2017 TrendSetters

Muriel Bowser
Mayor, Washington, D.C.

Muriel Bowser was sworn in as Washington, D.C.’s mayor in January 2015 and from 2007 to 2012 served as chairwoman of the Committee on Economic Development as part of the DC Council. Mayor Bowser has expanded opportunity across the District by strengthening job-training programs and attracting and retaining jobs in the city. As of the first quarter of 2016, there are burgeoning projects across the city that will eventually deliver 32,000 new jobs. The city is gaining an estimated 1,000 net residents every month, and the population is the highest it’s been in 40 years.

Under Bowser’s leadership, the District secured 66 acres of the Walter Reed Campus from the U.S. Army for development, which will create over three million square feet of residential, office and retail space and bring nearly 5,000 jobs to the city.

Because of her work, the city also passed legislation to build the new DC United soccer stadium, which will create nearly 900 job opportunities for District residents and is expected to attract one million annual new visitors per year and spur more than $1.6 billion in total economic activity.

Mayor Bowser is committed to producing, protecting and preserving affordable housing. In her first budget, she devoted an historic $100 million to the Housing Production Trust Fund, putting an unprecedented number of affordable housing units into the pipeline.

Thanks to Mayor Bowser, Washington, D.C., is the economic engine of the metropolitan region and has one of the strongest local economies in the country. For her hard work and commitment to Washington, D.C.’s economic growth, we are pleased to honor Mayor Muriel Bowser as this year’s TrendSetter of the Year.

PN Hoffman was one of the first developers to revitalize the 14th Street Corridor, Logan Circle and Adams Morgan. The company was also on the forefront of sustainability, having developed the first LEED® certified residential high-rise in The District – The Alta – years before environmental considerations were commonplace.

PN Hoffman has been named among Smart CEO’s Washington Future 50, recognizing the future of the region’s economy, and Hoffman has been named as one of Washington Business Journal’s Power 100, a list of the area’s most influential, news-making business leaders.
