Gannett Considers Selling Tysons Corner Headquarters

by | Feb 10, 2015

Gannett, publisher of USA Today and other newspapers and media properties, will consider selling its headquarters and relocating, Chief Executive Gracia C. Martore told employees.

Gannett’s headquarters comprise two Tysons Corner office towers it owns at 7960 Jones Branch Dr., a total of about 785,000 square feet. A possible move comes as Gannett prepares to split into two companies – one focused on digital and broadcasting businesses and the other on the flagship newspaper, stated a piece in The Washington Post.

“This is part of our transition to more efficient use of our real estate across the company,” Gannett spokesman Jeremy Gaines said in an e-mail.

Gaines added the company plans to remain in the D.C. area, but in selling its towers — a prominent sight from the Capital Beltway — Gannett could become the latest major employer to decide it no longer needs a large presence in Fairfax County, denting the county’s reputation as a landing spot for large corporations, continued the Post’s piece.
