Commercial/residential developer Ruben Companies, which was founded more than 50 years ago, handles the investment, development, and management of dozens of office spaces, retail spaces, and apartments. Among its prized holdings are the highly coveted 600 Madison Avenue, One Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, and One Exeter Plaza in Boston. Today the umbrella company has grown to a stable of five core businesses that focus on other aspects of the business. Among them are Ruben Capital Management, which makes passive investments in real-estate debt and equity, and Workspeed Holdings, which designed online workflow applications that are used in much of several leading commercial buildings today. Although relatively small, with fewer than 50 employees, Ruben Companies has established joint ventures with several other leading real estate and investment firms, including with Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. Among their leading joint ventures are the mixed-use building at 1755 Broadway and the suburban retail shopping center Gateway Center.
