    • About

      BECO owns and manages over 7 million square feet of commercial property in Metropolitan Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Illinois. Founded in 1986 by Dennis Berman, Gary Berman, Michael David Epstein and Jeffrey Lee Cohen, BECO has come a long way from our humble beginnings when our portfolio consisted of 8,000 square feet and the only three employees were headquartered in a basement office.
      After growing for 25 years in Metropolitan Washington, D.C., BECO expanded geographically. In March 2010, we transformed a 1.9 million square foot corporate campus in Charlotte, N.C. into Innovation Park. Following that success, we embraced a 1.2 million square foot property in Libertyville, IL and began creating Innovation Park Lake County. Chris Epstein, a 25-year BECO veteran, joined the partnership in 2010 and stewards the South and Midwest divisions.
      BECO brings distressed commercial property back to life and creates extraordinary workplace environments. Renovations are designed and constructed; experiences are introduced; communities are transformed and the potential within each BECO project is actualized.
      BECO team members are fully engaged in the nurturing of our customers and the execution of our principles. BECO has been recognized three times over the past decade as one of the Top Ten Best Places to Work by The Washington Post, and in 2015, the first and only Workplace Solutions Organization (including construction, property management and leasing firms) to be granted 5-Star Diamond Certification by the American Association of Hospitality Sciences.
