SAIC’s Leidos to base headquarters in Reston Town Center

McLean-based Science Applications International Corp. is set to announce Monday that it has leased space in Reston Town Center to serve as the new headquarters for Leidos, the larger of the two units that will be created when the government contractor splits later this year or early next.

The company said it has signed a lease for 11951 and 11955 Freedom Drive, which are known as One and Two Freedom Square. About 150 employees are set to move in immediately, and another 450 will move in over time, as renovations are completed, according to the company.

The contracting giant announced last summer that it would split into two public companies — a government services business that will retain the SAIC name and a technology company that will be called Leidos, clipped from the word kaleidoscope.

SAIC has already made plans for the government services unit. The contractor earlier this summer announced it is selling its 18-acre Tysons Corner campus, including four office buildings comprising about 900,000 square feet, a parking garage and surface parking lots, to Bethesda-based real estate firm the Meridian Group.

It said it would lease back two of the buildings for about a year (until the split is completed) and a third for seven years, which will be home to SAIC following the split.
