In 2014, Kate Curll, PE helped open Bohler DC. In the years since, Kate has supported its growth, having quadrupled in staff size, with a fierce commitment to helping her clients and employees succeed.
As a new Associate, Kate will guide her team in identifying and acting on new opportunities for real estate owners and developers. She will also focus on strengthening and growing Bohler DC's operations. "I'm focused on developing our staff and their technical skills, as well as attracting top talent," Kate says. "Our clients need a trusted partner who can keep their projects moving forward. I want to expand and elevate our team so we can continue delivering on that need."
Collaborating Throughout the Industry
As a respected member of D.C.'s commercial real estate industry, Kate consistently reinforces Bohler's unique culture and strengthens our ability to keep people and projects moving forward. Kate represents the development community through the D.C. Building Industry Association (DCBIA), co-leading a working group that collaborates with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT). Through regular meetings, the committee's goal is to align the stakeholders and find opportunities to streamline design and approval processes.
Kate has also served on DCBIA's Public Policy Regulations committee, helping to review the D.C. Comprehensive Plan and providing feedback on behalf of the development community.
Kate's design work can be seen throughout the ongoing revitalization of D.C.'s Union Market. From one of the first projects at 4th and Florida called The Edison, to the several projects that are under construction and more currently in design, Kate's team has been influential in the neighborhood's redevelopment. By looking at the big picture and understanding the overall infrastructure improvements, Kate helps developers work together for the success of the entire Union Market area.
Through her relationships with various owners, developers, and review agencies, Kate moves projects forward through a rezoning process called Planned Unit Development (PUD). Most of the properties in the area are zoned industrial, so this process is required to rezone them for mixed-use, residential, and retail.
Kate helps lead Bohler DC's Women's Professional Network, an employee resource group committed to being a catalyst for change in the firm. Through the group, she has helped provide a variety of networking and professional development opportunities for young women at Bohler DC and serves as a mentor and role model. Through Kate's efforts with the network, she has played an integral part in making Bohler DC a more inclusive organization.
