Gorove/Slade Associates, Inc. has provided services to Vornado Realty Trust (previously Charles E. Smith and now JBG Smith) in Crystal City, VA for over a decade.  Our role as transportation consultant has been instrumental in the redevelopment and revitalization of this major mixed-used commercial and residential area.
