    Malkin Holdings is a long-time developer of residential properties. The firm was founded in 1934 by attorney Lawrence Wien, and for many years it helped innovate the idea of real estate syndication, offering direct ownership of income property to individual investors.

    Over the years the firm, then known as Wien & Malkin, ended up taking control of the land leases of several prominent buildings, including the Empire State Building, the Equitable Building, and the Lexington Hotel. In 2009 Wien & Malkin rebranded itself as Malkin Holdings. Four years later the newly named firm spun off from Empire State Realty Trust during the latter's initial public offering. The spinoff proved to be somewhat contentious, as Malkin was caught up in a number of lawsuits, including one class-action by investors who claimed the new real estate trust unfairly compensated them (most of those have settled in Malkins favor).

    Today, the firm has financing, property management, and construction arms.
