About WC Smith
We have honed the ability to meld the city's long-term vision for growth with residents' needs and desires as we create communities throughout the region. With fully three-quarters of our 700 employees living and/or working in the District of Columbia, we are committed to the long-term viability and sustainability of the neighborhoods we create and the people who inhabit them.
As a company firmly grounded in the District of Columbia and respected for its community building capabilities, WC Smith enjoys collegial working relationships with city leaders, District agencies, ANC’s, community organizations, and educational institutions.
What sets WC Smith apart from other firms is our holistic approach to community building. We believe it takes more than attractive housing and office buildings to sustain neighborhoods, and over the past 50 years, we have developed a successful model for creating and maintaining healthy communities. We know the importance of communicating with existing residents and stakeholders. We embrace diversity. We recognize the importance of amenities in making a community livable.
We are proud of the fact that we produce quality housing, commercial and retail projects, but we are just as focused on the less tangible, subtler aspects of development such as aesthetics, safety, thoughtful use of space, and creating opportunities for people to interact and feel ownership in their communities.
The building is beautiful with high ceilings and thick walls. It might be old but it is well kept and charming.- Chatham Courts Resident
The location of Chatham Courts cannot be beat! Just a step away from cafes, a grocery store, a hardware store, and many more restaurants and shops are just a block or two beyond that.- Chatham Courts Resident
The staff is wonderful - friendly and always helpful. We have never waited longer than one day to have something fixed in our apartment. It's hard to find that kind of service anywhere.- Chatham Courts Resident
We were so excited to move into this beautiful, spacious apartment. The rooms are huge, the ceilings high, and the light from the large windows is amazing.- Chatham Courts Resident
The office and the maintenance staff really care about the building and it shows.- Chatham Courts Resident
I love living here! Everyone is really friendly and welcoming. There are many residents who have been here for 10+ years and it is easy to see why they stayed.- Chatham Courts Resident
