Buchanan Partners’ predecessor, Buchanan Companies (1978-1998), pioneered developments in the then-emerging markets of Herndon, Ballston, western Alexandria and eastern Loudoun County in Virginia and Frederick County, Maryland. Following in these footsteps, Buchanan Partners has spearheaded commercial and residential development in today’s emerging markets, including southern Loudoun County and western Prince William County in Virginia, and Bowie in Maryland. In these markets, Buchanan has introduced and fostered innovative new generations of commercial buildings such as the LEED Gold Bowie Corporate Center and commercial condominiums, in both flex/industrial and Class A office product types. Buchanan Partners has development experience throughout the Washington Metropolitan Region and is currently active in nine jurisdictions. Buchanan Partners maintains both a strong regional perspective and local community involvement, in addition to the specific project focus that is necessary for a successful real estate development project. This involvement with the region and the community, in addition to the project, has distinguished Buchanan Partners from many of its peers.
