Mr. Gingles has been engaged with the Gould Family on the development of Konterra, a 2,200-acre mixed-use development situated in Prince George's and Montgomery Counties, straddling Interstate 95 in Maryland near the Intercounty Connector.
Mr. Gingles worked with County and State officials to obtain approvals for the Conceptual Site Plan, Preliminary Plan of Subdivision and a Detailed Site Plan for the 132-acre core, as well as assisting in the negotiation of millions of dollars in public and private transportation infrastructure required for the project.
Since 1995, Mr. Gingles has worked with County officials and local residents to address myriad issues including historic preservation, traffic and environmental concerns in order to obtain the necessary conceptual site plan and preliminary plan of subdivision approvals for National Harbor, the largest multi-use project on the East Coast.
In the ensuing years, Mr. Gingles’ persuasive arguments before local community organizations and County officials were pivotal in negotiating public financing, minority business issues, liquor licensing practices, and the subsequent addition of 2,500 luxury residential units not included in the initial plans.
In the late 1990s, Mr. Gingles worked on the land use and zoning approvals which allowed for the development of the Berman Family’s New Carrollton property (MetroView), including the vertical construction of the 1.2 million square foot IRS facility that exists there today. In addition to providing land use and zoning counsel for the 2001 construction of a 325,000 square foot built to suit office building for Computer Sciences Corporation, Mr. Gingles implemented processes to expedite the issuance of its permits and construction, which resulted in Berman Enterprises delivering the building ahead of schedule and on budget.
