660 North Capitol Street NW
Over the last 40 years, the Republic Family of Companies has developed approximately 30 million square feet of real estate (across all categories: multi-family, office, retail, hotel, and institutional) representing an investment at a cost of over $9 billion. It currently has more than $2 billion of new projects under construction and development, many of which are Transit-Oriented Developments (TODs), in top U.S. commercial and residential markets including Washington, D.C. SMSA, Denver, Philadelphia, San Jose/San Francisco/Silicon Valley markets, and the Southeast. In addition, Republic has initiated a national development program in conjunction with the YMCA and various Veteran’s Associations for the redevelopment and development of their facilities across the United States.

Republic has executed over 35 private/public sector projects, many of them in partnership with city transit authorities, colleges/universities, and churches, and is now working on a number of multi-hundred-million-dollar developments in major cities around the U.S. with millions of square feet in its development pipeline. An example of this, among others, is the selection of Republic as the developer of a 3-million- square-foot $2 billion public/private sector mixed-use, Transit-Oriented Development at one of the major transit networks in Charlotte, North Carolina (one of the fastest growing cities in the country).

Additionally, Republic’s projects include the development of a wide range of signature and monumental commercial properties such as the completed Washington Harbour, Georgetown Park, Market Square, Republic Square I and II, the Ronald Reagan Building on Pennsylvania Avenue (over 3 million square feet and the country’s second largest building) developed by the principals of Republic, as well as the Portals, a 5-phase, 3-million-square-foot project which includes the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in greater Washington, D.C. with an aggregate market value in excess of $2 billion. This public/private sector partnership with the District of Columbia Government is the largest private sector project in the City of Washington, D.C.

Republic is also presently acquiring and developing over 1,000 units per annum of multi-family projects which include “value-added” investments and “stick built” projects in the Washington, D.C. SMSA, the Mid-Atlantic area (including Raleigh and Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Richmond and Tidewater, Virgina), as well as the southeast and southern part of the United States (Jacksonville, Orlando, and Melbourne in central Florida), with plans to accelerate development over the coming year.

Recently completed construction projects include the 550,000 square foot Portals V residential building (1331 Maryland Avenue S.W.) which is adjacent to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C. (2019). This signature, luxury 373-unit rental apartment project looks over the Jefferson Memorial, with views of the Potomac River, the National Mall, Arlington Cemetery, the Lincoln Memorial, and the U.S. Capitol with estimated project costs of $230 million.

Another example of a current transaction is Republic’s $330 million financing of 445 12th Street, S.W., in Washington, D.C. for a lease with the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation for their 431,000 square foot Federal Headquarters in this 609,000 square foot Class A office building.

Republic’s financial capacity is deep, and the company has enjoyed relationships representing billions of dollars with major lenders, such as insurance companies, pension funds, private equity firms, and real estate investment trusts (REITs).
