In the Beginning…
Since 1963 – Building The Next Generation…
Pettit & Griffin, Inc started their first single family project consisting of 19 homes on April 1, 1963 with six employees, including its founders, John H. Pettit and Howard D. Griffin, Jr.. Mr. Pettit and Mr. Griffin concentrated on development in Prince George’s County and as a team developed and sold more than 850 units in their first ten years of operation.
In the mid 1980s the company began to build and invest into commercial office, warehouse and retail centers throughout Montgomery County, MD during its construction duration of its mixed use projects.
Over the next 20 years the company grew into one of the premier mid-sized home building and development companies in the Washington Metropolitan area. Annual sales in excess of $25 million were recorded in 1988 and 1989, when the company employed over 120 employees. Operations were scaled back in the early 1990’s due to economic conditions.
Pettit Homes, LLC. a Virginia homebuilding company, constructed several neighborhoods in Spotsylvania and Orange Counties in Virginia. Pettit Homes was successful in building stylish custom style homes with modern amenities. Pettit Homes, LLC dissolved in 2008.
Today two unique divisions comprising of Pettit Development, LLC (Land Development & Excavation Services) and Pettit Management Services, LLC (Property Management & Leasing Services) operate out of the Gaithersburg, MD main office. Residential building has been limited to custom homes in favor of other development opportunities.
In 2023 we are excited to introduce North Pointe at Flower Hill! This project is the latest endeavor of the Pettit Family and consists of an upscale restaurant and retail space (now under construction) at the corner of Route 124 and Muncaster Mill Road.
