Jaroch maintains that the SEC’s lease was carefully thought out and a good strategic move for the agency, which handles its own leasing and does not work with the General Services Administration as most other federal agencies do. He did not anticipate the SEC walking away from the majority of its space.
After the SEC did just that, the landlord had to find new tenants and leased the majority of the building to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Housing Financing Agency.
