73. First Potomac Realty Trust

It was a fast and furious 2012 for First Potomac Realty Trust, which began the year on a buying spree but by the end had taken steps to repair its financial standing after revealing a material weakness in the way it assessed its balance sheet that prompted an investigation and the sale of some company assets. First Potomac hired chief financial officer Andrew Blocher to right the ship and shed its interest in 1200 17th St. NW, an office project it had planned with District-based Akridge.


First Potomac owns and plans to redevelop the old Greyhound bus station on First Street NE.
