Re:         HC Government Realty Trust, Inc. (the “Company”)
Amendment No. 5 to Offering Statement on Form 1-A
Filed November 2, 2016
File No. 024-10563
On behalf of the Company, I respectfully request that the qualification date of the offering statement be accelerated and that the offering statement be declared qualified November 7, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. ET, or as soon thereafter as is reasonably practicable.
In making this request, the Company acknowledges the following:
should the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) or the staff, acting pursuant to delegated authority, declare the filing qualified, it does not foreclose the Commission from taking any action with respect to the filing;
the action of the Commission or the staff, acting pursuant to delegated authority, to declare the filing qualified does not relieve the Company from its full responsibility for the adequacy and accuracy of disclosure in the filing; and
the Company may not assert staff comments and/or qualification as a defense in any proceeding initiated by the Commission or any person under the federal securities law of the United States.
Very truly yours,
/s/ Robert R. Kaplan      
Robert R. Kaplan, as Secretary
