About Us

Shaping Communities
for Decades

Our Mission

Our mission is to revitalize neighborhoods, create value for our investors, and generate new opportunities for communities. We pride ourselves on seamless communication, clear expectations, and an honest, collaborative approach to develop cutting-edge, innovative projects.

Our History

Donohoe Development Company is the development arm of The Donohoe Companies. Over six decades ago, we began a tradition of quality real estate development in the DC metro region. We were one of the first developers to see the potential of vibrant, mixed-use projects that unite office, residential, retail, and other uses. Our vision has helped to shape neighborhoods with core projects such as Georgetown Park and Chevy Chase Pavilion.

Our Developments

Our projects span office, hotel, retail, industrial, residential, and embassy properties in the Washington, DC region. We develop projects in walkable, transit-oriented, and amenity-rich locations. From design to funding to construction, we’re moving forward with our newest projects, transforming communities spanning Wisconsin Avenue in Maryland and DC, in the Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia and in Reston, Virginia.


Our Process

We have the expertise to direct the entire development process from beginning to end, including site evaluation, market research & analysis, detailed cost estimating, project entitlements, design & construction management, debt placement, and project marketing. The success of our projects reflects our skilled leadership in creative problem solving, obtaining approvals, and addressing community concerns. We have resolved some of the most difficult zoning challenges in the region and are thoroughly versed in meeting the requirements of federal, state, and local governments, Wall Street and local neighborhood groups, and commissions.
