Comcast has inked the deal on a long-term lease for 20,000 square feet of office space at 300 New Jersey Ave. NW in Washington, D.C. Washington Business Journal reports that the cable company's federal government affairs office--you know, the lobbyists, regulatory group, public policy group, and its support staff--will move from its current base of operations on Pennsylvania Ave. NW to the bigger space.
The new 10-story building is much closer to Capitol Hill--a better point from which to continue convincing federal regulators to approve that little NBCU merger.
