About Us - Company History
Sam Minskoff & Sons,the original company, was founded in 1908 and was responsible for more than $1 billion dollars worth of building construction heavily concentrated in the Metropolitan New York Area, as well as Detroit, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and Syracuse. As one of the nation's leading investment building organizations, Sam Minskoff & Sons financed, erected, marketed and managed office buildings, high rise and garden apartments, shopping centers, store buildings as well as institutional structures.
Their complete in-house development organization set them ahead of others in the Real Estate world because they were able to offer their clients benefits of long experience as both people who plan, finance and execute construction projects as well as those that pay the bills. Sam Minskoff was a pioneer, and his pioneering tradition continues to guide us to this day.
The Minskoff Organization succeeded Sam Minskoff & Sons and was headed by Henry Minskoff until his death in 1984. Today, a successor company, Minskoff Grant Realty and Management Company, in business since 1984, provides asset management and direct management for a diversified portfolio of urban and suburban office buildings and retail properties. Our most recent acquisition was a 15,513 square foot, shopping center in Croton-on-Hudson purchased in August of 2005. Currently, Minskoff Grant Realty is led by President and Chief Operating Officer Jean Minskoff Grant and Chief Executive Officer Francis C. Grant III. Minskoff Grant Realty and Management Corp. continues to offer clients and tenants the same exceptional service that both Sam Minskoff & Sons and The Minskoff Organization were renowned for. The Minskoff philosophy has been integrated throughout the entire portfolio and the Minskoff name is synonymous with excellence in the field of Commercial Real Estate in New York City.
