The lunch hour around Potomac Yard restaurants could get a little busier this fall.

Two years after the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) first broke ground on its Potomac Yard headquarters, the national security nonprofit announced plans to move into the headquarters by the end of the year.

The IDA is one of the large office tenants that signaled the first-wave of growth for the new Potomac Yard, with projects like the Virginia Tech campus still working through the development process this fall.

“The new facility, located at 730 East Glebe Road, encompasses 370,000 square feet and will include a conference center with 300-seat auditorium with several breakout rooms,” the nonprofit said in a press release. “The building has considerably more dedicated space for classified work and improved design for evolving security requirements. IDA’s new home is in a great location in the City of Alexandria’s high-tech corridor and close to the future Potomac Yard Metro stop.”

IDA and its new neighbors, though, will have to wait a little longer for that future Metro stop. The opening of the Potomac Yard Metro station, originally scheduled for April next year, has been pushed back to next September due to an error in the contract language.
