With honesty and integrity, we develop beautiful projects that transform communities
SILVERMAN, founded by brothers Eric and Paul, recently celebrated 35 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, we have restored historic landmarks, championed the development of mixed-use buildings, created affordable housing, attracted commercial and industrial tenants to Hudson County, invested in a 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.
