Chairman in Miami Beach, Florida
Committed to enhancing the nation’s capital, in 2002 Robb LaKritz and his business partner Joshua Adler founded LaKritz Adler Development in Washington, D.C., with a start-up fund of $10,000. In the following years, the company has grown into one of the region’s leading real estate investment, development, and management companies, with a property portfolio valued at $100 million. Robb LaKritz and his firm first focused on projects in the city’s historic Shaw neighborhood, where they restored a 3,000-square-foot plumbing supply shop from a decaying structure into a worthy representation of the historic building it was once. More recently, the company acquired a property from Starbucks Corporation at the corner of Connecticut Avenue and Dupont Circle and renovated the building to its full potential.
