Washington, DC – Avison Young today announced that it has represented the buyer of 5680 King Centre Drive, a premier office building in Alexandria, VA.

"Consolidating our team under one roof allows us to improve collaboration, work much more efficiently, and continue to strengthen and build the Bank's signature culture of community as we embrace future expansion," said David P. Boyle, the Bank’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "The acquisition of this building is consistent with our plans for growth as we continue to execute our strategic priorities."
The new office will house employees from several departments, including commercial, treasury management, retail banking, human resources, operations, finance and accounting, credit risk management, marketing, digital strategy and information technology. The new location is more centrally located for its expanding workforce, is certified as a LEED Gold level building and provides additional visibility for the Bank.
“We are proud to have helped Burke & Herbert Bank find the ideal building for its employees working around the area,” Kornick said. “This is a first-class building in an incredible location, offering convenient access to commuter roads and nearby stores, restaurants and other amenities.”
