A real estate company that has renovated several properties in the city in recent years attracted national recognition for its work this weekend.
Washington Street Properties, formed in 2007 by Brian H. Murray, was recognized as the 2014 Real Estate Company of the Year at the 12th annual American Business Awards on Friday in Chicago.
“Three other real estate companies were selected as finalists, so we knew we were in the final four, but it was definitely a big surprise when we won,” Mr. Murray said.
The company has purchased and rehabilitated a number of buildings in and around Watertown, including the lower level of the building that houses Convergys on Arsenal Street, the Lincoln Building on Public Square, the Solar Building, the former Hospice Foundation of Jefferson County Inc. building at 425 Washington St., the Top of the Square plaza and the Palmer Street and College Heights apartments.
Mr. Murray said the company’s approach to real estate development, which often involves renovating neglected properties and leasing them to startups and small businesses, has set it apart from the competition and helped its success. [Read more...]
