John Wilkinson, among the “new guard” of Washington business

About the company: Based in Chevy Chase, the real estate investment management firm started nearly five years ago with seed funding from The JBG Cos. and counts 4 million square feet in its portfolio.

Why he makes this list: Wilkinson has positioned Boundary Cos. as a developer that’s making a lot moves without making a lot of noise. The JBG and Meridian Group exec is betting on more emerging neighborhoods — redevelopment of a Children’s National Health System clinic in Shaw, a $16 million land purchase within walking distance of the Rhode Island Avenue-Brentwood Metro station, a turnaround of the old Nabisco bakery at 327 S St. NE and a mixed-use project with JBG Smith in Eckington Place, where they plan to bring a Brooklyn Boulders climbing gym. Boundary is also taking the long view with an Eisenhower Avenue property it purchased in Alexandria last year.
