Is gentrification and displacement inevitable? Or can we revitalize our cities and keep our communities strong at the same time? Monty Hoffman argues that cities aren’t museums and change is inevitable, but believes there’s a new approach to development that is centered around community, sharing examples from The Wharf in DC. Monty Hoffman formed PN Hoffman in 1993 with a single townhouse conversion, and over the past 24 years has built the company into a market leader of real estate development in the Washington, D.C., metro area.

PN Hoffman is known for its longstanding track record of successful projects that enhance communities. A design-forward vision, a strong community commitment and a long-term quality perspective have earned PN Hoffman a sterling reputation. The results have revitalized entire neighborhoods and brought new life to communities. Today, PN Hoffman is developing several mixed use projects throughout the region including The Wharf, a $2.5 billion world-class waterfront and the largest transformative development in Washington, D.C.
