BIG welcome to great new sponsor McKeever Services Corp. The region’s premier construction development consulting firm for over 30 years, specializing in regulatory and jurisdictional requirements. Check them out.  Welcome aboard!


That’s how we felt at Teatro Goldoni Friday night as Caps owner Ted Leonsis and Capitol File hosted a salute to the NHL’s MVP who came back from Toronto the night before bagging so many trophies they needed extra planes.


It turned out there were even more prizes for Alex Ovechkin: He got to be in a picture we took of him with Niki Germano, even if she had to let her father (CBRE regional head John Germano) tag along.


Also on hand: Bob and Charlotte Kettler, center, mingling with old-school techies (ClearSpring President and former Vonage head Jay Rappaport and FBR founder Russ Ramsey).


And former Redskin Darryl Pounds with friend Kheira Benkreira. As loyal readers know, Darryl’s now in commercial real estate via his firm Pounds Properties.



We also went late last week to see our old friend Don Wood, head of Federal Realty Investment Trust (in glasses, holding scissors with Montgomery County Exec Isiah Leggett) open up “Bethesda Lane,” a cool alley with 43k SF of retail between Elm and Bethesda Aves.  It's got 180 luxury apartment and—most important—244 new parking spaces!


Don’t worry, Carr Properties’ Christian Clifford was in the ladies room with Cassidy’s Marty Almquist at Thursday’s Arlington Plaza broker lunch only because we requested a picture of them there to show it off: Carr bought the 193k SF building on 15th Street from Vornado last October and has spent over $4M on base building renovations (via HITT Construction), upgrading bathrooms, HVAC, lobby, garage, etc. Though they have a 70K SF deal pending signature next week with a yet-to-be-named DC healthcare organization, the building has space available. You think they give brokers a free lunch just for fun? 


We didn’t feel right just showing the bathroom, so we also snapped Cassidy’s Paul Darr and Harold Jacobsen, and Randall Hagner’s Steve Beckner and George Voris showing off the panoramic city views from the 11th floor.



Here’s a snap from the Professional Women in Construction’s golf clinc the other day at Oak Marr—but what are two guys doing in this picture?? Thirty women were prepping for PWC’s first tournament to be held later this summer at Bretton Woods, organized by lawyer Martha Perkins.
