Beautiful architecture and unwavering dedication to the community since 1981
Building Neighborhoods is more than the SILVERMAN tagline—it defines the company’s mission, values, architectural aesthetic, and business model for 40 years. Founded by brothers Eric and Paul, the company had a vision for the abandoned factories and rundown buildings scattered throughout Jersey City’s waterfront and downtown. While driving through the Paulus Hook neighborhood in 1981, they spotted a fire-damaged apartment building with a collapsed roof. Following a complete renovation, all fifteen apartments were rented within three weeks by those drawn to the attention to detail and luxurious lifestyle SILVERMAN provides their residents.
Since then, SILVERMAN has worked diligently to help Jersey City become a destination…the perfect place to work, live and dream. The SILVERMAN team has restored historic landmarks, created beautiful architecture, developed affordable housing, attracted commercial and industrial tenants, and brought creative retail ventures to Jersey City. They have supported local artists, funded programs for neighborhood students, and are continually recognized for their philanthropy and passion. Their award-winning work in Hamilton Park has resulted in an urban oasis of park living complimented by shops and restaurants. Nearby, in the bustling Grove Street area, residents enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the heart of downtown.
To date, SILVERMAN has created over 1,000 residences and over 500,000 square feet of commercial and light industrial space, translating to thousands of jobs and new homes. What started 35 years ago as an architectural vision for Jersey City’s downtown has grown into a deep affection for its diverse, dynamic residents. SILVERMAN is a company comprised of caring and friendly people, proud of the roots established in 1981, which continues its tradition of building Jersey City’s best collection of apartments, stores, offices and schools.
