WILlCO RESIDENTIAL


Gary Cohen is a third generation local developer. Cohen’s grandfather, William “Bill” Cohen founded Willco Investments in the early 1960’s, as a vehicle to purchase real estate in the Washington Metro area. His first purchase was a vacant piece of ground on the corner of 20th and L Street NW, which he developed into an office building called The Vanguard, and leased it to the government.  By the 1970’s, properties held by Willco Investments included retail, commercial and industrial space, including hotels and shopping centers. Cohen’s father, Richard S. Cohen, entered the business at a very young age and was immediately drawn toward construction. In the 1970’s, Richard founded Willco Construction and became one of the largest general contractors in the area. Willco Companies, the successor of Willco Construction, currently develops and manages more than 6 million square feet of office, retail and industrial space. As his father has done so successfully, Gary continues to expand the reputable Willco name.

Running on the Wall was created by my husband and I. We are both avid runners and our lives are all about running and being healthy. My husband has completed 15 marathons and finished the Boston marathon in a quick 3:08 minutes! We took our inspirations and invented a product that is a new, fashionable way to show off your racing bibs and medals. We design wooden displays for your medals and race bibs that have a great home décor style. We are happy to share our leading invention with you all runners and athletes. Our “green” products are made of recycled material as much as possible: water paint, mdf recycle sources wood, non-chemical varnish… My husband and I feel that by making a little difference along with everyone else, it will create the huge difference that we are all waiting for in this world. We love to play with mantra when we run and know the power of the mind… so we have recently added it to our collection. Enjoy it is really inspiration and motivational! We enjoy making our products and are very thankful for all of the people that love our displays. www.runningonthewall.com
