Since 1981, brothers Eric and Paul Silverman, founders and principals of SILVERMAN, have played a significant role in the renewal of Jersey City. The Silvermans, and their real estate company, SILVERMAN, have restored historic landmarks, developed award-winning mixed-use buildings, and supported the community with generous philanthropy. Their developments include Charles & Co., Hamilton Square, Two Ten 9th Street, Schroeder Lofts, Park Foundry, Majestic Theatre Condominiums, Padua Court, The Merit Building and Whittier House. Through their work, SILVERMAN has enhanced the architectural character of historic neighborhoods, spurred economic development, and brought exciting new retail and commercial ventures to Jersey City. Their philosophy is summarized in their company tag line:
Yesterday afternoon I took a walk over to Hamilton Park and visited the Green Market. There was a choral concert taking place, the playground was filled with children, the ball courts were busy, and toddlers were taking advantage of the sprinklers. You and your brother have done a tremendous job of revitalizing this neighborhood, and making it a destination place to visit, shop, and live and enjoy. Thank you for your efforts. It’s a pleasure every day to work here in your building, and be surrounded by so much life in the neighborhood
I wanted to thank you and the whole Silverman team for giving Jersey City artists such beautiful venues to showcase our work. Your commitment to the community and the arts is such an asset to the city; I really appreciate all that you do!
