About Keener-Squire Properties

Keener-Squire Properties has been a leading developer, owner and manager of luxury apartments and condominiums in northwest Washington, DC since Gary Squire and the late Claude Keener founded the company in 1984.  The company has successfully developed 34 projects totaling over 2,670 rental units and for-sale condominiums, ranging in size from 4 units to 304 units.

Keener-Squire Properties started by developing small condominium buildings in Dupont Circle.  In the early 1990s, the company began developing and managing larger rental apartment buildings.  Although the company has continued to develop condominium projects, the development, ownership and management of rental apartment communities has been the company’s main focus for over two decades.  The development portfolio comprises a mix of both new construction and extensive renovations.  Keener-Squire Properties has substantial in-house construction experience and capabilities, and self-performs its redevelopment projects.

In addition to conventional purchase and sale transactions, the company has a great deal of experience and success partnering with religious institutions in the development of their property, and working with tenant organizations through the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA).  Keener-Squire Properties has executed nine separate developments through TOPA, totaling over 1,300 apartments and condominium units.

Keener-Squire Properties self-manages its buildings through its management company, Keener Management, Inc.  The company currently owns and manages over 1,900 rental apartments in Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, 14th Street, Woodley Park and Columbia Heights.
