“Go West Young Man” – Interstate 81 Corridor Sees Growth of Commerical Opportunities over the Mountain.
A new move is growing by leaps and bounds as more Northern Virginia businesses look at expanding or relocating their businesses across the mountain into Frederick County /Winchester and the Interstate 81 Corridor.
Andrew Nicholson, Commercial Property Manager for The Aikens Group, has leased over six new spaces to clients who have moved from the Northern Virginia (Fairfax and Loudoun County) area to Winchester. “It is interesting that this is not just one industry moving here.” says Andrew. “We have doctors, dentists, web designers, research industries who have recently rented from us. For many it is the quality of life one experiences in our area that is the drawing card. Tired of commuting and losing hours just sitting in a car driving also makes our area very attractive. Plus the increase in gas prices has not hurt our cause.”
Commercial prospects are surprised at the amenities offered in many of Aikens buildings. Unlike in the metropolitan area, many of these are considered standard out here. Ample parking is also a drawing card. But bottom line, Andrew says “it is the rental fees are very competitive compared to the Northern Virginia rates.”
The Aikens Group has over 150 offices, warehouses, retail free-standing, professional office buildings , and strip center spaces on the Interstate 81 Corridor in Virginia and West Virginia. A company with 80 years of experience in the Shenandoah Valley, Aikens Group also is a land developer and owns its own Construction and Crane Companies. They also operate eight Hotels including the Hilton Garden, Marriott Fairfield, and Hampton Inns and have over 250 Apartments from luxury to economical complexes.
