As a company firmly grounded in the District of Columbia and respected for its community building capabilities, WC Smith enjoys collegial working relationships with city leaders, District agencies, ANC’s, community organizations, and educational institutions.
We have honed the ability to meld the city’s long-term vision for growth with residents’ needs and desires as we create communities throughout the region. With fully three quarters of our 700 employees living and/or working in the District of Columbia, we are committed to the long-term viability and sustainability of the neighborhoods we create and the people who inhabit them.
What sets WC Smith apart from other firms is our holistic approach to community building. We believe it takes more than attractive housing and office buildings to sustain neighborhoods, and over the past 40 years we have developed a successful model for creating and maintaining healthy communities. We know the importance of communicating with existing residents and stakeholders. We embrace diversity. We recognize the importance of amenities in making a community livable.
We are proud of the fact that we produce quality housing, commercial and retail projects, but we are just as focused on the less tangible, subtler aspects of development such as aesthetics, safety, thoughtful use of space, and creating opportunities for people to interact and feel ownership in their communities.
