Our History

Our Core Values
Pointe Property Group (PPG) was formed in 1990 and is a privately held commercial real estate development and investment company committed to excellence. PPG is a full service real estate firm committed to the development of our class “A” office, retail and industrial properties.

HHeadquartered in Chattanooga, TN, Pointe Property Group has real estate interests in California, Georgia, Tennessee, and Texas. PPG has a strong local commitment to community revitalization and the on going success of Chattanooga’s rebirth. A commitment to taking risks and bringing new opportunities to the community drives PPG to take on bold challenges such as developing Chattanooga’s first class “A” suburban office park with excellent access, full service facilities, and beautifully landscaped grounds at the Pointe Centre.

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.


Make a Difference
Our goal is to develop first class business environments that are conducive to increased employee recruitment and rentention, improved fiscal performance, and corporate long term success.

Pointe Property Group’s wellbeing is based on the prosperity of the community. The success of a community is due to the willingness of countless individuals and organizations that take risks in hopes of providing new and improved features that will attract people from all over the world to the area. It is that commitment to risk taking and bold initiative that brings new opportunities to the community that drives Pointe Property Group to take on such challenges.

Community Involvement has always been a cornerstone of our approach to business. Rex Allen’s philosophy is that in order to be successful, you must be a strong supporter of the local communities you serve. This has been an ongoing tradition, as members of the Allen family have continually been generous partners to the communities in which they do business.

A few of the organizations we support locally are, The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, The Chattanooga Zoo, The Children’s Home/Chambliss Shelter and the Chattanooga Can Do! initiative, spearheaded by the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce. We give our full support to organizations that work to strengthen the community and provide opportunities that will bring about a better quality of life for everyone in our corner of the world.
