Who we are

Since 1999, the principals of Gragg Cardona Partners LLC (formerly Gragg & Associates LLC) have been at the center of efforts by the District of Columbia and community leaders to revitalize neighborhoods and generate broad based employment and business opportunities, by using public/private partnerships to bring about new investments in housing, commercial space, and community facilities.

For more than two decades Gragg Cardona Partners (GCP) has been supporting and investing in the positive transformation of neighborhoods in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Our sense of purpose, energy, transparency and collaborative character underlay the creation of more than 1,100 units of rental/for sale housing, including nearly 400 affordable units, plus 71,500 square feet of new neighborhood oriented commercial space. 

Many of these residential spaces are the result of partnerships with local governments and or agencies wanting to re-energize neighborhoods, stimulate economic development and empower residents.

Our work has won the support of institutional investors, and national/local lenders. We’re comfortable and experienced partnering with local governments, negotiating win-win outcomes with community stakeholders, layering financial resources and crafting localized land disposition agreements, and developing high quality places for people to live, work, and play. 

From the Ellington Apartments at 13th and U Streets NW, Washington, D.C. to The Dussan Flats in Suitland, MD we are a quality first, people first, values first team whose journey of service and accomplishment continues to the present day.


Our Passion

Our mission is to create innovative and sustainable spaces and places for people to live, work, and play.

We do this with respect for the communities we are a part of. We positively and innovatively engage in shaping and preserving the physical, social, and economic context in which people live. And doing so by contributing our values and knowledge in a fashion that merits respect and considers community interests.
