According to Naing, the portfolio represents a myriad of real estate investment and/or development opportunities in burgeoning areas of Baltimore. “From their locations adjacent to the campus of The Johns Hopkins University and the Mercy Medical Center and in the historic Mount Vernon neighborhood, these well-positioned investments will continue to enjoy substantial appreciation in the future,” says Naing.
“I look forward to working with potential buyers who will build on RWN’s demonstrated commitment to the City,” he adds.
The RWN Development Group portfolio showcases Richard Naing’s 44-year career in the real estate industry, which started with his creation of Naing International Enterprises in 1973 and which was followed by the founding of RWN Development Group a decade later. His acquisitions have included multi-million dollar properties such as The King Ranch in Granby, Colorado, once owned by the Enron Corporation.
Over the years, developer Naing has become well-known for his development, restoration and preservation efforts, which have earned accolades for work in Washington, DC and beyond. A milestone project in the nation’s capital is 2401 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., which won a 1992 Architectural Institute Award and which continues to be one of the most desirable addresses in Washington, DC. Historic DC area developments include Teddy Roosevelt’s Mansion on 19th and Jefferson and Ulysses Grant’s Home on 1020 16th Street.
Notable, highly regarded residential projects include the conversion of a Chevy Chase apartment building into luxury condominiums, which was named The Louie for Naing’s future wife. His last DC project was The Kalorama Lofts at 1700 Kalorama Road in Adams Morgan, which achieved some of the highest prices on record for condominiums in the District.
Naing moved his company headquarters to Baltimore, Maryland, in 2004 with his purchase of the Boxer Portfolio, which consisted of eight historic buildings in downtown Baltimore, including The Equitable Building and Brown’s Arcade, that have since been converted to hotels, offices, and apartments. He was also the owner of The Jefferson at 101 North Charles Street, which he purchased for $2 million in 2005 and sold six months later for $6 million.
Naing spent the next 12 years investing in Baltimore and its distinctive buildings. He counts among his most rewarding achievements a $7.6 million investment in the redevelopment of the landmark Brexton building, childhood home of Wallis Simpson, which had been abandoned for 25 years. His luxury boutique hotel, The Hotel Brexton, garnered a Baltimore Heritage Preservation Award Award in 2010.
“Many of our projects like The Hotel Brexton have been a labor of love,” explains Naing. “I’m proud of our work to bring the region’s ‘jewels’ back to life and l look forward to bringing the same passion and drive to the next phase of my life.”
Once his Maryland portfolio is sold, Naing plans to retire and sail around the world. The long-time resident of Potomac, Maryland aims to return to his native Myanmar (Burma), where he will use his decades of experience to assist developers in that country. He is already an investor in the development of an oceanfront luxury resort in Myanmar, known as Wind Song.
