On December 1st, 1968, Tony Goldman opened Goldman Properties in a 200 square foot office space with one employee on the ground. His love for historic preservation had begun. In the more than 40 years of Goldman Properties history, we have created magic in places that others have overlooked. We recognize that real change occurs when a neighborhood is pedestrian based, that is the Goldman philosophy. Street life has to be real, there has to be grit, energy and a true sense of place. We create neighborhoods where people and businesses flourish. We think big, but keep the scale human. We strive to add value to the public environment, by doing things that are bold and different and unlike anything ever done before. That is our purpose, that is our philosophy, that is our commitment.
In 1985, Goldman Properties uncovered what would be their newest zone-Miami Beach. Behind the decay of years gone by was a breathtaking pastel sweep of art deco architecture in critical scale and mass. A snapshot of the future had been taken: the American Riviera-sidewalk cafes, hotels, music and languages spilling into the streets, people everywhere. Goldman Properties’ work to realize that vision has made Miami Beach a world-renowned travel destination.
While most people looked at Wynwood as a stagnant warehouse and industrial district, Goldman Properties saw a blank canvas in which it could incorporate art, culture and hospitality while catering to the business needs of the creative entrepreneur. Today, Wynwood is an internationally recognized destination and the home to over 70 art galleries, unique food and beverage establishments, and countless creative businesses. And we are just getting started!
When Goldman Properties first discovered Soho in the late 1970s, it was a worn and dark manufacturing district. The iron clad and masonry facades were covered behind dirt and grime. Goldman Properties saw through the grit and set forth on its vision to create the most interesting midrise neighborhood in Manhattan. From unique restaurant and retail spaces to luxury lofts, Goldman Properties was the catalyst behind what is now the world class destination of Soho, New York.
In 1998, Goldman Properties discovered Philadelphia - a quaint, midsized, pedestrian friendly city nestled between New York City and Washington, D.C. Strategically designed with its grid system of streets and parks, Center City Philadelphia offered a rich inventory of 19th and 20th Century architecture. Goldman Properties commenced with a plan to resuscitate an overlooked, "red light" district located in the heart of Center City, turning it into a vibrant hub for the Creative Class.
Stone Street, NY
Stone street is the contrast of a manmade powerhouse of money and massive buildings and the remnants of old, original Dutch New York City. Stone Street brings us back to a human interaction. An oasis of tranquility in a sea of industry. Take a walk thru the cobblestone alley, first developed by Dutch colonists in the 1600s. Step into a one of the chic eateries, pubs or taverns that sit quaintly inside the concrete canyon of skyscrapers.
