“The vision to see what the asset, the neighborhood, and indeed the entire city could be and would be with the right leadership to get it there.”
– Douglas Jemal
For three decades, Douglas Development Corporation has garnered redevelopment successes in the District of Columbia, as well as in suburban Virginia and Maryland. Douglas Development has earned a reputation for revitalizing underdeveloped, emerging areas and continues to win praise from local government authorities, community members, neighbors, and the real estate community at large.
Founder and President Douglas Jemal established Douglas Development in 1985. While the company remains a privately operated and family-owned and controlled company, it has since grown into a fully integrated real estate company with over 100 employees, expanding to New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. With a current portfolio of more than 10 million leasable square feet and more than 5 million square feet of developable real estate in the pipeline, Douglas Development is well-established as one of the most dominant and successful real estate developers in the Washington Metropolitan area.
