Last Night at the Building Museum
Last night, we stopped by the National Building Museum for DCBIA's annual Spring Rendezvous, where we saw Project Management Services' Chris Romney with Sanford Capital's Carter Nowell and Steve Lin. Carter tells us the firm is gearing up to start construction (along with CityPartners) on its 425k SF mixed-use development on top of the Congress Heights Metro. The project is in the PUD and entitlement phase.
Not letting last night's downpour get them down: E Construction Group's Rev. Dr. George Holmes, Knoll's Craig Dean, Bryant Miller Olive's Anitra Androh, and Capitol Engineering Group's Alex Shojaei.
Government work is keeping this group busy: Arup's Geoffrey Eddy, KGD's Mia Settle and Hallie Sherard, Cini Little's Laura Lentz, KGD's Manoj Dalaya, and JLL's Vinita Phonseya. Mia, Hallie, and Manoj say they're working on designs for several federally funded nonprofits, while Laura says her food-service consulting biz has a lot of government and law firm clients.
Gilbane's Liz Cobb and Zarina Reznikov (with Hillmann Consulting's Henry Hillman and Walker & Dunlop's Chris Davis) tell us their firm is finishing construction on the Russian Lounge at the Kennedy Center, which will officially open this Saturday night. (No, it's not made from a corner of the Ukrainian lounge.)
