Founded in 1979, Armada Hoffler is one of the nation's premier commercial real estate and construction companies specializing in the development, construction and ownership of quality, institutional-grade real estate located in primary markets throughout the U.S. Our projects include a diverse range of property types, from neighborhood grocery-anchored retail centers to build-to-suit and conventional office buildings to town centers, luxury apartments, and five-star hotels. Armada Hoffler primarily develops and builds projects for its own account through both public and private joint ventures, as well as for a select list of third-party clients.
Our performance across a broad spectrum of real estate products and development services has fueled the company's growth and success. Many of our successful projects are a result of design-build collaborations and fast-track schedules delivered within budget. Armada Hoffler also is a leader in structuring new and innovative avenues for development including public/private partnerships, providing an excellent foundation on which to build creative solutions.
We pride ourselves in maintaining a positive, dynamic, fun work environment that makes Armada Hoffler feel more like a family than a company. Our corporate culture is one of energy, opportunity and excitement where teamwork is encouraged and excellence is rewarded. In addition, we strongly believe in taking an active public service role. The principals have acted in such capacities as Finance Chairman for former Governor L. Douglas Wilder, Member of the Board of Visitors of The University of Virginia, Chairman of the Virginia Port Authority and Member of the State Board for Contractors.
This unique collection of experience, services, financial strength and philanthropy is the foundation for Armada Hoffler's ability to satisfy a wide variety of client and community needs.
