Joseph Moinian’s Biography

Joseph Moinian is the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of The Moinian Group, an investor and developer operating in New York, Texas, Florida and California. Among the investors working with the Moinian group are large institutions, public REITs and financial firms.

Founded in 1982, The Moinian Group is one of the few national real estate groups to develop, own, and operate properties across every asset type, including office, hotel, retail, condominium, and rental apartments. Today, it boasts a portfolio with more than 20 million square feet of property, which includes properties in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas.

In Manhattan and the neighboring boroughs, it is likely that you will see a building developed or operated by The Moinian Group dotting the skyline. This is largely due to Joseph’s expertise in finding the right time and areas in which to take on a new project. This foresight has made Joseph a leader in improving neighborhoods and cultivating new ones. Examples of this include the PLG residential building in Prospect Lefferts Gardens in Brooklyn and new commercial developments in Hudson Yards and West Chelsea on New York's west side.

Joseph strongly believes in working with the local community, enriching opportunities, and promoting the cultural arts. He is a long-time supporter of The Special Children’s Center, a multi-faceted service program for children and adults with complex developmental disabilities. He is also a supporter of Keshet Eilon, an Israeli music center founded in 1990 that works to foster and promote young string musicians from Israel and abroad.

Joseph also proudly serves on the Board of the The National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a nonprofit established in memory of the victims and heroes of the 9/11 tragedy. He is also on the Board of Governors of the Real Estate Board of New York and was previously on the Board of the Skyline Museum, a part of New York’s Skyscraper Museum.
