SILVERMAN, founded by brothers Eric and Paul Silverman, recently celebrated 30 years of building neighborhoods. In 1981, Eric and Paul began their careers with the renovation of a dilapidated 15 unit apartment building in Jersey City’s Paulus Hook neighborhood. In 2012, they built out GP’s Restaurant, completing the 25,000 square foot retail component of Hamilton Square, a mixed-use residential development at the site of the former St. Francis Hospital. A health club, Montessori school, baby and dog boutiques, dance studio, photography studio, doctors’ offices, wine shop, and a pharmacy now energize the Hamilton Park neighborhood.
In these 30 years, SILVERMAN restored historic landmarks, championed the development of mixed-use buildings, created affordable housing, attracted commercial and industrial tenants to Hudson County, invested in micro-brewery, New Jersey Beer Company, and brought creative new retail ventures to Jersey City. They have created over 1000 residences and over 500,000 square feet of commercial and light industrial spaces translating to thousands of jobs and households in Hudson County. Eric and Paul’s values, history, and mission are very easily summarized in the company tag line: Building Neighborhoods.
Our Guiding Values
For over thirty years, SILVERMAN has been dedicated to building neighborhoods. With honesty and integrity, we develop beautiful projects that transform communities.
SILVERMAN’s work in Hudson County goes far beyond innovative projects and quality construction. Supporting the community is just as important as developing great buildings. SILVERMAN is actively involved with many civic and non-profit organizations including Art House Productions, Hamilton Park Conservancy, Historic Downtown Special Improvement District, Hudson County Community College Foundation, Jersey Cares, Jersey City Children’s Theater, Liberty Science Center, New City Kids, New Jersey City University Foundation, New Jersey Needs You, Nimbus Dance Works, and Rising Tide Capital, to name a few.
SILVERMAN’s dedication to local arts, music, and theatre is apparent in the events they host, sponsor, and support in kind. A series of six art exhibits takes place in the lobby-gallery spaces of Hamilton Square and Majestic Theatre Condominiums curated by Brendan Carroll. The art shows, ribbon cuttings, fundraisers, and activities for the community, including the Annual Cinco de Mayo Parade and Fiesta and the Annual Hamilton Park BBQ Festival provide energy and enthusiasm to the neighborhoods.
