(PART 2)

REMINDER:  Bisnow Green Panel & Schmooze TODAY at lunch! At Il Mulino, brought to you by Transwestern, Perkins & Will, and Balfour Beatty. More info.


The fun continues! The cult of lacrosse continues! Just to remind our eagle-eyed readers: We decided on a rule of no repeaters from last year, to show the breadth of talent of the field. But this year's and last year's groups are both invited to celebrate at Pillsbury's rooftop party June 3, sponsored by Reznick Group, Skanksa, Sibdu/eCRE Systems, and WorkSpaces! 


ZUHAIRAH SCOTT, MacFarlane Partners

The 30-year-old UCLA grad and Harvard MBA moved to DC a year ago from MacFarlane's San Fran office where she helped manage underwriting and development oversight for more than $3B in real estate assets, including major mixed-use projects in NYC, the Bay Area, and DC, such as 2M SF, $700M Half Street. Now she's working on plans for a 25,000 seat soccer stadium for D.C. United. She also does big deals for charity, spearheading the firm's matching program. A singer and actress since age five, Zuhairah was also a finalist for the Broadway version of Rent.


DAVID NEUMAN, Trammell Crow

Since 2005, the 30-year-old VP has been involved in developing over 1M SF of office and industrial in the DC area.  He just helped close the $89M sale of a 354SF spec industrial warehouse at Pennsy Drive with Greg Crum in Landover and is securing construction financing for 90 K Street, NE, a 1.3M SF, $150M, 4-phase spec office development that breaks ground in June. The UVA grad and Kellogg MBA also negotiated a 75 year ground lease and managed master planning and the phasing process for the $550M, 2M SF Enhanced Use Lease Project with the Army at Fort Meade. And David does all this on one hour of sleep per night; he and his wife recently had a baby boy.


The 27-year-old  broker has been with CBRE representing office building owners in DC and NoVa since graduating from Georgetown in '03. He currently reps 17 buildings (15 in DC and 2 in Pentagon City), totaling 3.1M SF. A disciple of Vornado's Brendan Owen (who used to be at CB) and CB's Bruce Pascal, Doug counts among his clients Carr Properties, Clark Enterprises, and Opus East. In 2007, the native Baltimorean and LAXer did deals for Carr including Children's Hospital and Maslow Media. He also repped Republic Property at 25 Mass Ave where he, Bruce, and Randy Harrell assisted the AMA, American College of Physicians, and Barr Labs.



Since coming to ING five years ago, the 29-year-old UNC Chapel Hill grad has done underwriting, due diligence, and contract negotiations on deals like  One Metro Center, the Farragut Building, and Metro Park in Springfield. Colleagues say she's "the reason most of ING's acquisitions pass the rigorous tests of the internal investment committee." In the past 12 months she's worked on a JV with Kettler for a billion dollar Pentagon City residential project, and on the acquisition of Verizon Tower for $105M in Fairview Park. When she's not at work, Andy's walking her Cavalier King Charles, Dixie, around Old Town or maybe even fishing. Here, she's pictured on a recent trip to Florida with what she confesses is her biggest catch yet.

BO MENKITI, The Menkiti Group

After founding his own development company just two years ago, the Harvard '99 grad and 30-year-old entrepreneur just completed his biggest project to date: The Ilora, a 21-unit "middle market" condo complex in the Brookland neighborhood of NE DC. Colleagues say he's always possessed the business bug: As a kid, Bo was a dynamite paperboy at age 8, and started a snow-shoveling business at 10, holding a monopoly on it by age 11. Now he's applying his energy to restoring the 12th Street corridor in Brookland to the storied neighborhood it once was. INC.com ranked Bo #3 on its 2007 list of "Coolest Young Entrepreneurs." Realtor Magazine put him on the cover of its "Top 30 Under 30" issue.


ERICA LEATHAM, Stark Meyers Eisler Leatham, LLC

The 33-year-old Florida State grad and GW Law School alum set up her own practice in 2006 as a land use and zoning attorney in Montgomery County. In just the past 12 months she's secured numerous high level land use approvals for regional and national developers, such as Lerner, as well as for established institutions that needed expanded facilities. She's also lobbied on behalf of Combined Properties, among others, for additional rights under the new Master Plans and Zoning Ordinances progressing through the County. When she's not navigating the land use legal maze, you might find her trying to figure out the convoluted plot of ABC's Lost or cheering on the Florida State Seminoles (her 3-year-old daughter even knows their fight song by heart).


ANDREW MCGEORGE, Monday Properties

In the last year, the 31-year-old former lacrosse defenseman at the Naval Academy, with a masters in organizational dynamics from  Penn, has overseen the entire development pipeline for Monday Properties' DC and NYC portfolios (along with Chief Development Officer Tim Helmig). A native of Philly, Andrew's currently focused on developing the new 580k SF, 35-story office tower at 1812 N. Moore St. in Rosslyn, set for LEED Platinum certification; doing conceptual work on a 930k SF mixed-use development two blocks away that'll be Monday's next Rosslyn gig; and helping redevelop a 1927 office building on Park Avenue in NYC that will be turned into rental apartments. When not in the office, chances are you'll find him golfing at Army-Navy, jogging in Clarendon, or sailing in Annapolis. 



The amateur kick boxer and mixed martial artist could certainly hold his own in a scuffle, but we're also impressed that the 32-year-old founder of 3DG (District Design Development Group) is celebrating his 5th year in business with no sign of slowing down. The father of two just broke ground last month on 3400 11th St, a multi-million dollar mixed-use development in Columbia Heights of which he is the owner, developer, architect, and builder. He's also the development manager of the Brookside Town Center in Fauquier County (largest residential development in the county's history) which will boast over 500k SF of commercial, retail, and residential.


JOE CARROL, Lowe Enterprises

The 31-year-old development manager, Harvard JD/MBA, and Florida A&M grad, who has been running Lowe's pre-development and HUD related activities for Tresser Square, recently also took over running development at Fort Totten, and was involved in negotiating the sale of the retail component at CityVista. The Jacksonville native and Renaissance man of real estate writes short stories on the side and plays a mean game of tennis.



The 30-year-old managing director of the Tenant Rep/Law Firm Group and former pro lacrosse player (for the Long Island Lizards) has been with Spaulding & Slye then JLL (after they merged) since graduating from Georgetown. In just the past year he spearheaded the team that won the contract to represent Fairfax County as its real estate advisor, worked on the 31k SF lease for BP America at 1101 New York Ave, and did the 96K SF Drinker Biddle lease extension and expansion at 1500 K. Whenever he has a free weekend, Greg enjoys visiting his family's home in Vermont and skiing at Stratton Mountain.


The 32-year-old Hill, an SVP of JLL's Public Institutions group, holds a BA from Dartmouth and an MBA from Wharton. After being with JLL for the past 11 years, she now leads the client service delivery team for the Army, a $10.4B, 28-project portfolio spanning 20 states and DC. The NYT Crossword junkie and Red Sox fan loves to read, but is also Ms-Fix-It on weekends  around her house.
