Our HistoryOur Core Values
Rex Allen, founder of Pointe Property Group, is responsible for the company’s strategic vision.
Prior to the formation of Pointe Property Group (formerly Commercial Management), Mr. Allen gained real estate experience from his involvement in the acquisition and construction of over one million square feet of industrial space in five states with Imperial Cup Corporation. A closely held family owned business, Imperial Cup Corporation met with great success during the Allen family’s years of ownership. The family sold the cup business in 1989 to International Paper, Inc, and found new success in the real estate industry.
Pointe Property Group’s premier development is The Pointe Centre, but Pointe has developed and invested in office, retail, and industrial space throughout the Chattanooga area. In addition to its contributions to the Chattanooga market, Pointe Property Group has partnered with the Allen Group to develop office, industrial, and inland port projects in California and Texas for nationally recognized clients.
The principals of Pointe Property Group formed their own general contracting firm, Pointe General Contractors, in 2003 to perform tenant buildouts and multi story office buildings. Pointe General Contractors has become a well respected full service general contracting firm licensed throughout the region.
Pointe Property Group’s disciplined business practices allowed for continued success through the recent market downturn, and Pointe Property Group is well positioned to continue to deliver quality office, industrial, and retail space for its clients.
