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.
Great apartment - very quiet and love that the utilities are included in the rent. It's also at a convenient location - Metro station and supermarket being nearby.- Clarence House Resident
We have lived in Clarence House for nearly a year and have been very impressed with quality of the apartment, the office and maintenance staff.- Clarence House Resident
The location is excellent- a seven minute walk from Van Ness metro, and close to many grocery stores, parks, and an increasing number of good restaurants. A great value for the rent we currently pay.- Clarence House Resident
Clarence House is an absolute gem. We lived there for three years and would have stayed much longer had it not been for a move to a new city. Our apartment was spacious, functional, and had plenty of storage and an updated kitchen.- Clarence House Resident
The community at Clarence House is so warm and friendly. The neighbors are all very inviting to the community.- Clarence House Resident
We've really enjoyed living at the Clarence House. Before we moved in, we looked at a lot of Connecticut Avenue apartments, and CH had the unbeatable combination of spacious floor plans, tons of natural light, and a recently remodeled kitchen.- Clarence House Resident
