History

Founded in 2014, Lantian is one of the fastest-growing real estate development companies in Washington, DC.


Based in Bethesda, Maryland, Lantian Development launched in August 2014 as a privately held real estate investment and development company. We are  an affiliate of a diversified, privately-held foreign real estate company with a desire to invest in real estate in the Washington, DC region.

Rapidly Acquiring over 5 Million Square Feet of Development Potential

Since 2014, Lantian has acquired six assets, totaling over 400 acres, with the potential for over 6 million square feet of commercial and residential redevelopment. Our diversified portfolio includes residential, retail, hospitality, office, and land for future development projects. These properties are located in Maryland’s Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties and the City of Alexandria in Virginia.

We favor developments with long-term value.

Our primary interest is investing and developing across all real estate asset classes in the DC metro area, especially opportunities that may create long-term value. We seek to continue building a professionally managed portfolio of diversified assets across residential, commercial, and unimproved land holdings.

New Affiliate Formed in 2017

In our effort to continue seeking promising new investment opportunities, in January 2017 Lantian announced the creation of Lantian Partners, a wholly owned affiliate that will become a District Certified Business Enterprise (CBE). This new affiliate will seek to expand the way Lantian invests its capital, allowing it to more efficiently evaluate and diversify new potential real estate investments.
