Developing Properties

Developing Our Community

From the beginning

Commitment is our foundation

Every WC Smith project begins with this commitment: we develop products that make a lasting impact on the social, environmental and financial success of our team, our partners and our communities. For more than 50 years, we have been driven to deliver a diverse portfolio of top-quality residential and commercial properties in each quadrant of, and for all families in, Washington, DC.

Community is our Core

For WC Smith, development doesn’t start with the building. Instead, it starts with understanding how that building, be it subsidized affordable or top-end luxury, low-density or high-density mixed use, will transform and benefit the neighborhood. Our collaborative approach to problem solving and commitment to community building has made us one of the most active real estate developers in emerging markets throughout the District of Columbia.

We’ve long expanded traditional real estate boundaries by partnering with governments, nonprofits and allied businesses to offer the best residential, retail and commercial experience for the communities we serve.
