Holladay Construction

Firm History:
In 1952, Wallace F. Holladay broke ground on 500 single family homes in Dayton, Ohio. More than 50 years and many successful projects later, The Holladay Corporation is highly regarded as an innovative real estate development company and one of the Washington area's premier homebuilders.

As an entrepreneurial private real estate company, our mission is to develop high-quality projects that create long-term value for owners, residents, tenants, investors, and the surrounding community. Instilled by integrity and a commitment to excellence, the company is comprised of over 500 dedicated employees specializing in all aspects of development, planning, zoning, finance, construction, marketing, leasing, and management.

While our corporate headquarters is in Washington, DC, the company’s first projects were in the Midwest. Today, we maintain regional offices in South Bend and Indianapolis, Indiana, as well as Nashville, Tennessee.

The Washington, D.C office, under the leadership of Wallace F. “Hap” Holladay Jr., specializes in infill residential and mixed-use development and manages our local portfolio and assisted living communities. Regional offices focus on industrial and commercial development and medical office management.

To each market and project, we bring high standards of workmanship, superb customer service, and relentless attention to detail. In turn, we enjoy an excellent reputation throughout the business community and an outstanding record of corporate citizenship.


Firm Philosophy:
The Holladay Corporation’s goal is to create successful projects that are assets to the community and pleasing to those who work and live in them.

We understand that every investment in one of our projects is an expression of confidence in our ability to create environments that provide great enjoyment as well as long-term value.

The Holladay Corporation focuses on residential and mixed-use development in the City's urban core and surrounding areas. This strategy has allowed us to capitalize on the value inherent in property well served by existing infrastructure with high barriers to entry. Infill development can be more complicated, and The Holladay Corporation benefits from its local knowledge and strong relationships within the development community and the jurisdictions within which it works.

While over the last 15 years, the Company's focus has been on high density urban housing, our philosophy, historically, has also been rooted in taking advantage of diverse opportunties. Accordingly, over the last few years, the firm has been engaged in several commercial ventures, including office development and self-storage.
