Development

Competence, Perseverance, Leadership
Akridge’s Development team is dedicated to building iconic properties of the highest quality that help define their neighborhoods. Our development portfolio includes place-making projects such as Gallery Place, The Homer Building, 1200 Seventeenth Street, and Burnham Place. Our projects have helped transform the landscape of DC for over four decades and will continue to do so for decades to come.

Akridge’s Development team expertly navigates the entitlement, permitting, and delivery process to ensure that our properties deliver on time and on budget. Each project we deliver is the culmination of careful research, thoughtful planning, and meticulous attention to detail. We work hand-in-hand with our Acquisitions team to help identify what projects to pursue, partner with our Design and Construction team to include innovative operating systems in all our properties, and collaborate with our Leasing and Property Management teams to ensure we include the amenities today’s Clients want most. In doing so, we ensure that our properties create lasting value for our Clients.

Akridge has worked on some of the most complex projects in the Washington Metropolitan area, including historic preservation projects, sustainable office buildings, mixed-use developments, and public-private partnerships. Our properties have earned numerous regional and national awards and in 2012 we were named developer of the year by NAIOP. Our respect for people and the places where they work and live drives us to develop properties that become destinations in and of themselves.

The following projects serve as examples of our Development experience.
