“The addition of Stan Wall to our D.C. office strengthens the firm’s capacity to enhance the quality of urban life across the Capitol region.”

– John Alschuler, Chairman


HR&A is pleased to welcome Stan Wall as a Partner in our Washington D.C. office. Stan brings over 20 years of public-private real estate experience in the Washington Metro Area market. His past experience as a private developer, public sector official, and consultant will provide value, creativity, and strategic insight for our clients in the mid-Atlantic and surrounding areas. We are thrilled to have him join us in D.C.


The Washington Metro Area has been the beneficiary of significant economic and population growth over recent years. However this growth presents challenges in the form of rising housing costs and congested road and transit infrastructure. As he has throughout his career in D.C., Stan plans to continue to work with jurisdictions and developers across the region in helping to advance initiatives centered on smart growth, transit-oriented development, and economic development.


“These efforts will include creative strategies that incorporate public-private partnerships and innovative financing. HR&A has a history of taking on the most challenging and unique opportunities in these areas, and I hope to bring this broader expertise to assist clients facing similar challenges.”

– Stan Wall, Partner


Prior to joining HR&A, Stan was the Director of Real Estate and Station Planning at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). In this role, he reinvigorated the agency’s transit oriented development program by helping them leverage their transit infrastructure to support housing and economic development. Earlier in his career, Stan founded Wall Development Group, a Washington D.C.-based real estate development and advisory services firm focused on public-private partnerships and mixed-use, urban infill in emerging development areas.


For over thirty years, HR&A has provided strategic advisory services for some of the most complex neighborhood, downtown, campus, and regional development projects across North America and abroad. HR&A’s work in the Washington D.C. region builds on a long track record of supporting the successful implementation of projects that enhance urban life in the District. Currently we are supporting the Master Development Plan for Union Station, where we are the lead economic advisor for the plan. Additionally, HR&A created the redevelopment plan and assisted in the developer solicitation for what is now CityCenterDC; we structured the transaction that allowed for the purchase of the Newseum site; and we led the planning and implementation of the Anacostia Waterfront’s most successful new neighborhood: Capitol Riverfront.


With Stan joining the firm, we look forward to continuing to support the economic development and real estate goals of our clients in Washington D.C. and nationally. Learn more about Stan’s background on our website. He can be reached as of August 31 at
