Mind & Media Is Moving
February 2013—After 14 years on Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Mind & Media is moving to the north end of Old Town, Alexandria at the end of May. “We’re moving into a more efficient space for the kind of company we are,” says Mind & Media CEO Marilyn Finnemore. “We’ll miss Del Ray, but Old Town is another walkable community, which was important to us. Alexandria has a lot of great options. You get really spoiled!”
Mind & Media’s new address will be 901 N. Pitt St, Suite 310, in the Waterman Place building. The space is being built out to our specifications and will offer a welcoming place for clients and a fresh new workplace for staff with plenty of Mind & Media charm.
