He was 94. The cause of death was not immediately made clear. Tishman’s companies have been involved in some of the city’s highest-profile properties.
Steven Spinola, president of the Real Estate Board of New York, described Tishman as a pioneer of modern technology in real estate and a committed New Yorker. “He was a direct individual who cared about the city, and I always felt that whenever he was making a decision there was a question of whether it was good for New York,” Spinola said. “Long before the world was thinking green, Bob recognized in order to improve the energy efficiency he [needed to] put a co-generation plant in his building.”
