Satair, an Airbus company inks deal for more space in Northern Virginia

Satair, an Airbus company  inks deal for more space in Northern Virginia

Airbus Americas Inc. has inked a deal for expansion space in Loudoun County after outgrowing a smaller distribution and spare parts facility it upgraded for its Satair Group subsidiary in 2016.

The company has signed a design-build lease for about 250,000 square feet at the Northwoods Industrial Park, according to three sources familiar with the deal. The 2.1 million-square-foot business park, developed by Northwestern Mutual, Broad Street Equities and The Ardent Co., is located off Old Ox Road near Dulles International Airport.


Representatives for the development team could not be reached for comment. An Airbus spokesman declined to confirm or deny the deal but said the company has been looking for expansion sites for Satair.

"Satair, an Airbus Services Company, has been exploring several options to facilitate long term growth," the spokesman said. "As details for that growth solution are finalized at a later date, we will communicate about them accordingly."

The new facility would replace a roughly 120,000-square-foot logistics center at 21780 Filigree Court in Ashburn, where it has about 150 employees. It selected that site for a consolidation over a competing location in Atlanta in 2016. The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors at that time approved a $200,000 incentives package to support the company's growth.

Airbus Americas, a subsidiary of Netherlands-based Airbus SE, is headquartered in Herndon.

Northwoods was among the locations Loudoun County pitched for the FBI's headquarters, though it did not make the short list and the search itself was scrapped in favor of keeping the agency's headquarters in the District. The project's developers have retained CBRE to market the 340-acre site to prospective tenants. Representatives for CBRE declined to comment.
