“Broad and Washington is a strategic main and main location at the City’s core. Falls Church is a place with beautiful established neighborhoods, Metro access, and first-class schools, retail and proximity to employment." - Insight President Michael Blum

Arlington, Virginia-based Insight Property Group LLC and Reston, Virginia-based Kiddar Metz announced today their acquisition last week of the 2.68 acre northeast corner of Broad and Washington Streets— State Routes Route 7 and Route 29 – in downtown Falls Church, Virginia. Seller of the sites was its long-time owner, Robertson Properties LC.

The three parcels totaling 2.68 acres are improved with a class B office building, a free-standing Applebee’s restaurant and a medical office building. Insight and Kiddar joined forces as Broad & Washington LLC to buy all three, including 100 N Washington Street, 131 E Broad Street and 127 E Broad Street.

According to Insight President Michael Blum, “Broad and Washington is a strategic main and main location at the City’s core.” And, Blum says, “Falls Church is a place with beautiful established neighborhoods, Metro access, first-class schools, retail and proximity to employment."

Adds Kiddar Metz CEO Todd Hitt, “We are believers in downtown Falls Church.”
