Founded in 1984 by CEO Gary D. Rappaport, the company purchased its first commercial property—a neighborhood shopping center—in Baltimore, MD. Through applied ingenuity, perseverance, time, market knowledge and best-in-class retail operation services, Rappaport soon acquired neighborhood shopping centers in Laurel, MD, Roanoke, VA, Centreville, VA and Washington, D.C. Rappaport grew and stabilized competitive positions for the shopping centers, generating long-term growth for partners, multiplying the number of shopping centers in Rappaport’s portfolio and earning Rappaport a reputation for retail expertise in the region.
Rappaport owns a portion of the Fredericksburg, VA power center known as Central Park, one of the largest centers on the east coast with more than 200 retailers. Over the past 10 years Rappaport has renovated and rebranded the office complex – previously known as Uptown – to the Central Park Corporate Center. Rappaport has invested $2.6 million to renovate and transform the five-building, 228,598-square-foot complex from one focused on restaurant and retail tenants into a professional, class A office park.
