JKH Holdings joins Microsoft, others at Ashburn’s ‘Smart City’


Officials with Gramercy District, the region's first “smart city,” announced today that JKH Holdings will move its global headquarters to the district. Located at the forthcoming Ashburn Metro Station, Gramercy District is being developed by 22 CityLink.

JKH Holdings is a diversified business conglomerate that delivers engineering, software and manufacturing services to international companies in telecom, health care, industrial, energy and transportation sectors.

In locating at Gramercy District, JKH will reside “where entrepreneurs, businesses, academia and governments can flourish through technology, collaboration and innovation,” according to a news release from 22 CityLink.

“We see numerous opportunities to leverage JKH Holdings’ robust capabilities to speed up development cycles of innovative technologies for our smart cities and our customers,” Minh Le, managing partner of 22 CityLink, said in a prepared statement. “With JKH Holdings, we can quickly create a state-of-the-art product concept, build it, prove it and deliver it. They’re a one-stop shop for building anything we need for our smart city and IoT solutions, keeping up with our fast-paced environment.”

Gramercy District will be 22 CityLink’s first ground-up development located in the Washington Metro area.

The focus of a “smart city,” according to 22 CityLink, is to create a “sustainable model for solving real-world problems through an on-site community of international partners, mid-market companies and Concept Foundry, an immersive education, co-working and startup accelerator environment.”

“This partnership will give us the opportunity to collaborate and create leading-edge solutions, solving today’s problems to build tomorrow’s future,” said Javad Hassan, chairman and founder of JKH Holdings.

JKH Holdings joins Microsoft, Avaya, Center for Innovative Technology, George Washington University, Neon Mobile and FedBid at Gramercy.
