Everything You Need to Know About
Ray Ritchey

One of the most trusted and beloved figures in DC real estate, Ray Ritchey (second from right, with JBG's Rob Stewart, Vornado/Charles E Smith's Mitchell Schear, and Cassidy Turley's Bill Collins) heads Boston Properties’ national acquisitions and development. Since joining the company in 1980, Ray has been directly responsible for over 25M SF of building and leasing in the DC region. His signature deals include NASA’s HQ, the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building, the Office the Controller of the Currency, the US International Trade Commission, the NIH Clinical Research Center, and leases with many of the country’s biggest law firms including DLA Piper, Latham & Watkins and Akin Gump. Notable ground-up projects include 901 New York Avenue NW, erected in 2005 with 540k SF of space, and 2200 Pennsylvania Avenue (aka Square 54), with 400k SF for offices, 333 residential units and a Whole Foods, opened in 2011. A former navy serviceman, Ray got his start in real estate in the 1970s  as a tenant rep with Coldwell Banker (now CBRE), which led him to working on negotiations with his eventual recruiter, BP’s Mort Zuckerman. In 2013, Ray was the recipient of ULI Washington’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.
