Mission statement and Principles


Mission statement:

Silverstein Properties: We create value beyond real estate. We shape the future of how you work, live and play. Through exceptional service, hospitality, amenities, and technology, we offer an advanced atmosphere of well-being.



Silverstein Properties is a privately held, family real estate development, investment and management firm, headquartered in New York with properties across the United States. Since 1957 we have developed, managed and owned over 40 million square feet of office, residential, hotel and retail space, including the World Trade Center in Downtown Manhattan.

We enhance our communities by creating sustainable, hospitality-driven, health-oriented developments and operating properties. We pioneer and integrate advanced technology platforms to create a seamless and safe environment for work and personal lifestyle. We strive to anticipate change, capture the future, and turn workspaces and homes into experiential assets.

As we grow, our vision is balanced with conscience, conviction and the highest standards of professionalism. Our projects and platforms evolve with our world. Diversifying our assets and locations, meeting new demand, and creating solutions for the challenges ahead are part of our primary focus.

Our people are our most important asset. The soul of our firm springs from hiring top-tier professionals. We believe that good people do good business. Ethics is never reserved for one component of life, it translates throughout all that we do.

We believe we should reflect the constituencies we serve. Diversity brings better perspective, creativity and solutions. We embrace our differences, and cultivate a culture of inclusivity, collaboration, transparency and respect. We are committed to creating the optimal environment for our employees, so they can thrive both personally and professionally.

Loyalty to our clients, investors, partners and tenants is vital to our success. We seek to go beyond the tangible, remove pain points, provide excellent service, and continually fine tune and enhance the sanctuary of the human habitat and workspace. We design and plan with a focus on the people that will be inhabiting and working in our spaces.

The blueprint of our DNA is humanity, and our success offers a platform for bettering the world. As we continue to succeed, philanthropy and providing for those in need remains a top priority. We consider ourselves impactful to the extent that we can improve our communities and make the world a better place for future generations.

Our strength and stability stems from the values that serve as our corporate touchstone. Our definition of success extends far beyond our bottom line. The Silverstein footprint serves as a vehicle to create positive change across the world.
