Celebrating 90 Years
Building on Legacy
90 Years and the Next Chapter
On December 6, 1928, at the direction of John D. Rockefeller Jr., the Metropolitan Square Corporation was formed to develop Rockefeller Center, one of the most ambitious projects the City of New York has ever seen. Ninety years later that legacy lives on in Rockefeller Group, one of the premier office owners in Manhattan and a nationally recognized developer, having delivered over 50 million square feet of office, residential, industrial and mixed-use projects across the United States. Today the company maintains an ownership interest in approximately six million square feet of office space developed in the modern expansion of Rockefeller Center between 1959 and 2001, and is committed to writing the next chapter in the history of the company through innovative development projects throughout the United States.
Rockefeller Group is one of the most trusted names in real estate, a leading real estate developer, owner and operator, known for its commitment to excellence and integrity.
Today the company remains focused on the selective development of innovative, high-quality office, residential, mixed-use and industrial properties in urban centers and strategic distribution markets.
The company combines the global perspective and market access of a sophisticated development and investment management platform, through its partnership with Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Estate Co. Ltd., and its strategic investments in independent property fund platforms in the United States and Europe.
