WC Smith maintains a partnership with third party institutional equity investors who seek a return through acquisition, development, brokerage and management of real estate.
The company’s diverse experience with developing, financing and managing commercial, retail and residential projects makes it an attractive investment opportunity. The firm is also recognized for its vision and leadership in emerging opportunities, as evidenced by its early entrance in the District of Columbia’s Capitol Riverfront submarket. When Smith Co. began to assemble parcels in the market in the early 1990’s, it was a blighted and crime plagued sector of the city. Today it enjoys DC’s most rapid rate of redevelopment.
WC Smith has a solid history of community building through foresight, master planning, and consensus building. The company is especially adept at forming strategic alliances to navigate community and regulatory issues for the successful completion of a project. Its core business is Washington, DC, which is a far more stable market than most with excellent job growth, a highly educated employment base, increasing rents and a vigorous inner city renaissance.
