Other notable projects include a town center redevelopment adjacent to the Southwest Waterfront Metro, Prince George’s County, Prince George’s Plaza revitalization.

They have also played an active role in the Washington, D.C. community - working with organizations such as the Autism Speaks, Sasha Bruce Youthwork, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Kennedy Center, Arena Stage, Hope for Henry, American University, and Medstar Hospital among others. Company executives and employees are also actively involved in leadership roles across local commercial real estate organizations and groups such as the City First Foundation, AOBA, AICPA, JDRF, ULI, CREW and NAIOP DC|MD.

The Bernstein Companies have demonstrated long standing support for our Chapter through continued Gold Chapter Sponsorship and participation as mentors in Gear Up for Year Up. The firm’s Vice President of Development, Gregory Rooney, is also actively involved as a Board Member, a Capital Challenge case competition judge, a founding member of the Leadership Committee and a coach in the annual Year Up event.
