About The McIntyre Company
The McIntyre Company was founded in 1946 by William Cleveland and his son William Louis McIntyre during the aftermath of WWII. Prior to the war, William Cleveland had a successful plaster contracting business and was the landlord to several grocery stores where William Louis would work in the meat departments. Upon returning from active duty in the United States Army, William Louis went on to attend the University of Southern California where he earned his degree in commerce and continued the family's legacy in real estate development.
Around 1947, father and son left their little built out city of San Marino, California and started searching for a similar community where they could start a successful home building company and where William Louis could raise his new family. They headed east along Garvey Avenue until they found an ideal location: the quaint little citrus community of Covina, California. Shortly after arriving, they purchased a small piece of land on the north side of town, sub-divided it, and built their first two homes. From there, the two would go on to build more than 1,500 single family homes or roughly ten percent of the city's housing stock.
In the late 1960s, William Louis was joined by his son, William Louis Jr. (Bill), and the two began developing small office buildings on major Covina thoroughfares. Their first office building, located on Rowland Street, has been the company's headquarters for more than 50 years.
With the continued success of the office projects, Bill eventually turned his attention from home building to the development and management of investment properties. Since 1972, under Bill's watch as Chairman, The McIntyre Company has developed over 1,000,000 square feet of office and retail properties, and has developed an additional 600 homes. Today, Bill and his son Andrew continue to develop and manage a variety of project types in the cities of Covina and West Covina.
