Divaris has put Fort Monroe in the headlines in the last couple of months. In July, Liberty-Source PBC, signed a lease for 9,479 square feet of office space for their onshore business process outsourcing model that will provide financing, accounting, human resources, customer care and additional support services for its clients. The company is expected to create nearly 600 new jobs and invest $1.56 million by centering on employing staff from the U.S. military spouse and recently exciting military community.

Also in July, Alternatives, Inc., leased 5,770 square feet of office space, which will provide research-based youth development programs and training to organizations and communities to build on the strengths of young people.

Located in Hampton, Virginia, Fort Monroe is a 570-acre barrier spit of land surrounded by eight miles of panoramic water views of the Hampton Roads harbor and the Chesapeake Bay. It is home to the largest stone fort ever built in America and now home to the 200-acre national park, under the control of the National Park Service. On September 15, 2011, the U.S. Army departed and the Fort Monroe Authority hired Divaris Real Estate to manage the commercial property and handle the commercial leasing. DRE is excited for the opportunity to represent the Fort Monroe Authority on this redevelopment project. The master plan for the project is a mixed-use concept, combining adaptive reuse, new construction and open space. The plan features residential, retail/dining, hospitality, employment and institutional areas, along with  enhanced public access to the waterfront and beach.
