Just like the crown jewel of the organization, The Empire State Building, Tony Malkin is one of the most recognizable names in New York City real estate. A pioneer in sustainable building, Malkin has lead the way in energy efficiency retrofits, creating a new standard for the office space. Empire State Realty Trust, lead by Tony is committed to advising the CRE community and New York City in both climate mobilization and innovation.
Like many New Yorkers, Tony is no stranger to perseverance. Taking over as CEO in 1989, he has lead the organization through crises such as 9/11, The Great Recession, and economic dips in between.
Today, amidst a global pandemic hitting New York extraordinary hard, the Empire State Building is honoring first responders, doctors, nurses and other medical employees by flashing red, like an ambulance siren.
Malkin continues to lead from afar, showing that the Empire State Building has always served as a beacon of hope for the city when times are tough.
