DGS Properties

Reeves Center

DGS carries out a broad range of real estate management functions. In addition to managing capital improvement and construction programs for a variety of District government agencies, DGS also:

  • executes real property acquisitions by purchase or lease.
  • disposes of property through sale, lease or other authorized method.
  • manages space in buildings and adjacent areas.
  • provides building management services for facilities owned or operated by the District.

The portfolio division of DGS provides multiple services to both District agencies and its constituents. Portfolio both manages and secured over three million square feet of contracted Lease space for 43 agencies throughout all eight wards of the District.

On an ongoing basis Portfolio is responsible for locating and negotiating a diversity of space needs such as:

  • office
  • warehouse
  • parking
  • human service demands, such as shelters

Portfolio is not just limited to providing services to District agencies as they also provide services to our constituents through programs like Eastern Market and the out lease program. Eastern Market is entirely managed by the portfolio division who secures vendors and provides activates on weekends and nights. The out lease program is a program that portfolio monitors on behalf of the District, such as the food courts at One Judiciary Square (OJS) and leasing out space that is district owned.

By working together, DGS helps agencies move to new and more efficient workplaces.
