DLW provides project management and development services to client-owners who have well-located real estate assets, but limited time to advance those assets through the often complex redevelopment process. Land use and economic planning services are at the core of DLW services, and the company works tirelessly to assist clients with the preparation of implementable strategies which result in the attraction of new development, businesses and jobs.
Since the year 2000, new investments, which are the result of teamwork and strategic work by DLW leadership, total over $16 billion. This remarkable success includes over 16,000 new affordable and mixed income housing units, 1.5 million square feet of retail including six grocery stores, two new live theaters, and over 12 acres of parks.
Capitol Gateway (before)
Forty acres of distressed public housing in northeast Washington has been redeveloped with new mixed-use residential and retail. The development is financed through HUD HOPE VI and local funding. DLW leadership provided site planning and urban design review for this transit oriented development project. DLW significantly increased the site's connectedness to the surrounding neighborhoods and, where possible, relocated parking to the rear.

These businesses are representative of a much larger contingency of new venues.
