Two Trees Management is a family-owned real estate development firm founded in 1968 by David Walentas and the late Jeff Byers. The firm is synonymous with Dumbo in Brooklyn, an erstwhile derelict industrial hub that Walentas redeveloped into a home and playground for wealthy and creative New Yorkers. As of September 2015, David's son Jed Walentas ran the firm's day-to-day operations. Two Trees has owned, managed, and developed a portfolio worth $3 billion, including more than 6,000 apartments and over 3 million square feet of office and retail space. Beginning in 1978, David Walentas started buying up property in the gritty area between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, amassing 13 buildings, including the Clock Tower Building. He then refurbished the buildings to house condominiums, rentals, artist lofts and retail nooks for up-and-coming designers. Two Trees initially kept rental prices depressed to ensure an arty, edgy mix of tenants.
