About WC Smith
We have honed the ability to meld the city's long-term vision for growth with residents' needs and desires as we create communities throughout the region. With fully three-quarters of our 700 employees living and/or working in the District of Columbia, we are committed to the long-term viability and sustainability of the neighborhoods we create and the people who inhabit them.
As a company firmly grounded in the District of Columbia and respected for its community building capabilities, WC Smith enjoys collegial working relationships with city leaders, District agencies, ANC’s, community organizations, and educational institutions.
What sets WC Smith apart from other firms is our holistic approach to community building. We believe it takes more than attractive housing and office buildings to sustain neighborhoods, and over the past 50 years, we have developed a successful model for creating and maintaining healthy communities. We know the importance of communicating with existing residents and stakeholders. We embrace diversity. We recognize the importance of amenities in making a community livable.
We are proud of the fact that we produce quality housing, commercial and retail projects, but we are just as focused on the less tangible, subtler aspects of development such as aesthetics, safety, thoughtful use of space, and creating opportunities for people to interact and feel ownership in their communities.
The location is amazing - at the mouth of Meridian Hill Park and walking distance from popular restaurants/bars. I definitely plan on renewing my lease.- Wakefield Hall Resident
I had nothing but great dealings with the staff in the building and corporate staff. I wish there was a WC Smith building I could move into in my new location!- Wakefield Hall Resident
A quiet apartment building that is in a terrific location. This is my second WCS building and I will look to rent in another if I decide to move.- Wakefield Hall Resident
HUGE windows with lots of light, which I love. It's an old building, and comes with an old building look and feel, but I love it...it has character.- Wakefield Hall Resident
The management of this building couldn't be any better. They're courteous, responsive, and caring, which in my book goes a long way in DC.- Wakefield Hall Resident
