The Goldman Properties Company

The Goldman Properties Company was founded in 1968 by chairman and CEO, Tony Goldman, the pioneering developer who has lead his company to restoring, improving and re-inventing historic neighborhoods in New York, Miami and Philadelphia. Goldman Properties Company strives to elevate the quality of life in our cities by restoring historic architecture in critical mass, recycling it structurally, preserving it aesthetically and adapting it for profitable commercial use.

Goldman sets a taste level and establishes a standard that begins to remarket the community. The company develops, operates and owns its own self-styled restaurants and hotels in the areas that they reinvent. They use their hospitality units to ignite the first changes that occur. The company focuses on establishing and developing urban self help programs that recycle human resources and improve neighborhoods. The corporate objective is to redefine and innovate the destination identity, and the quality of life in historic neighborhoods, for the public good and for commercial gain.
