Wisconsin Place Due Diligence
The Wisconsin Place, located on the border of Montgomery County and the District of Columbia, is an 8-acre urban center. The property consists of 300,000 SF of retail, 450,000 SF of office space, 300,000 SF of residential, a 17,200 SF community center, and a multi-level underground 1,600-space parking garage. In order to successfully plan the project, significant due diligence services were required. Because of its location on the border of Montgomery County and the District of Columbia, the biggest challenge in the process was the coordination between the various jurisdictional agencies.
