In 1955, Albert G. Van Metre began a business endeavor that would evolve into a powerful enterprise. From the start, his meticulous nature and uncompromising ideals set him apart from other local developers, and his name soon became synonymous with quality and craftsmanship. In the decades he ran the company, he earned a reputation as a shrewd businessman and a generous benefactor — a reputation we strive to uphold every day.
At Van Metre, we believe the strength of a community is determined by the people who call it home. So for more than 65 years, we have been building new homes, offices, apartments and retail centers in the greater Washington region. Our portfolio of companies combines and connects to support each other's success and enrich the lives of those who live, work, play and shop in the communities we serve.
