Figure Eight Properties: The Name

When we were thinking of a title to fit our partnership, we could have simply slapped our names together with a hyphen and called it a day. There was also the temptation to find a catchy prefix to “stone” or “rock.”

Instead we settled on Figure Eight – which denotes both uncompromising strength and boundless opportunity. In one interpretation, the Figure Eight is an essential knot used in sailing and rock climbing. Without it, these activities could lead to failure and disaster.

We are metaphorically tethered to our clients throughout the relationship – whether it’s investors, tenants, vendors or clients.

Another view of the Figure Eight is its iconic shape for infinity. Our business has a combined experience of 150 years and we see endless years ahead to provide quality and value to those who share our vision.
