383,000 SF Class A office building in western Henrico.

Located at 9954 Mayland Dr., the six-story Deep Run III building was part of Circuit City’s headquarters complex until the firm declared bankruptcy in 2008. DRV acquired the building in late 2011 in a joint venture with Markel/Eagle Partners, LLC. Since the acquisition, the ownership has been planning major renovations, now scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2012, and targeting nationally known corporations for future anchor tenancy.

FEMA’s presence in Henrico will provide a base of operations to serve the central Virginia area. DRV executed the lease in less than a week, represented by Mark Douglas and Austin Newman of Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer.
