Bruce Sinder, who helped shape the commercial landscape of Soho and Tribeca as co-founder Sinvin Realty, has died at age 55, a statement from the brokerage said. 

Sinder died from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (A.L.S.) on March 13. He was diagnosed three years ago with A.L.S., also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Last month, Sinder retired from his post at the Downtown retail and office brokerage.
 
Sinder was the brokerage’s only remaining founder when he retired.

After graduating from the University of Buffalo and the Berkeley School of Music, Sinder started out in the real estate business by selling SoHo lofts to artists in the late 1970s. In 1987, he brokered the deal that brought Dean & DeLuca to The Corner On Broadway And Prince Street.

Sinder’s other retail deals included Balthazar Restaurant, Pastis, Helmut Lang, Agnes b., and Adidas.

In Tribeca, Sinder did several leases for architectural and post-production companies, including 1100 Architect, Comedy Central, Blue Man Group, @radical.media, The Mill, Framestore and Lost Planet.

In the Meatpacking District, Sinder worked to bring in Soho House, Vitra, Bumble and bumble, and Theory. On Bleecker Street, Sinder brokered leases for both Marc Jacobs and James Perse stores.

Sinder’s retirement led to the promotion of Michael Glanzberg to principal from managing director and general counsel. Glanzberg now runs the company with principal Christopher Owles.

Along with office and retail leasing, the small brokerage handles investment sales. TRD
