NAIOP names First Potomac Realty Trust “Firm of the Year”
- November 28, 2012
First Potomac Realty Trust, a Bethesda, Md.-based firm with a sizeable portfolio in Northern Virginia, was named “Firm of the Year” by the Northern Virginia chapter of NAIOP. The award was given during the commercial real estate organization’s annual awards event earlier this month.
The Firm of the Year award is based on many factors, including the example a company sets for its peers, the quality of its work, the role company employees have played in the operation of the chapter, and its overall participation in the community. “The NAIOP Northern Virginia Firm of the Year is not necessarily awarded every year,” said NAIOP Northern Virginia Chairman David Millard of Avison Young. “The members of this company have gone out of their way to help make our NAIOP chapter one of the best in the country.”
First Potomac Realty Trust is a real estate investment trust that focuses on owning, operating, developing and redeveloping office and industrial properties in the greater Washington, D.C., region. Its consolidated portfolio totals about 14 million square feet.
NAIOP Northern Virginia is a chapter of NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, comprised of more than 825 members serving the local Northern Virginia market. NAIOP is an organization for developers, owners and related professionals in office, industrial and mixed-use real estate, with 15,000 members in North America.
