New real estate company with social purpose launches in the Nation's Capitol

Emergent officially launches in Washington DC.

We are very proud to officially launch Emergent in Washington DC. This city has seen a tremendous amount of transformation over the course of the past decade, and we are excited to be part of the next era in city-building.

From our office space in the city's Navy Yards, Emergent is now officially open for business in the Nation's Capital.


Start at the beginning


As CEO of Emergent I am extremely proud of our beginnings. When embarking on my graduate studies at Harvard University I knew it would impact my life, but I had no idea I would form such close bonds with my fellow classmates, and just a few years later start a company that I believe has the potential to make a positive impact on the world. My fellow Emergent colleagues and I were all drawn to the common goal of making the world a better place for future generations. We truly believe that developers should have a responsibility to make a positive impact on our world. If we have a social conscience then great things can EMERGE!

Emergent has a strong social purpose at its core and is committed to triple-bottom-line principles that benefit society as a whole. Our intial focus is on "housing affordability" and we firmly believe that if we create mixed-communities, residents will be happier, safer and enjoy a more vibrant lifestyle. This is good for everyone. We want to make a real difference, inspire others to do the same and work with our partners to make innovative projects and lasting change happen.


I look to the future with hope and enthusiasm, as there are many talented professionals out there that have the potential to change our world for the better.


Yours,

Michael Peters

Emergent, CEO
