The NDC team is a tight-knit group of highly experienced real estate development professionals. With its intense focus on acquisition, development management, and construction management, NDC has a proven track record of independently developing catalytic projects in the District. These projects are consistently developed in a timely and cost-effective manner. The company combines tight control of project resources with an absolute commitment to delivering top quality in everything it does.
NDC is a community based development company, and its ability to work closely with community groups is one of the company’s major strengths. The company has a long history of working with residents, elected officials, community groups, local businesses, and others to produce projects that are strongly supported by the community. The company is proud of its track record of working with existing residents and tenant groups through its Building Together program.
NDC’s total focus is on building neighborhoods, and the company has developed an innovative system called Strategic Neighborhood Development. This approach systematically identifies neighborhoods with high potential for revitalization and follows up with strategic, long-term investments to augment and participate in their success. Existing neighborhood resources, both human and architectural, are respected, preserved and strengthened.
