Our History

Four Points and West*Group are legacy companies of the West*Group family of companies – pioneers in the development of Northern Virginia and Greater Washington DC.  Since 1962, West*Group Properties was responsible for the development of over 600 acres in economically vibrant Tysons Corner, Virginia – today the 12th largest central business district in America, and a home to the Washington DC’s area highest concentration of Fortune 500 firms.

The late Jerry Halpin (the founding Chairman, CEO, and President of West*Group), along with other senior executives and advisors at West*Group, co‐founded Four Points in 2004 to focus on growth opportunities at urban infill sites in Washington, DC in TOD (Transit Oriented Development) locations.

Four Points’ current Chief Executive Officer, John Gerber, worked as a senior executive for more than a decade with Halpin at West*Group Properties, focusing on the final repositioning and liquidation of that portfolio between 2004‐10. Over the last 15 years, the Four Points team has been involved with more than 20 million square feet of predevelopment and development projects.
