Chevy Chase, Md.—NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, recently announced that The JBG Companies has been selected as the national 2012 Developer of the Year.
The JBG Companies is a premier Chevy Chase, Md.-based investor, owner and developer, that invests almost exclusively in urban-infill, transit-oriented developments—assets that, by virtue of location, physical quality, available amenities or other specific features, possess a sustainable advantage over its competition.
JBG has developed, owned or managed over 30 million square feet of office space, 15,000 multifamily residential units, 5.5 million square feet of retail space and 15 hotel properties totaling over 4,500 rooms. JBG is currently responsible for development/redevelopment opportunities of approximately 8.5 million square feet of office space, 13,200 multifamily residential units, 2.2 million square feet of retail space, and 2,500 hotel rooms throughout the Washington Metropolitan area.
JBG’s investment management success is tied to its consistent efforts to analyze and understand shifting conditions and trends in the marketplace. Being able to quickly recognize and adapt to changes has been vital to achieving above-market returns for investors.
Rather than specializing in one area of real estate development, The JBG Companies has accumulated years of success in developing all product types: office, residential, retail, hotel and mixed-use. Each of these product types has its own division at JBG, led by an expert in that particular discipline. This wider range of expertise is critical to JBG’s success in executing complex mixed-use developments.
NAIOP will present the Developer of the Year award on Wednesday, October 24, at NAIOP’s Development 12: The Annual Meeting for Commercial Real Estate in Washington, D.C.
