Headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, The Halle Companies was founded in 1972 by Warren Halle. Initially, his business focused on carpentry contracting, and eventually expanded into the single-family residential housing market. The addition of this discipline - and the demand for greater quality in this product - led him to the expansion of his present-day commercial contracting business.
Perhaps The Halle Companies' most ambitious business venture to date is Kingstowne - a 1,300-acre, mixed-use development in Fairfax County, Virginia. It consists of 5,500 residential units and 2.3 million square feet of commercial and retail space. Today, more than ever, Voice, Data and TV services are needed as attractive "selling tools" for their growing commercial tenants. The Halle Companies turned to Cox Business to help meet their goals.
Jon Halle and Rich Rounds have been actively revolutionizing the Kingstowne Project with a number of Cox Business implementations. Said Rich Rounds, "We're continuously utilizing Cox Business as we expand our Kingstowne Project," adding that today's discriminating tenants demand that services - like Data, Voice and TV connections - be included in their lease deals.
"With a diverse mix, including 6 office buildings, 4 flex buildings, a 16-screen movie theater, and over 500,000 square feet of retail, we definitely wanted to give our clients as many options as possible," said Rich. "Cox Business Services is clearly an excellent choice for our growing needs."
Since its purchase in 1985, The Kingstowne Project has grown to become a successful prototype for a self-sufficient residential and business community. As a partner, Cox Business has played a pivotal role in realizing Voice, Data and TV connections for Kingstowne. And moving forward, The Halle Companies is exploring more partnership opportunities with Cox Business Services.
